Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program:

To introduce the children to new fruits and vegetables every student will receive for free a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable for their morning snack.

Meal Prepayment System:

The Elementary Schools have a computerized program for the management of school meals that assigns an account number to each student. This system allows us to provide better service to students and parents, as well as account for all meals served at The Elementary School. This system is designed to protect the privacy of those students who may be receiving free or reduced price meals. The school meal program operates on a pre-pay basis. It is expected that all meals, milk, etc. will be paid for in advance. Payment for the week is expected on Monday (Tues. if absent or a holiday). Payment may be made for the week, two weeks, month, etc. See flyer to the right about My School Bucks online payment system.

In accordance with School Wellness Policies and school board policy it has been established that no student shall go hungry while attending school. In conjunction with this policy the following collection procedures have been established.

    1. Nutritional Service personnel will send out bills every two weeks to all students with a negative balance, (Please check your Child’s backpack for the bill), followed by a phone call/email reminding you of the negative balance. Free/reduced meal applications will be offered.

    2. When the student’s negative balance reaches $25.00, the Food Service Director will notify the principal. The principal will send home a letter notifying the parent/guardian of the balance.

    3. Whenever any check issued to the District is returned as not collectible, as required by state statute, the SAU charges a fee of $25.00 per check, plus the amount of said check.

    4. Adults may not charge food or beverages. Payment must be made in advance or at the time of service.

Checks should be made payable to The Madison Elementary Hot Lunch program. Please write your
