Pre-Paid Meal System, Delinquent Lunch Accounts & Collection Policy

This policy was created to establish consistent meal charging and collection procedures districtwide. The goals of this policy are:

  • To treat all students with dignity and respect.
  • To establish practices which are age-appropriate.
  • To encourage parents to pre-pay for all meals.
  • To promote self-responsibility of the student.
  • Payment in advance for meals enables the District to achieve these goals.


Every effort will be made to ensure a positive cafeteria experience, allow students to receive the nutrition they need to stay focused during the school day, to prevent the identification of students with insufficient funds to pay for meals and maintain the financial integrity of the non-profit school food service account. Payment in advance for meals enables the District to achieve these goals.

Pre-paid Meal System: The Cabool School’s meal accounting system is a pre-paid system. Parents or guardians deposit money into their child’s account before meals are served. Payments can be made daily, weekly, monthly, or annually. In addition to using cash and checks, parents can also pay online with their credit/debit cards. It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure that money is in the account or a home prepared meal is sent to school with their child.

Emergency Meal Service: The Board of Education acknowledges that on occasion, families may encounter special circumstances. In such cases, the child’s statement of need shall be accepted and food will be made available based upon on a site administrative decision.

Repayment for Meal Charges and Bad Checks: Federal guidelines prohibit the Food Services Department from writing off bad debts as a result of charged meals. Every effort will be made to collect for unpaid meals.

Program Limitations: Students with negative account balances can only purchase regular breakfast and lunch meals. À la carte (2nd or extra) items cannot be charged.

  • When a student’s lunch bill reaches a -$5.00 limit, a letter notifying the parent/guardian of the current lunch bill owed will be mailed to the home address weekly until the lunch account is paid.
  • When a student’s lunch bill reaches a -$20.00 limit, an email and a phone call directly to the parent/guardian will be placed by the Food Service Director in addition to the letter. The Food Service Director will make every effort to work with the parent/guardian to bring the lunch account current. Payment arrangements may be made.

When a student’s lunch bill is over the -$20.00 limit and the parent/guardian is unable to be reached, the student may be restricted from attending or participating in extracurricular activities including but not limited to:

  • Sports
  • Field trips
  • School Functions
  • Dances, Prom, Plays
  • Clubs
  • Graduation Activities
