Procedure for Students with Unpaid Meal Charges
Parents/Guardians shall monitor their student’s school meal account to ensure that they always have a positive balance. In the event that a student does not have a positive balance, they will be able to charge no more than $10 in meals to their account. Only reimbursable meals may be charged. A la carte items may not be charged. Communication about a negative meal balance will be sent to parents/guardians. The grace-period is the $10 charge limit. Thereafter, students who have a negative balance over the $10 charge limit, will be offered a courtesy meal, which will continue to be charged to the student’s account and will accumulate until paid in full. There will be a maximum of ten courtesy meals provided, then no further charges will be allowed until parents/guardians pay the account balance and add funds to the student’s meal account. An alternative meal may be provided at no cost to the student until payment is received.

In the event that your student has a negative balance, your student will receive a note from Cafeteria Manager, sent through your student’s teacher. Additionally, Nutrition Services will email a negative balance notice to the email address on record through Skyward once a week until there is a positive balance in the account. Via myschoolbucks.com, parents can receive email alerts based on the low balance threshold the parents select.
