Lunch Account Online Access

3 months ago


The online lunch account access allows parents and guardians to check their students' lunch account balance and monitor what charges to the account. 

Families must have a user name and password to login to their account. To receive these, please send an email to Sue Ellingson , indicating in the email your choice for a password. Usernames are pre-assigned by the software.

Features:

Family Accounts - All students from one family share one account. This means only one check needs to be sent for all the students in a family, and it may be sent to any school building.

District-Wide Use - Students may use the funds in this account for breakfast and lunch at any of the three school buildings.

Charging Levels for Students

3 months ago

To help manage your student's account use, we have set up the following charging levels:

  • Level I - Meal only - students may charge one meal per serving period (lunch and breakfast) per day.
  • Level II - Allow charging meals, plus extra servings and a la carte items.

Please inform your students of their charging levels. The staff will make every attempt to follow these levels, but it is the responsibility of the student to know what they can and cannot charge, particularly at the Jr-Sr High School level where there are more options for students.

If you have any request that is not covered by the two levels, such as extra milk only or breakfast limits, please let us know so we can put a notation on the account. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail Sue Ellingson or call 641-466-3331 ext. 224.

If you did not indicate a charging level on your registration form, they will be automatically be a level I.  If you would like to change it, let us know.

Free and Reduced Meals

3 months ago

Did you know that you can apply for free and reduced meals at any time through-out the school year? If you were not eligible at the start of the year, but have had a change of income from events such as being laid off, the free and reduced program can help out.

Not only does this program help families make ends meet, it is also beneficial for the school. Many grants give preference to schools with a higher percentage of students on the free and reduced lunch program. The higher the percentage, the more funds that can be available for the district.  

Free and Reduced Meals - How It Works
Students on the free or reduced lunch program are eligible to receive one lunch and one breakfast at the free or reduced price. Each meal must consist of three items from different food groups to qualify.

BREAKFAST: 1/2 cup of a fruit is now required for a meal. Students must take 3 of 4 offered food groups:

  • milk
  • fruits/vegetables
  • grains/bread
  • meat/meat alternative

LUNCH: students must take 3 of 5 offered food groups. As required by the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, students are required to take at least 1/2 cup of a fruit or vegetable. The 5 food groups are:

  • milk
  • fruits
  • grains/bread
  • vegetables
  • meat/meat alternative

If what is on the tray does not qualify as a meal, the items will be charged at a la carte prices - you will NOT receive the free/reduced benefit. Extra servings are not included in the free/reduced program and will be charged at regular prices. These rules are set by the USDA as part of the National School Lunch Program.
