lunch account at any time. Students will be warned when their account is at the $5.00 mark that they are in need of lunch money.

All students are only allowed to be $5.00 delinquent in their account. After that they will NOT be allowed

to purchase any meal or extras until a deposit is made into their account.

If a student does not have lunch money and is at the negative $5.00 mark and has not brought a sack

lunch, then they will be charged for a bread & butter sandwich. If a student brings cold lunch from home

and would like to drink milk with it, they may purchase a carton and have $.50 deducted from their meal
