PPS Lunch Account Charge Policy
Students whose accounts have a charge of $10 for insufficient funds will no longer be allowed to charge. Students who have a negative balance of $10 will be given a verbal notice and the lunchroom secretary will attempt to contact the parent/guardian by phone, email and/or letter. These students will receive an alternative meal of cereal, non-flavored milk and fruit for breakfast. For lunch, students will receive an alternative meal consisting of a sandwich, non flavored milk, and fruit or vegetable. This meal is a low-cost reimbursable meal and the student’s account will be charged as such. An alternative meal will be served until payment is received, including partial payment, or upon approval for a free or reduced-price meal. The child nutrition manager will attempt to make arrangements for a student to receive an alternative meal in a manner which will reduce the possibility of embarrassing the student.
