Changes made to the Pickett County School Lunch Program

Submitted
Beginning March 10, 2014 there was a change in the food charging policy to meet federal standards for schools. Every student will still get the full meal that is on the menu. Students will no longer be allowed to charge for extras or ala Carte items. If a student owes money to their account they will not be able to purchase extra items, any money they bring in must first go toward charges. Students that owe money on their lunch account will not be allowed to go on school trips. This policy is to help monitor lunch accounts and to keep students from building up a large debt. In the past we have sent home weekly letters but this alone has not been successful. We will continue to send letters home with students, please ask you child to bring those letters home.
This will not affect students whose accounts are always kept in good standing. For many it will just mean watching accounts more closely. If your child owes a balance you cannot pay in full please attempt to send weekly payments toward the balance. If you have questions contact Diane Elder at 864-3123.
