Student Negative Lunch Balance Guidelines

Attention Parents/Guardians:

With the new school year upon us, it is important that we address the negative lunch balances that have been carried over from last year. Please read below for the negative lunch balance guidelines that are now in effect with the start of the school year:

Students with negative lunch balances carried over from last school year, the following guidelines are now in effect with the 2016-17 school year:

Any student who starts the 2016-17 school year with negative lunch balances from last school year will be served a regular lunch the first three days of school, Wednesday, August 24, 2016 through Friday, August 27, 2016.  Those students will not be allowed to purchase any other lunch or a la cart items during that first week.

For high school and middle school students, if their negative balances from last school year are not paid by Monday August 29, they will not be able to purchase/receive lunch from the cafeteria until their balance is paid.

These high school and middle school students who have previous negative lunch balances from last school year will not be able to participate in dances and /or field trips until those balances are paid.

For elementary students if their negative lunch balances from last school year are not paid by Monday, August 29 they will receive a cheese sandwich, vegetable and milk for five consecutive days thereafter.  After the five days they will not be able to purchase/receive lunch from the cafeteria until their balance is paid.

These elementary students who have lunch balances from last school year will not be able to participate in dances and /or field trips until those balances are paid.

Students starting with a zero balance for the 2016-2017 school year, the following guidelines are in effect:

Elementary students will be allowed to go into a negative balance up to $10.00.  At that time they will receive a cheese sandwich, vegetable and milk.  If their balance is not paid within 5 days, they will not be able to purchase/receive a lunch from the cafeteria until their balance is paid.

High School and Middle School students will be allowed to go into a negative balance up to $10.00.  At that time they will receive a cheese sandwich, vegetable and milk.  If their balance is not paid within 3 days, they will not be able to purchase/receive a lunch from the cafeteria until their balance is paid.

No students who have negative lunch balances will be able to participate in school dances and/or field trips until the negative lunch balance is paid.
