In accordance with Free and Reduced Meal Guidelines, a child’s eligibility for free and reduced meals from the 2018-19 school year (last year) will be carried into the 2019-20 school year for 30 days (until September 30, 2019). Parents wishing to continue receiving free or reduced meal prices will need to complete and return the free and reduced meal forms as soon as possible. Whether a child qualified or not in a previous year, anyone can apply for this school year. With the new federal guidelines it is possible for a child to be eligible for the first 30 days, but not for the rest of the year. To keep from losing eligibility, all parents interested in free and reduced meals should complete the forms and return them by September 30, 2019.

Food Service Policy Changes (Policy 5550)
The purpose of this policy is to maintain consistent meal account procedures throughout the District. Unpaid charges place financial strain on District finances. The Food Service Department is responsible for maintaining food charge records and for notifying the District’s accounting department of outstanding balances.
Changes for this coming year:
Parents/guardians of students with negative balances will be notified electronically, by correspondence, by phone call from the Accounting Department, or by phone call from the Food Service Department.
Any charges not paid before the end of the year will be carried forward into the next school year. Graduating seniors must pay all charges in full. Failure to do so may result in the delinquent student being denied participation in graduation ceremonies.
Families are encouraged to apply for free/reduced meals at any time during the school year (Applications may be obtained through the school office). Written notification will be issued upon determination of qualifications.
Does your child have a food allergy that school personnel should be made aware? If so, please download the Medical Statement for Student Requiring Meal Modification form and have it completed by your medical professional. This is a yearly document that must be kept on file with the district. If you have any questions, please contact your school's secretary, kitchen staff, or Karen Hemme, Food Service Director (660.463.2246).
