Prior to the beginning of school year the lunch policy and procedures are communicated to all families through orientations, the school handbook and the communication of daily procedures.  The policies and procedures are also communicated on the school webpage under the student handbook section. The following lunch procedures apply to all students; it is the student and parent/guardian’s responsibility to monitor their child’s daily balance. Parents are encouraged to monitor their child’s lunch account on Powerschool. If you need assistance with how to monitor your child’s lunch account on Powerschool please contact the school office and our staff will assist you through this process. Students are allowed to charge up to 3 meals. If a student does not bring money after the 3 charges, the student is not allowed to eat the main meal unless they are given permission by an Administrator. The student is provided and is allowed to eat an alternate meal until their money is paid and the child has a positive lunch balance. The child does not need to pay for the alternate meal but will not receive the main meal until his or her lunch account is in the positive. The alternate meal is accessed in the same lunch line as the main meal and is presented in the same manner as the main meal. The school office communicates your child’s negative lunch balance by sending an automated phone message informing parents/guardians that their child has a negative lunch balance. If a child transfers to a different school district or it is at the end of the school year and your child’s lunch balance is in the negative the school will not officially sign the student out and records may not be released until the child’s lunch account is paid.  If you have any questions with your child’s lunch account you can contact the school office and visit with Kim Miller at 402-564-8518.


    All meals served must meet meal patterns established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  However, if a child has been determined by a doctor to be disabled and the disability would prevent the child from eating the regular school meal, we will make any substitutions prescribed by the doctor.  If a substitution is needed, there will be no extra charge for the meal.  If you believe your child needs substitutions because of a disability, please get in touch with us for further information.  All students eating lunch (either their own or from the school) will eat in the cafeteria and not on the carpet or in classrooms.
