New Procedures for Unpaid Lunch Balances
Changes regarding unpaid lunch balances were recently implemented by the National School Lunch Program. Starting with the 2017-18 school year, a student will be allowed to charge up to three regular reimbursable lunches after his/her account reaches a zero balance. If the account is not replenished at that point, the student may be served an alternative lunch for an additional three days. For more information about the payment of lunch fees, please review District 47 Board Policy 4:122. Parents will receive notification from the school about their unpaid lunch balances, but are also encouraged to set up a low-balance alert through the MyPaymentsPlus lunch payment system.
