Important Update – School Meal Payment Policy

The policy now limits a student’s ability to choose a meal of choice once they have reached a balance of $50 owed.  When that occurs, the student will be served an alternative lunch that will consist of a sun butter and jelly sandwich, fruit, vegetable, and white milk, which will be charged against the student’s meal account.

Also, you may choose to opt out of the lunch program which will result in your child not being able to participate in the program.  To opt out, please email
