Breakfast/ Lunch Meal Programs

4 months ago

Breakfast/Lunch Meal Programs.

MCSD serves breakfast and lunch each school day.  Eligible children may receive both breakfast and lunch free or at a reduced price. 

Students receive one free or reduced priced meal per day.  Any additional meals will be at full pay and may not be charged. 

Meal substitutions or alterations are available for students with medical conditions.  No substitution or alteration will be made until a current year medical doctors request has been submitted to your child’s school. 

The food service department of the Moffat County School District complies with all federal guidelines for a reimbursable meal.  Current guidelines require that meals contain no more that 30% total fat, 10% saturated fat and contain no Trans Fat.  51% or more of grains offered in our meals are whole grain.  Student meals contain an assortment of dark green and red/orange vegetables, beans and peas, a limited amount of starchy vegetables, fresh and canned fruit, reduced fat and low sodium entrees. Both non-fat chocolate and 1% regular milk are offered daily.  

New to Craig Middle School this year will be a self-serve salad bar.  Snack items will no longer be offered at the middle school site, however, milk may be purchased.  The middle school will again offer a  2nd choice of entrée each day as well as a limited amount of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches daily. 

Parents and guardians, please keep your student’s accounts current.  Elementary school sites will send home weekly bills for any accounts that owe $5.00.  Middle and high school students, will be informed by the cashier when they have a negative balance on their account.  Middle and high schools students will receive bills monthly for any meal money owed.  

Charges will remain on student accounts until they have been paid.  Please contact Judy Baker or Karma Willbanks if you have any questions, or need help in completing a meal application form. 

Students who qualified for the program the prior school year are only eligible for a limited time to receive meals in the new school year.  If you have not received a letter from this department, stating that your household qualifies for the 2015-2016 school year from a direct certification process or approved current year application, you will need to fill out an application and submit it. Any meal charges accumulated between the lapse of the prior year eligibility and current year approval, your household will be required to pay.  

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT 
IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR HOUSEHOLD TO BE CONSIDERED FOR FREE OR REDUCED BOOK FEES, CLASS FEES, SPORT/ATHLETIC FEES AND DRIVERS EDUCATION FEES, YOU MUST HAVE AN APPROVED MEAL APPLICATION FORM ON FILE PRIOR  TO SEPTEMBER 18, 2015. YOUR HOUSEHOLD QUALIFICATION MUST BE IDENTIFIED PRIOR TO PARTICIPATION IN ANY SPORT.  SPORT/ATHLETIC FEES WILL NOT BE WAIVED AFTER THE SPORT/ ATHLETIC PROGRAM HAS BEGUN.  HOUSEHOLDS WHOSE CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR MAY APPLY AFTER SEPTEMBER 18, 2015 BUT FEES FOR PROGRAMS WILL NOT BE WAIVED PRIOR TO THE DATE OF APPROVAL ON THE APPLICATION FORM.
