Lexington ISD has a standard that no child goes without a lunch. This philosophy is practiced by all of the district’s school cafeterias. Cafeteria staff will notify parents of students who do not bring sufficient funds to pay for their school meals on a regular basis.
LISD school students will be allowed to charge a maximum of $30 for breakfast and lunch meals on their accounts. After a student has accrued $30 in charges, they will be given a notice that they have 5 school days to pay all of the accrued charges. The notice will be letters mailed home and/or emails or phone calls to their parents. If after 5 days they have not paid their charges, the student will be allowed to go through serving line and chose a brown bag lunch.
Proper notification will be made to persons responsible for payment. We will send emails to parents before students are given alternative meals. In addition, parents/guardians are able to monitor accounts and put money on their students’ accounts through MySchoolBucks.com. . Please check our web site for more information about MySchoolBucks.
Parents/guardians can also access balance information by contacting the Child Nutrition offices by phone, email, or in person
Students may purchase all seconds and extra food at Middle & High School Cafeteria only if they have money in their accounts or pay with cash.
By federal regulations, all outstanding debt from unpaid student meal accounts cannot be absorbed by our Child Nutrition Department. This must be paid for with other non-federal (local) funds.
Paying for Student Meals
There are several options for parents to pay for their students’ school meals:
- Pay for each meal as student goes through serving line
- Prepay for meals by putting money on students’ meal accounts
- Giving cashiers payment as student goes through serving line
- Dropping payments off in the cafeteria manager’s office or in cafeteria
- Mailing payments to the school at:
