Full Pay Students Elementary, Middle and High School Students will pay for meals at the district’s published standard rate each day.  A student will be allowed to charge a maximum of three days to their account after the balance reaches zero.  Once a student has charged those three meals, he/she will not be allowed to charge ala carte items, however he/she will be offered a designated menu alternative.  Sample: cheese sandwich, veggie sticks, fruit and milk.

If you have more than one student in the district, ONE deposit (check or cash) can be made for all of them.
