Charging Policy

  • Students may charge up to ten meals at Elementary Schools, five meals at Middle Schools and two meals at High Schools.
  • Students receive one meal at their normal status. This can be paid at the regular price rate, reduced at the USDA set price for the meal, or free for those who qualify for free meals. 
  • Any additional meal or food must be paid for at the a’ la carte price.

Examples:

  • A student that receives free lunches would receive the first meal free but wants an extra milk. The student would pay $.40 for the milk. 
  • A student that pays for lunch wants two meals. The student would receive the first meal at $2, but would need to pay the a’la carte price for second meal.
