Dear Parents or Guardians:
The Lonoke School District believes good nutrition contributes to the educational success of every child and strives to provide good, nutritious meals every day. The food service staff works hard to ensure quality control and friendly service. Parents and students are asked to cooperate with all policies and procedures in order to ensure continued quality. Any question or comments regarding food service issues may be directed to the Lonoke Public School District Food Service Director Elen Smith, email@example.com at (501)676-7020.
Payment for Meals.
Parents/students may choose to pay for meals daily or in advance (i.e. weekly, monthly, etc...). While it is the intention of the district for every student to eat from the regular menu each day, the district is not able to subsidize meal costs through charges. All meals must be paid for at the point of service or in advance. It is understood that emergencies may arise from time to time and that a student may forget lunch money or the parent/ student may not realize that there is no balance in the meal account (for those paying in advance). For those situations, the district will permit each student to accrue up to five (5) meal charges during each school year. After the fifth meal charge, students will be offered cereal and milk for breakfast and a sandwich and milk for lunch until charges have been paid. Charges may only apply to regular meal (no charges for specialty meals will be permitted).
For your convenience, you may register to use the ezschoolpay online system to track meal balances and pay for school meals. Choose the EZSchoolPay link on the district website for more information.
You can find all this information in your student handbook.
