Important Notice Regarding Breakfast and Lunch Charging Procedure and Free/Reduced Lunch Applications for 2019-2020
Posted 05/31/2019 12:49PM

The Evergreen Child Nutrition Services Department takes pride in serving nutritious meals daily to our students. We are firm believers that hungry students cannot learn. Under no circumstances do we want a child to go without lunch.We understand that parents are busy and may occasionally forget to pack a lunch or send in money. However the number of students with a negative balance has grown significantly over thelast year. If your child has an outstanding balance please send in your payment before ThursdayJune 14, 2019 to ensure that proper credit is applied to your child's account and they do not start the next year with a negative balance.

To check your student's account balance, make payments, set up low balance email notifications, or track meal transactions, please visit Do be advised that payments made online can take up to 24 hours to process.

IMPORTANT: Beginning August 21, 2019 your students will only be allowed two (2) charges, or carry a negative balance of $7.00, on their lunch account. There will continue to be no extension of credit at the middle schools or for a la carte purchases. Please ensure your child has money on their account or send cash or check for those purchases.

The full meal charging policy will be included for your reference in the parent handbook you receive at the beginning of the school year. Please read it carefully for the full details about meal purchases on credit, returned checks and account balance refund procedures. You are also strongly encouraged to register or update your email address in Parent Portal to receive important messages through School Messenger about your child's lunch account and other District information.

Lunch prices for the 2019-2020 school year will remain the same:

Elementary School Full Price Breakfast is $2.00 and Full Price Lunch is $3.50
