A Message from the Cafeteria
Parents & Guardians,
Frequently asked Questions at EOY:
What does “Last Day to Charge” on Lunch Accounts mean?
It does not mean you cannot use the accounts, it means it is the last day to go into the negative on Lunch accounts. Since you add money to the card/account it is a debit card/account, you are not actually charging till you run out of money that was on the account…
Another one is where does the money go at EOY?
All accounts roll over to the next year, meaning any money left on accounts will be waiting for you when school starts next year. Even if you which schools as long as it is still an LISD school your account stays the same. Which includes 5th grade going to Arbor Creek. Whatever their balance is positive or negative will be waiting for them on that first day at Arbor Creek.
I recommend loading up accounts before the EOY (end of year), this way it is one less thing to have to remember on the first day of school. This is especially important for 5th graders going on to Arbor Creek, there are no negative account balances allowed in middle school period…. A cheese sandwich on the first day of school would not be fun….
So Please Please think about putting money on your 5th graders account before the last day of school, then their guaranteed lunch on that first day no matter what!
Also if they have a negative balance Please see me about clearing that up before school lets out June 5th. That way it doesn’t follow them to 6th grade. Thanks!!!
Reminder: The last day students can charge a meal without money on their account is Thursday, May 21st. Visit the Child Nutrition website (www.lisd.net/childnutrition) to learn how you can enroll in low balance e-mail notifications before the end of the school year!
Thank you in advance for taking care of this matter for our Kids!!
Count your Blessings not your Worries..
I've updated my Symbaloo. Check out it out. Click on any tile and it will take you to the website. You can make your own, too! Share new sites with me.
What did you do today? How to talk about their day with your child this week:
I will begin sending home items from class, so talk with your child about why we made this particular item. Encourage them to tell you who they played with and what was the favorite station or center this week. I have Orbie Slime and it is a real hit. Let me know if you want the recipe. :)
