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 offered an alternative meal.
Alternative meals will be: Lunch- a cheese or peanut butter & jelly sandwich, fruit, & milk Breakfast- juice or milk and a grain item.
Proper notification will be made to persons responsible for payment. We will send out emails with our current software system to alert parents/guardians about low or negative balances. 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.
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.
There are several options for parents to pay for their students’ school meals:
