When the school year starts, a student’s free and reduced lunch status carries over from the previous year. The deadline to turn in a new application for free and reduced lunch will be the end of the first week of October.
Students can charge up to $7.00 of debt or $1.00 of debt if they are at reduced status for daily featured school meals (these amounts would allow the student to charge up to two (2) meals). No a-la-carte or snack items will be allowed to be charged to an account with insufficient funds. Once a student exceeds these limits, they will be provided an alternative meal to be determined by the school district and will no longer be able to charge on their account.
Once the account is paid in full, the cycle starts over again. All meal balances (positive or negative) carry over from the previous school year.
