A Memo from School Food Services
Meal Payments

The school community has decided that all payments must be made in CASH ONLY.  No checks will be accepted.  Envelopes are available at the school office or you may use your own.  Please be sure to include the exact amount as the front office does not have change available.   The sealed envelope is to be turned into the school office Monday - Friday (excluding State Holidays) during the normal business hours of 7:30am to 4:00pm.


The following information MUST be labeled on the OUTSIDE of the sealed envelope:

1. Student's first and last name;

2. Grade;

3. Classroom number;

4. Teacher's name; and

5. Amount depositing (if multiple students please indicate how much per child)


Incomplete information may delay proper crediting to your child's account.  Payments must be received by the office by 2:30pm to be processed and credited on the same day. 

Low and Negative Balances
Meal balance reminders are sent home weekly with students for accounts equal to or less than $15.00.  Students with negative account balances may receive daily notification including phone calls, emails, and written reminders until their account reflects a positive balance. After seven (7) consecutive attempts to notify parent, students with negative balances equal to or greater than $-17.50 may not be able to purchase school lunch. If a payment cannot be made, please contact the office at 307-7203 or send a home lunch and drink for the child.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
