Our meal program is a PRE PAY program and it is the responsibility of each family to maintain a positive balance in their account while the children are attending school. You can see your balance any time on the Campus Parent Portal site. Contact Mr. Parry 983-5741 ext. 9 or email@example.com if you aren’t already set up with Campus. You will still receive a statement each week in your Wednesday folders.
The Arlington School District No. 38-1 Board of Education has established a meal charge policy (see attached) on dealing with delinquent school lunch bills. The policy became effective in July 2017, and only allows a negative balance of fifty dollars per family before replacing normal school meals with an alternate meal of a sandwich and a carton of milk. Parents will have the option to pay cash on a daily basis for their child’s meals when the family account is at the maximum negative amount. Parents will be notified by School Reach that the child/children will be denied normal meals in the lunchroom unless the bill is paid in full.
You can view your families balance 'real time' on Campus (contact Mr. Parry for access)
Meal statements get put in the youngest or only child's Wednesday folder if your account has $20 or less in it.
Statements are printed Monday afternoon when all meals have been purchased for the day, or Tuesday morning before any meals have been consumed.
When you receive a statement, please remit payment in an envelope with your child's name on it and mark the folder with an X or check mark so we are aware there is something inside for us. The payments can be returned in your child's Wednesday folder or sent with a responsible child. This check must be written separate from any milk or activity pass checks. Specify in the memo, "meals". Thank you for your prompt payments.
If you receive a statement after you have remitted payment, please call Erin directly at 983-5598 Ext. 222 to verify that the payment has been received. If your payment has not made it to my office prior to you calling me, I will contact the correct individuals and see if they have overlooked a Wednesday folder or if a child still has the money in their book bag, etc. Mistakes happen and when the correct individual is notified, they can easily be corrected. Thanks for your understanding.
