Kindergarten Snack

A daily snack has been a long tradition of the kindergarten and pre-kindergarten programs in the Pleasant Valley Community School District. All snacks are provided by Pleasant Valley food service, and all snacks meet the district's wellness and peanut/tree nut policies.
 
The snacks are $36.00 per semester. Students who receive reduced price meals pay $21.60 per semester. Students who receive free meals do not need to pay the fee if they have turned in a student fee waiver with their meal application.
 
Each day's kindergarten snack is listed at the bottom of each day's menu. A variety of milk is serve
d on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On
Tuesdays and Thursdays, dried fruit, assorted crackers, applesauce cups, and pretzels may be offered. Please notify the school if your child has a food allergy.

SNAP

The food service program at Pleasant Valley Community Schools runs on a computerized program called WinSNAP.
 
Each student has a customized account number for food service items. This is a debit account, not a credit account. This means money is deposited into the account and the student can purchase food items using their account. At the secondary level, the student will enter his/her account number into a keypad. A food service cashier will then debit the price of food items for purchase.
 
For elementary students, a scan sheet, similar to what is currently used in the media centers, will be used to identify each student and their account. At any time, you may call the office to request a printout that identifies the fund balance and items purchased on your child's account. You may make a deposit into the account at any time by sending cash or check to the school office. We request that if possible, a minimum of $5.00 be deposited at any one time. If a student has cash with them, no change will be given when a food item is purchase since this is a debit system. For example, if a student has $5.00 and purchases $1.85 worth of food items, the remaining $3.15 will be placed into their account for future use.
 
For grades K-8, the system will generate a low balance lettrer when your child's account reaches a balance that totals five days of hot lunch purchases. This letter will be sent home with your child. If there is no money in the account, the purchase will be charged (K-8 only, High School students are not allowed to charge) and the student will have a negative account balance. This balance may accumulate to an amount that totals 5 days of hot lunch prices.
