Changes in School Lunch Program


Our schools are making a great effort to make our students healthier by serving more fruits and vegetables, offering low-fat milk and reducing fat and calories and sodium in school meals. School meals are the most affordable way for children to eat at school.
Parents must complete a new Free/Reduced lunch application each year. If we do not receive a new application after 30 days they will eat at full price. If your child eats free/reduced this includes only one complete meal at breakfast and at lunch. If they want seconds they must pay for them. This year our prices are not changing. The prices are as follows:

Breakfast at K-8
Reduced- $.30, Full-$1.10

Lunch at K-8
Reduced-$.40, Full -$1.70

Breakfast at PCHS
Reduced- $.30, Full- $1.10

Lunch at PCHS
Reduced- $.40, Full- $1.95

If a student owes any money they are not allowed to charge for extras at lunch. Every student will still get a tray. Also, 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. We will continue to send letters home with students at least twice a month, please ask your child to bring those letters home.
If you have questions contact Lisa Cummings at 864-3123. Lunch applications may be mailed to Pickett County Board of Education, Attn: Lisa Cummings, 141 Skyline Drive, Byrdstown, TN 38549.
