During the meal service in the cafeteria the distribution of commercial foods in their advertised containers (i.e., Subway, McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Popeye's, etc.) is prohibited. Foods may stay in their wrapping;however they must be put in a noncommercial container or bag. In addition, students may only eat the food provided to them through the school food service program or the food provided to them from their parents/sponsors. Food may not be brought into the cafeteria to share with a child's classmates or other children. This prohibits the practice of bringing cupcakes or other food items into the cafeteria during meal service to share with students to celebrate a student's birthday or other celebrations.
Food Allergies are serious health risks. Please coordinate with the respective school nurse and provide a physician's slip explaining the food allergies your child may have, so that appropriate accommodations can be made.
We ask that you fund your child's meal account at least a week in advance. You may make payments:
If a child is absent or brings a meal from home, credit is maintained for those days. Although a student may normally bring lunch from home, it is a good idea to have a little money deposited in the school meal account for an emergency breakfast and/or lunch. Money that is not used at the end of the school year will be carried forward to the next school year. If your child is moving to a different school on Fort Stewart, his or her account balance will travel with him or her.
In the event the parent pays in advance with a check on an account that has insufficient funds, the school will notify the parent by letter and phone call. A $10.00 service charge will be added to the check total. The parent/sponsor will make cash payment to the Cash Clerk's Office. Further checks will be accepted only if the delinquent check and service charge are paid within 30 days of parent notification.
Charging meals must be kept to a minimum and used as a last resort only. The following policy will be used for student charges:
