School Lunch Charge Policy
Charges are designed to cover a situation in which parents or students forget to provide or bring monies for breakfast/lunch. Students who have forgotten or lost money may charge meals in the cafeteria. Under no circumstance may ala carte items be charged. It is the procedure of the cashier to verbally remind the student that their account is low to try to avoid meal charges.
Students may accumulate up to five (5) breakfast/lunch charges. Charge letters go home weekly. A verbal reminder is given to the student daily that their account is in arrears. On the fifth charge, the cashier will inform the student that they will be receiving a complimentary meal the next day if they do not have money or a check. If the student has exceeded the maximum charges, the cashier calls for the manager or assistant manager, who takes the student aside and gives them a complimentary sandwich and milk. When the student has accumulated five (5) charges, a phone call to the home that afternoon is required to inform the parent that the student will not be allowed to charge until the account is solvent.
If a student has charges on his/her account but has cash to pay for a meal, the cashier must take the money for the meal and then remind the student of the charges on their account. The cashier may take the change, if any, up to $10.00 and put it against the charges on the student’s account. If all the change is not needed to pay the charges on the account, the cashier will ask the student if they want the balance of the monies to be put on their account or given to them.
Under no circumstances is the student to be embarrassed in front of his/her peers. The cashier needs to call for the manager or assistant manager, who will discreetly take the student away from the other students and inform the student on the charge procedures.
Staff and guest meals may not be charged.
