Charging Procedures

Parents are strongly encouraged to continually monitor their child’s meal account balance.

Elementary students are allowed to charge up to three reimbursable meals (this includes breakfast and/or lunch). If after three charges against the account the account remains negative, the household will be contacted and the student will receive an alternate meal. Regular meals will resume when the charge balance is cleared and the account has a positive balance.

Secondary students are allowed to charge up to three reimbursable meals (this includes breakfast and/or lunch). As the account becomes negative, the household will be contacted. Meals and snacks must be paid for by either money on the student’s account or money in hand at time of purchase. Alternate meals are not available at middle or high schools. Regular meals will resume when the charge balance is cleared and the account has a positive balance.

No a la carte food is allowed to be charged at any time or purchased if the student has a negative balance, however, meals can be purchased with money in hand at the point of service. Automated phone calls will be done weekly for households of students with negative account balances.

If a parent/guardian wishes to request limits on items a child can purchase or a “no charging” notification on the account (elementary students), the request must be submitted in writing or via email to the campus Child Nutrition Manager.
