Although not required by law, the Board of Education recognizes that, on occasion, students may forget to bring meal money to school, and will allow limited charging of school meals. To ensure that students do not go hungry, but also to promote responsible student behavior and minimize fiscal burden to the District, the Board will allow student who may forget meal money to “charge” the cost of meals as follows:
Only regular school lunches and breakfasts may be charged (this applies to all paying students whether they are paying full-price or reduced-prices) as follows:

  • Grades K-5: Will be allowed to charge 3 meals. After 3 charges, students will be served alternate meals (i.e. peanut butter and jelly sandwich, cheese sandwich, or equivalent) until their account is properly funded.

  • Middle School 6-8: Will be allowed to charge 3 meals. After 3 charges, no meals will be provided until their account is properly funded.

  • High School 9 – 12: Allowed to charge one meal, after one charge, no meals will be provided until their account is properly funded.
