Please note that in the new food service policy, meals will not be allowed to be charged. Any student failing to keep his/her account solvents as required by the district will be allowed to purchase a meal if the student pays for the meal when it is received.
At least one written warning shall be provided to a student and his/her parent or guardian prior to denying meals for students having spent all funds in their account. If payment of the negative balance is not received within 5 working days, the debt will be turned over to the superintendent or superintendent's designee for collection in accordance with board policy DP. If the debt is not paid within 10 days of mailing the final notice of the negative account balance under policy DP, it shall be considered bad debt for the purposes of federal law concerning unpaid meal charges.
Payments for school meals may be made at the school, district office or online at www.mv330.org.
Students, parents, and guardians of students are encouraged to prepay meal costs.
The district will provide a copy of this unpaid meal charges policy to all households at or before the start of school each year and to families and students that transfer into the district at the time of transfer. The terms of this policy will also be communicated to all district staff responsible for enforcing any aspect of the policy. Records of how and when it is communicated to households and staff will be retained.
