    Board Policy on Meal Charging 

    Smart Snacks in School

    We are focused on the health of our school environment. Our school district has established nutrition standards for all snacks sold in school by any entity, including parent/student organizations, teachers, boosters, fundraisers, or the food and nutrition services department. These standards for snack sales are in effect from any time before school through 1/2 hour after school, in accordance with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, the USDA and our district Wellness Policy. Non-compliant foods may be sold from 1/2 hour after school through the end of the day. These standards carefully balance science-based nutrition guidelines with practical and flexible solutions to promote healthier eating on campus. 

    Self Supporting Department: Nutrition Services is self supporting. We depend on prompt payment from parents for their students' meals to maintain the services we provide to the students. The Nutrition Services Fund differs from other budget segments of the school district in that it is an Enterprise Fund. An Enterprise is an operation that is run like a private business. Revenues should meet or exceed expenditures.
