Free & Reduced Lunch Information
Carl Junction R1 School District
Food & Nutrition Department
Carl Junction R1 School District Food & Nutrition Department welcomes you.
We would like to inform you of our meal policy. The Carl Junction School District participates in the National School Breakfast & Lunch Program. We are an offer vs serve district, which means we offer 4 food items at breakfast and the student must take 3 of the 4 food items offered. At lunch we offer 5 meal components and the student must take 3 of the 5 components and 1 component must be either a fruit or vegetable, to qualify for the free/reduced meal program or the full pay school meal pricing.
Reduced breakfast is .30 cents reduced lunch .40 cents
Full pay breakfast is $1.25 full pay lunch K-6 $2.50 7-12 $2.65 Adults $3.35
Students K-4 are given a lunch ID card, students 5-12 have a lunch pin number.
Students are given a free/reduced meal application on the first day of school/or in the enrollment packet. Meal applications may be filled out throughout the school year if needed. Reduced and full pay students are required to maintain a positive meal account. Once a student’s account reaches $5.00 a LOW balance notice is sent home via phone/email. This is a curtesy so that your child’s meal account will not fall into the negative. Once a Junior/Senior High student’s account falls negative, we are not able to offer that student meal services. Students K-6 may charge up to a negative $5.00, but services will not be offered after the negative $5.00 has been reached. Students will have the opportunity to call a parent to make an on-line payment or to bring a meal to the student. Students eligible for free meals, will need to keep a positive balance if they are getting extra milk with a lunch tray, getting milk with a meal from home, or extra portions at the Junior/Senior high level.
