Parents will be notified when their child’s meal account reaches a negative $10.00. Negative account reminders are also sent through Tuesday envelopes, via email, and by phone when the account exceeds the limit. We cannot tell your student they owe money however, we can give them account information if they ask. Parents are encouraged to follow their students account balance by logging into MySchoolBucks.com or phoning our office. With the new “No Lunch Shaming” law in place, no student can be denied a meal or be notified by staff they owe money. Please contact our Food Service Department at (209)257-7791 if you have questions about your students account balance.
