Letter to parents and students explaining lunch charges

July, 1, 2015

Attention Parents and Students:

Again this year, students will be able to buy their lunch using their pre-paid account. The lunch deposit will be located outside the office and will be accessible from the Principal’s hallway at 8:00 a.m. Money sent at registration will be deposited and ready the first day of school. Students may deposit money before the start of the school day (between 8:00 – 8:15). However, we encourage them to pay for a week or more, instead of on a daily basis. Money will not be accepted during the lunch period. Students must have money in their account to purchase lunch. Money must be deposited by 9:45 am in order to be used that day at lunch. This will be strictly enforced this school year.

You will be able to make lunch deposits via the parent portal. To ensure lunch is in lunch accounts by 9:45, please do your on-line transactions the night before.

Checks made out to Dee-Mack High School or cash for a week, month, or semester is preferred. Students are to put their: name, ID number, and amount deposited on the outside of the envelope.

You will always be able to pay for lunches online through the Parent Portal.

A regular lunch costs $2.35 including: a main entrée, 2 side items and milk. However, most students buy additional items, the price of these items range from 25 cents up to a $1.25. A student’s standard lunch costs approximately $3.50 with these extras.

Example of Total Lunch Costs including Extras

Weekly cost: $15.00 

Monthly cost: $60.00 

Semester cost: $270.00 

A student who qualifies for “Free or Reduced” and wishes to buy anything other than the main entrée should have money in their account to cover the cost of these extras.

If there are ever any questions regarding what a student has spent or has eaten, please go to the Parent Portal.
