A positive meal account balance should be kept at all times. Meal envelopes are available at all school sites. Students K‐7 receive a low balance notice when account gets to $3.00. A negative balance notice is sent daily when student reaches a negative balance. If a student exceeds the negative $3.00 balance an alternative meal is offered for a short time.

Junior and Senior High students need to keep a positive balance in their meal account as no alternate meal is offered.

Junior and Senior High students are offered a variety of meal choices through three different serving lines; Blue Tray serving line offers a daily theme bar Monday‐Friday; Build‐A‐Meal serving line offers a variety of entrée, fruit, and vegetable options to choose from.
Students who participate in the free/reduced meal program or the $1.50 meal pricing, must
take ½ cup of fruit or vegetable plus two other meal components, as required by USDA.
An ala carte line is also available to junior and senior high students. Students who wish to
purchase from this line must have money in their account as this line is not part of the
free/reduce meal program.
