In the event that students lose their lunch money, they may charge through the cafeteria. Credit will not be extended past three charges for students in grades PK – 5 and one charge for students in grades 6 – 12. The money is due the following school day. Students owing lunch charges will be given an alternate meal consisting of a cheese sandwich and milk until payment has been received.
