Meal Charge Procedure

The following procedures are established to address situations where a student does not have sufficient funds in their account for breakfasts and/or lunches. The term charge means the cost of the lunch will be charged to the student account and will result in a negative balance which must be paid immediately. The goal of this procedure is to develop responsibility as students transition through the school buildings and take on more accountability. The procedure is consistent with the latest guidance provided by the USDA and the Division of Food & Nutrition of the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
