Food Service Policy

Negative Balances in Student Accounts

  

This statement is being issued to clarify the notification process and policy for negative balances in your food service account.

 

*          As a friendly reminder, parents are responsible for ensuring that there are adequate funds to cover their child’s lunch each day.  Please remember, if there is a financial difficulty in the household, free and reduced lunches are available.  Applications are available on the District Web site (www.westonps.org) or from the Central Office throughout the school year.

 

*          The Food Service Office sends emails twice a week indicating a negative account balance in a student’s account to the parent/guardian.  If a parent would like an email notification when the account is getting low, they can sign up for this free service on www.myschoolbucks.com.

 

*          The Food Service Office obtains email addresses for each student’s parent/guardian from the schools at the start of the year.  Parents are asked to provide a valid email address to the schools at the start of the year and to notify the Food Service Office of any changes to this email address during the school year.

 

*          It is important to note that the cafeteria will never deny your child a meal even if the account is negative, but the following limitations will apply.

 

When an Elementary or Intermediate paid or reduced student’s account is at negative $15 or more, the child will be offered an alternative lunch consisting of a cheese sandwich with hand fruit and one milk or water, and charged the meal price.  The child will not be allowed to charge any snacks, drinks or a la carte entrees on their account.

 

When a Middle School paid or reduced student’s account is at negative $20 or more, the child will be offered an alternative lunch consisting of a cheese sandwich with hand fruit and one milk, and charged the meal price.  The child will not be allowed to charge any snacks, drinks or a la carte entrees on their account.

 

When a High School paid or reduced student’s account is at negative $25 or more, the child will be offered an alternative lunch consisting of a cheese sandwich with hand fruit and one milk, and charged the meal price.  The child will not be allowed to charge any snacks, drinks or a la carte entrees on their account.
