Nutrition Services

New Food Service Policy!

A document with more information about the application process is linked here


Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year the District will no longer be providing a full reimbursable meal to the students whose family have a negative food account balance greater than -$25. Families are encouraged to pack a lunch for their student until the account is brought up to date.

The following procedures shall be put into place in each of the schools for those students who are classified as Reduced or Regular Priced meals AND their current lunch balance is below negative $25 AND they do not have the cash on hand to pay for their meal that day:

Forrest Street Early Learning Center: Students will receive the same reimbursable meal that all students receive. The family food service account will be charged the appropriate price for that meal.

Red Creek Elementary: Students will stop at the office on their way to the lunch room to pick up a brown bag snack that is not a reimbursable meal. The family food service account will not be charged for that snack.

Middle School and High School: Students will be invited to receive a lunch from the Garden Bar only. This is not a reimbursable meal, nor will the family food service account be charged for that meal.

Families that have accumulated negative food service balances over $350, after establishing a payment plan with the District, can resume full participation in the food service offerings as long as the terms of the payment plan are followed.

Additionally, if you have a student that is in their senior year, they will not be able to participate in the graduation ceremony if there is a negative family food service balance.

All families are encouraged to fill out the Free and Reduced Price Meal application before school starts AND AGAIN anytime throughout the year if your financial circumstances change.

The nutrition services program is an integral part of the total education program, and as such is governed by the same principles and type of control as any other division of the district. The district provides meals through participation in child nutrition programs such as the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the National School Breakfast Program (NSBP). As part of the nutrition services program, the district also offers ala carte and catering services. We also partner with Jackson County's Jackson in Action program to bring students and families the Harvest of the Month movement, which teaches students about fruit and vegetable choices! Want some recipes to try at home? See the Harvest of the Month at Jackson in Action's website.
