Harmony Public Schools - Alternate Meals Policy

Don't forget, applications can be submitted at any time throughout the school year! For any questions or concerns related to meals, please contact our Child Nutrition Assistant: Mrs. Julianne Srirama jsrirama@harmonytx.org or 281-444-1555 ext. 501 Thank you!

Harmony Public Schools - Alternate Meals Policy

Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of $1.75 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk. Each student is provided a lunch account on to which money may be deposited. Households are also encouraged to create an account in School Café (www.schoolcafe.com) From here, parents may apply for free or reduced price meals, check account balances, make meal payments, set up automatic alerts, and set up automatic payments. If you need your child’s ID number, please call the school and ask one of the Front Office personnel. Payments may also be made in the Building A, Main Front Office during regular business hours of 7:45 am to 2:15 pm using a credit card, check, or money order. Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he /she will be allowed to charge up to our DISTRICT LIMIT of $ -10. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk. If a student is later approved for free meals, they will begin receiving meals immediately. However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance. For more information regarding the meal charge policy, please visit our website at: https://hsthouston.harmonytx.org/


ATTENTION: Students are not allowed to purchase a la carte items if their account has a $0 or negative balance. If they are purchasing a milk, we will allow them one charge as a courtesy. The student and parent will be informed that there must be funds in the meal account for a la carte purchases. The next attempt to purchase a la carte items will be denied until the account shows a positive balance.

The district charge limit applies to reimbursable meals only and not a la carte purchases.

Meal Payments

Online: Log in to your School Café account and make a payment. Please be advised that parents are charged a 5% convenience fee for making a payment through School Cafe. The minimum payment is $20.

At school: Bring a check, credit/debit card, or money order to Building A Main Front Office. The payment will be logged and a receipt will be given to the person making the payment. It can take up to 3 days from the date the front desk takes the payment to the account reflecting that payment.
