Program Information

Your child's school day just got healthier! School lunches now include more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain-rich foods; only fat-free or low-fat milk; "right-size" meals with portions designed for a child's age; and less saturated fat, trans fat and sodium. The changes in school meals, the first in 15 years, are based on the latest nutritional guidelines.

Here are some important facts about the new school meals:

  • The new school lunch provides 1/3 of the average daily calorie needs for kids by age.

  • Some highly active students, like athletes, may need more calories. Some schools may offer second helpings of fruits and vegetables and/or a second carton of milk as part of the meal or as healthy ala carte options. Schools can also operate after-school snack and supper programs. Students and/or sports teams can also bring food from home.

  • In practice, many students are being served the same amounts of protein as before under the new standards.

Your child can learn good habits for life by making healthy food choices and getting proper exercise now. This year is a transition year as schools implement these new standards and work together with parents, to ensure that every child, in every community across America, has access to healthy and nutritious meals. Encourage them to try new foods and eat the healthy food offered. Reinforce healthy eating by offering similar new foods at home.

Negative Balance Policy

 Parent/Family are now strongly encourages to make all meal payments in advance in order to avoid negative status. A family food service account will be allowed to charge you to $50.00 “account cap”. Students are not permitted to charge a la carte items of their negative balance is over the “account cap”. After reaching the “account cap”, the student’s parent/family will receive a direct notice of their negative balance and immediate payment is expected. If no response or payment is received after 30 days of “account caps” reminder notice; a formal letter, email, and phone call will be directed to the parent and building principal’s attention for further collection efforts. Reminder, all accounts must be paid by the end of the school year. No charging will be permitted the last 2 weeks of school. All students will be served a meal regardless of their account balance status in order to preserve the student’s dignity and avoid discrimination.
