MEAL CHARGE PROCEDURE

The Park Hill School Board promotes healthy, high-quality school meals, recognizing that students need adequate, nourishing food in order to learn, grow, and maintain good health.  

To assure students have access to healthy meals, the district participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs which provide students who qualify with a free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch.   

To accommodate students who purchase school meals, payment options include an online payment system that will take credit and debit cards, or cash and check payments may be made at all school sites.  

The Park Hill School District also provides multiple alerts to notify parents/guardians of their student’s account balance to help ensure they have money available to purchase a school breakfast or lunch:

  • Parents may set an alert on the payment website that will notify them of a low account balance.

  • Automated telephone calls are made weekly to notify parents of a low balance.

  • E-mails are sent weekly to notify parents of a low balance.

  • Students are alerted of a low balance and provided with a payment envelope when purchasing a meal.

  • Students who do not have money on their account or in hand to cover the cost of a meal at the time of service will be permitted to charge a full meal.  Ala carte snacks and beverages may not be charged.  

  • When a charge has occurred the parent/guardian will be notified of the negative balance:

  • Automated telephone calls are made twice weekly to notify parents of a negative balance.

  • E-mails are sent weekly to notify parents of a negative balance.

  • Students are alerted and provided with a payment envelope when charging a meal.

    If charges continue without repayment:

  • Parent/guardian may be contacted by school staff to offer services or assistance as needed.

  • Parent/guardian may be encouraged to submit a Meal Benefits Application if one has not been completed during the current school year. 

District employees are mandated by the state of Missouri to report any instances of suspected abuse or neglect to the Children’s Division (CD) of the Department of Social Services.  District personnel will report to the CD any instance where a student’s arrival at school with no provision for food leads to a reasonable cause to suspect neglect. 

Employees are not allowed to charge meals and must provide payment at the time of service.
