Food Service Information for 2016-2017 School Year
Did you know that money on a student’s meal account will roll over to next year?
- Whatever money is on their account the last day of school will transfer to next year even if your student changes schools within the district. Negative balances will also transfer so it’s important to clear those up before the end of school.
- Seniors – Any money left on a senior’s account will be refunded. After the senior’s account has been reconciled, the refunds are automatically sent by mail in late June.
Free and Reduced meal applications will be available for the 2016-2017 school year on July 11. You will be able to apply for the program online and it will be available at http://foodservices.smsd.org on July 11.
- We encourage you to use the online application process as it will speed up the approval process. If you don’t have access to a computer, you can visit the food service office and apply online there. Paper applications will still be available in our Food Service office at 4401 W. 103rd St. in the Indian Creek Technology Center or at the school. A new application (per family) must be submitted each year. If you receive state assistance, call the food service office at 913-993-9710 before completing an application. Please apply before school starts so you can begin receiving your benefits the first day of school. It can take up to 10 days to process your application and you will be responsible for any meals your student buys before your application is processed.
- Don’t forget – if your child receives free or reduced meals, they are eligible for one breakfast and one lunch per day as part of this benefit. All breakfast and lunch meal choices are available for all students regardless of eligibility status.
The school breakfast menus, lunch menus, and other nutrition information are available on the district’s website at http://foodservices.smsd.org.
