Notice Regarding Lunch Accounts

Secondary students will be allowed to charge 3 meals. After 3 meals students will receive an alternate meal including a sandwich, fruit and milk. After 8 days of alternative meals students will no longer receive a meal until the bill is paid or he/she brings money for the meal that day. Students will be advised of their account balance by the cashier. Negative balance statements will be given to the student weekly. A la carte items will not be sold to students with a negative balance. Students will not be allowed to charge A la carte items. All monies received by the school will first be applied to amount owed before A la carte items are available for sale. Parents are responsible for all charges incurred by their child. Students currently approved for free meals will receive a meal regardless of amount of money owed.  All debts follow students from one school to another when they change schools and from one school year to the next.
