Lunch Balance Change

What is the new Negative Balance Policy for lunch?

We talked to Michele McCoy, the head of the Lisbon Community School Lunchroom. Michele said, “The Negative Balance Policy is a new policy that has been implemented by the school board to try and manage the negative balance accounts that we have in our school meal accounts.  If we keep the negative balances to a minimum then our lunch and breakfast prices can remain low.

Has the negative balances become a big problem?

Michele also said that the negative balances, “have gotten to be a big problem and so what the policy says is anybody that has a negative fifty dollar balance their child, ONLY 7-12, will get an alternate meal. The child will be provided with a sack lunch containing a soy butter sandwich, a fruit, and a milk until the balance is paid completely. Now with that being said the ak-6 grade students will be able to go through the lunch line. The reason the board adopted the policy this was us because the school board and other community members do not feel like a small child can make their own lunch and bring it to school. We never want a child to go hungry”.

How can parents check their account balances?

We have our School Dining System and any parent or guardian has access to it 24/7 and they have a ID code and password to use it. With this information they are able to login into the system when they need to. You can pay online through the account, bring the payments into the school and turn them into any offices or Michele McCoy, or you can send it to the school with your child.

Book For A Buck

In upcoming news, a group of Lisbon teachers have started a program to allow kids to create libraries at their homes for a cheap price. Book for a Buck was created by multiple teachers throughout the school you can find this “shop” in the library.

Health Tip

Here is a health tip from nurse Julie. Cold and flu season is here. If you need to sneeze or cough make sure that you cover your mouth with your arm or a tissue. Make sure that you wash your hands, but if you don’t have access to soap and water use hand sanitizer. Nurse Julie wants everyone to know that washing with soap and water is better than any other form of washing your hands. Drink extra fluids and get a lot of rest. If you have a temp of 100 degrees or more, and are coughing a lot Nurse Julie says you need to stay home and get some rest. Remember, gel in and gel out!
