New School Lunch Charge Procedure 

2016-2017 Child Nutrition Department Changes

In an effort to reduce waste, reduce outstanding debt, and create an efficient food service environment, FCS will be making a few changes throughout the food service program which will take effect at the start of the 16-17 school year. These changes will help our cafeterias and school meal programs function as efficiently as possible.

CEP will remain in place for all elementary schools, providing free breakfasts and lunches for all elementary students. Full paid breakfast prices will remain at $1.25 at both FMS and Ross. Reduced price breakfasts will remain at $0.30. Full priced lunches at FMS will now cost $2.35 and reduced cost lunches will remain at $0.40. Full priced lunches at Ross High School will now cost $2.60 and reduced cost lunches will remain at $0.40. Adult lunches will now cost $2.85 throughout the district.

Students will no longer be able to charge unlimited meals to their accounts. Once a student’s meal account has reached a -$10.00 balance, the student will be unable to charge any meals. If a student has reached the spending limit on the account and is unable to purchase a meal, they will be offered a cheese sandwich meal including milk and side of fruit and/or vegetable. They will also be given a notification slip to be taken home requesting that the parent or guardian address the account balance. If a student continues to attempt to purchase meals but is unable to do so due to a negative meal balance, then the Cafeteria Manager will be responsible for contacting the Child Nutrition Supervisor so that a phone call can be made to the parent or guardian. Students who qualify for free meals will be able to receive their meals at no cost, but will be unable to make additional charges for extra items if their accounts have passed the -$10.00 limit. Students who receive reduced price meals will be unable to charge any meals or extra items to their accounts and will be required to pay cash for meals at the time of purchase if their accounts have reached the -$10.00 limit.

The Healthy Snack program will offer elementary students fresh fruits and vegetables on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If a class or group will be out of the school on those days, they will be able to offer the Healthy Snack to the students on a different day of the week to make up for the day that it is missed.

If there are any questions or concerns, please direct them to Tracy Rusch, Child Nutrition Supervisor, at ruscht@fremontschools.net or 419-334-5440.
