Payment distribution

  • Pre-payment of meals for a minimum of two weeks is encouraged; however, monthly, quarterly, or bi-yearly pre-payments are accepted and have proven to be convenient for parents. A minimum payment of $25 per family covers all siblings, regardless of building attended

    • Payments cover breakfast, lunch, milk, and a la carte, as purchased

Meal Charging Procedure

  • Meal account balance notification

    Families are encouraged to monitor meal account balances and make online payments in Skyward/RevTrak. If a low/negative balance occurs: 

    • Families are notified via Skylert (call/text/email)
    • Cashiers will also inform students of their lunch account balance if low
    • If an account has a negative balance, students are allowed to charge meals, but cannot charge a la carte or extra items

    District’s official meal charging procedure

    The following are the steps taken when family account balances reach:

    • -$50 or greater will receive a letter mailed home with the specific amount owed.
    • -$100 or greater will receive a call from the school district. Families must send food from home for the student for meals and set up a payment plan with the District. 

    Any accounts $-50 or greater at the end of the year will be sent home a letter from the District with the balance owed. If no response is received, the remaining balance will be turned over to a collections agency.

    For more information, please read our Meal Charging Procedure section of the Food Service Handbook.
