If your child is a part of the free or reduced lunch program and they choose to pack one day, please remember milk is with the lunch only. They may purchase milk for $0.50.
Free and Reduced Program
All students will receive a free and reduced lunch form. High School student will receive theirs with their schedules and Elementary students will be given theirs the first day of school. Forms are available in school offices throughout the school year.
The state of Ohio approves some families before the start of the school year. If you receive a letter in August approving your child/children, you do not need to fill out a free and reduced form for the school. If you have children living in your household not listed by the state on the preapproved form, please call 419-562-7828 ext 201 to have them placed on your household list.
All information received for this program is confidential.
If your child/children were on a free or reduced lunch last year they will continue on their free or reduced lunch until September 26th. If you did not receive a letter of approval in August or sent a new form in for approval by that date, your students will be removed from the program until a new form is submitted.
If your child/children receive a free lunch, they are approved to have their school fees waived. You will receive a fee waiver form along with your approval and this form must be signed, dated and returned to the school office. The school cannot waive your child’s school fees unless this form is completed and returned to the school.
Tracking System for High School Only
All High School students are fingerprinted for the school lunch program. Their print is scanned at the end of the serving line to access their account. The software used, forms an algorithm, a series of numbers and characters, which is stored for identification. It will not store the actual fingerprint and once the algorithm is set, the fingerprint is erased. Only your student will have access to their account which will enable you to keep better records. If for any reason you do not want your student to have his/her fingerprint scanned, we will make other arrangements for the use of their account, but will not be responsible if the account is used improperly.
The Elementary and High School are offered a nutritious meal every day and USDA guidelines are required per the National School Lunch Program. Elementary students will have 5-6 entrée choices everyday as stated on the menu which is posted on the school website. Students must take a fruit or vegetable or both to be considered a meal. The High School has two lines for lunch service, both line will be offering the same lunch options to speed up the lunch service. Students must have money in their accounts to purchase any ala carte items. A list of items and their prices are available.
Lunch money is deposited each morning before the start of classes. Elementary students deposit their money in the classroom and it is picked up at 9:15 each day. Please print clearly their first and last name and amount in their envelope.
High School students exit their bus or car and enter the cafeteria. Cashiers are there to assist them in depositing their lunch money. We will take money at lunch if you are late, but depositing during the lunch line causes the line to slow and students must wait. We have a 30 minute lunch period, so please ask your student to make their deposit before going to class. There is a no charging policy for the High School. The state requires we allow Elementary students to charge and they may charge up to $ 12.50 only. Please check your child’s account to assure they have a positive balance at all times. You can do this by going on line to MealTime, send a written request to my office or call 419-562-7828 ext 201. If I am not in my office, please leave your child’s full name and a working phone number. I will return your call as soon as I return.
Your student’s account may be found on line with the MealTime program. If you do not have an account set up, you may do so through the Wynford website. If you have an account from the past year, you should not have to change anything to access that account. If you are creating a new account, you will need your child’s ID number which you can get by calling 419-562-7828 ext 201. You may check their account balance, deposit online and they have a low balance warning available through e-mail
