Negative Balances on Student Meal Accounts
-If a student forgets or does not have enough money for a meal, they will be given a meal and that meal will be charged to their account. The following steps will be taken to make parents aware of their child's meal account status:
1.) Each week an automated call will be sent out to those households whose accounts have a balance of less than $4.50
2.) Students will be alerted verbally by the Food Service Assistant when their meal account is getting low and/or incurs a negative balance.
3.) Each week an automated phone call will be sent home to those households whose meal accounts have a negative balance.
4.) In addition to the phone calls, written notification will be sent home to those households whose accounts have a negative balance greater than or equal to $9.00.
5.) Once their account has incurred a negative balance that is greater than $9.00, they will no longer be given a meal until this balance is paid down.
-Parents are encouraged to use www.myschoolbucks.com which may take 24 to 48 hours to process or write a check and deposit it in the pre-payment drop box using a pre-paid envelope to ensure that the payment is applied to their child's account. It is not recommended that students pay their accounts with cash in the lunch line.
-No student will be permitted to purchase any "a la carte" items such as juice or milk if they have a negative balance on their account.
-If a household is unable to pay for their child's meal, they are strongly encouraged to apply for free and/or reduced meals. Applications are accepted at anytime throughout the year. Applications may take up to 10 school days to process and households will still be held accountable for any charges incurred until the application is approved.
