The Nutrition Staff of WCV want to make sure every meal served within our schools is safe and nutritious. Because WCV does not provide refrigeration for meals brought from home, we want to make sure you have all the information you may need to keep meals sent from home safe and healthy. The following links have been provided by the USDA.

MEAL CHARGES & NEGATIVE BALANCES
Students have use of a Family meal account. When the Family account falls below zero, the student(s) shall not be allowed to charge extra milk or a la carte items until the negative account balance is paid. 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 cash 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
