Pulaski County Special School District participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture and is held to a high standard of accountability, good nutrition and safety. Eating breakfast and lunch will enable students to be better prepared to learn in the classroom. There are 5 ways to provide for your student(s)
Will your student(s) be bringing a meal each day? Plan a nutritious meal that’s well balanced with fruits, vegetables, source of protein, bread and milk or juice.
Your student(s) may want to buy their meals in the school cafeteria and then plan to send money each day with your student(s). Reduced price and full paying students may pay the cashier at meal time or go to the cafeteria before school starts and pay for meals in advance.
You may pay by check. If you have more than one child in the same school, send one check for all students and specify name, grade, teacher and the amount you want on each child’s account.
The differences between the adult and student prices are based on the USDA regulations. Students are subsidized for the meals and adults are not.
Charge Policy and Collections Procedure
We must limit the occurrence of charging for meals to no more than three (3) charges to your student’s account in Elementary, (3) charges to your student’s account in Middle Schools and NO charging in High School. It is the policy of Pulaski County Special School District to allow students to charge meals only on occasion when money is unavailable and the student would otherwise have to miss meal service. This is a courtesy extended to the student and should not occur on a regular basis. Money owed to the district from meal charging will be carried over to the following year, and can be turned over for further collections. Any student denied meal service due to excessive charges will be encouraged to apply for free or reduced-price meals.
