Fayette County Public Schools School Nutrition Program Meal Charge Procedure
Fayette County Public Schools participate in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program which permits the school system to offer free and reduced priced meals to students who qualify. The School Nutrition Program (SNP) is a self-sustaining enterprise through the local board of education. Therefore, the program must rely on meal payments and federal/state reimbursements to fund the program. Unpaid debts are disallowed by the Federal School Nutrition Program Regulations; as a result, unpaid debts must be collected and paid to the School Nutrition Program.
Payment Responsibility for Free/Reduced Price Meal Applicants:
It is the parents'/guardians' responsibility to provide the means for their child to be properly fed and ready to learn. In order to do this, parents have three options:
- Provide money for the child or children to purchase a school meal
- Complete the free/reduced application to determine eligibility of meal benefits
- Send a lunch from home
All students are eligible to apply for free or reduced meal benefits. Federal guidelines allow a maximum of ten (10) days to approve a new free and reduced price meal application. No student is allowed a free and reduced price meal without a current approved application on file in school nutrition. Parents/guardians who apply for free and reduced price meal benefits are responsible for payment of all school meals and accumulated charges until approval is granted.
Once approval is granted, parents will receive a notification letter of a student’s eligibility showing the effective date. If a notification letter is not received within ten (10) days, parents should check with the School Nutrition Manager to see if the free and reduced application has been received.
School breakfast and lunch accounts can be funded through multiple methods:
- Cash or check ($100.00 Max Check Limit) payments to the cafeteria
- MySchool Bucks.com using a debit or credit card
All monies paid will be deposited into the student’s account. Any/all monies given to the cafeteria will first be applied towards any outstanding charge balances. As always, checks will not be accepted during the month of May at any school for prepayment of breakfast or lunch.
Students with meal charges will be denied other purchases, such as a la carte, extra milk, etc.
Meal Charge Procedure:
Elementary Schools – maximum of 3 meal charges
Middle and High Schools – No charges
Adult – No charges
Breakfast – No charges
A La Carte Items – No charges
Excessive Charges/ Alternative Meal:
It’s the desire of the SNP that all students receive a healthy meal. Parents and/or guardians are held responsible to provide the means for their child(ren) to be properly fed and ready to learn. In the event any student has reached the maximum charge limit, (3 for ES and 0 for MS/ HS) the student will be given an alternative meal. An alternative meal will include a cheese sandwich and milk only. If a child has received the alternative meal 3 consecutive times, they must be referred to the school level administrator. At that time, the administrator will need to decide whether to contact the child’s parents or the school’s social worker.
Congrats to our Cafeteria Manager, Brenda Strickland!
Brenda Strickland, nutrition manager at Inman Elementary, is the second recipient of the Cheryl Calhoun Award, established last year by the school system’s nutrition department to recognize the outstanding achievements of school nutrition managers.
The school system’s nutrition staff nominated and voted on the individual they felt was the most qualified for the award. School Nutrition Director Kokeeta Wilder says Strickland best exemplifies reliability, dedication, hard work, and a positive attitude.
Named in honor of the district’s longest serving school nutrition director who lost her battle with cancer in January 2007, the Cheryl Calhoun Award recognizes nutrition managers who exemplify the professional qualities demonstrated by Calhoun: dedication, hard work, and commitment to excellence.
Strickland joins last year’s inaugural winner, Brenda White of Fayette County High, as a recipient of the elite award.
