2023-2024 Charging Policy
Students use a prepaid lunch account to purchase his or her school meals. Students will be allowed a grace period of two days to continue to purchase school meals only when the account balance has been exhausted. Two days grace period is the monetary equivalent of two breakfast and two lunch meals at their designated campus. The District will allow the student's account to accumulate a negative balance with no fees or interest applied to the account. After the student reaches the maximum charge limit, the student may receive an alternate meal.
Maximum Charge Limit at Elementary: $8.70
Maximum Charge Limit at Middle School: $9.60
Maximum Charge Limit at LFC & AHS: $13.00
Students with a negative balance will not be allowed to charge a la carte, snacks or extra items. They will only be allowed to charge what constitutes as a meal. When the maximum charge limit has been reached, the student will need to eat breakfast before coming to school and bring a lunch from home until the account has funds.
A district email goes out as soon as the account is below zero and continues weekly as long as there is a negative balance in the account.
Parents are strongly encouraged to continually monitor their child’s meal account balance.
Parents will receive an automated district communication weekly that the student’s account is exhausted.
