MEAL CHARGE POLICY

  • PURPOSE:

    The purpose of this policy is to notify families of the Romoland School District Nutrition Services Meal Charge Policy. The Meal Charge Policy is enacted when a student does not have money on their meal account. The goal of the policy is to provide students with a meal option regardless of the status of their meal account.

    POLICY:

    • If a student is unable to pay for their meal at the time of purchase, the student will be allowed to charge a meal to their account.
    • There is no limit to the number of meals a student can charge, however, if the dollar amount charged exceeds $10, Nutrition Services will contact the family of the student regarding the student’s account.
    • If Nutrition Services is unable to reach the student’s family after three attempts, they will partner with the principal at the student’s school for further assistance to contact the family and inform them of the outstanding amount due.
    • If a student is without funds on a consistent basis, Nutrition Services will investigate the situation and take further action as needed. If a financial hardship exists, the household will be encouraged to apply or reapply for free or reduced-price meals for their child. Online meal applications are available at www.EZmealapp.com
