MEAL CHARGES & NEGATIVE BALANCES
Students have use of a Family meal account. When the balance reaches $0.00 a Family may charge no more than -$25.00 to this account. When the Family account reaches this limit, the student(s) shall not be allowed to charge further meals or a la carte items until the negative account balance is paid. A student will be offered an alternative lunch at no cost. Students who qualify for free meals shall never be denied a reimbursable meal, even if they have accrued a negative balance from previous purchases. Students with outstanding meal charge debt shall be allowed to purchase a meal if the student pays for the meal when it is received. Families will be notified of an outstanding negative balance once the negative balance reaches -$0.01. Families may be notified by email, automated calling system or letters sent home with student or mail.
Families may add money to their account the following ways:
1. PaySchools – online electronic payment options
2. Pay by cash or check at the school or district office
