Lunch Account Guidelines
The Sheboygan Area School District understands the importance of serving nutritious meals daily to our students. If meals are purchased through the school nutrition program, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep a positive account balance in the students account. In order to provide clarity and accountability surrounding the school nutrition program, the following procedures regarding student meal account balances have been put in place:
Each day after the deposits have been made, a file is created of all families whose lunch account is at or below $10. A notice will be sent out through School Messenger to the family letting them know their balance and asking them to deposit money into their account.
When an account becomes over $10 negative, the student is given an alternate meal until the negative balance is paid, or cash is provided for that day’s meal. The cost of the alternate meal is $1 and will be charged to the students account.
In addition to the daily message, when the account is over $20 negative, the school principal will contact the family requesting payment of the negative balance. If after 30 days there has been no payment, the principal will notify business services and business services will take over the collection process.
Middle School and High School
Lunch accounts for Middle and High School students are handled in the same manner as Elementary with the exception that no a la carte items may be purchased on account if there is a negative account balance.
