Option for al-a-carte (2nd entrée)
Please be aware that the school district is offering an al-a-carte option for students for the 2015-16 school year as part of the National School Lunch Program. This option allows students to return for a second serving of the main entrée. This will be a charged option for all students including free and reduced qualifying students. An example is as follows: when we are serving hamburgers, if a student returns for a 2nd hamburger, he/she will be charged $1.15. Students are allowed to return one time for seconds on any item other than the main entrée and milk without an additional cost.
Every student desiring the al-a-carte option (2nd entrée) will be charged at a rate of $1.15. Students qualifying for free and reduced meals do not qualify for a free or reduced 2nd entrée, thus, having to pay for this option. Please discuss this potential increase in your school lunch costs with your children as to their ability to purchase the 2nd entrée option. If you have questions concerning this memo, please contact Joel McDaniel at the District Office; 322-3175 X1003.
