FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How do I apply for Free or Reduced Price Meals?
You are welcome to submit a Free and Reduced Meal application at any time during the school year. Use the links below to either apply online or print a paper application which your child can return to their front office. Copies may also be obtained from any front office. Prior year benefits expire in October of each school year so you must reapply each year. Families will be expected to pay for any meals their student takes and negative balances will not be cleared if/when approved for meal benefits.
Q: How much does lunch cost for Full Pay and Reduced students?
- Spitler Elementary and Hart Middle School are eligible for the Community Eligibility Provision and all students may have lunch at no cost!
- High (Grades 9-12): $2.35
- Reduced lunches are $.40
Q: How can I make deposits and find out about my student account balance?
Deposits can be made by sending cash or checks to school. We recommend sending deposits in an envelope with your student’s full name clearly written on it. You may also make deposits online! Create an account online using your student ID number at http://www.sendmoneytoschool.com.
Q: What happens if my student meal account becomes negative?
Students will NEVER be made to go hungry. However, families are expected to pay for any meals taken or to apply for meal benefits if they are unable to afford full price meals. You will be notified via email or letters are sent home if your account goes below zero. Students with negative balances will be given a cheese sandwich, fruit and milk which will ensure they do not go hungry.
