Attention Parents a reminder from the cafeteria:
Parents, please be mindful of the balance in your child’s account. These accounts are meant to work as a prepay system, therefore we need to keep charges to a minimum.
Those students with free or reduced meal status from last year must renew their application every year. Current benefits will run out on Wednesday September 13th. Please do not wait until the last minute to get your application in. The application must be processed by September 13th, and that process can take up to 10 business days. Online applications can be accessed at http://gwinnett.schoollunchapp.com. If you have already done this process thank you, and you can check the status of your application at http://gwinnett.schoollunchstatus.com. If you allow your benefits to run out on your child’s status automatically, it goes to full pay and you will be responsible for any charges occurred doing the time of no benefits.
If you every have questions about your student’s account you may call Doris Brewer, Cafeteria Manager at 770-736-4512. Thank You
THIS INSTITUTION IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY PROVIDER.
