SSISD High School Meal Charging Policy
Purpose and Procedures
Subject: Charging Policy
If a parent fails to prepay or provide cash for the student to pay on site, the student will be limited to 3 consecutive charges only, after three days of charging students will be provided with a complimentary meal for three days only. If parents continue to fail in providing their child with funds to purchase a meal or they do not provide a lunch from home, the superintendent will be notified to decide further actions to be taken.
High School Students will be allowed to charge up to a negative balance of 3 meals. The student’s parent/guardian will be notified of the date they will be receiving a complimentary meal.
If a high school student receives 3 consecutive complimentary meals administration will be notified. At this point administration will inform cafeteria staff on how to handle the account from there.
