If a student exhausts their meal account funds, there is a grace period during which the student can charge up to 2 regular meals to his/her account. A student's account may not go negative as a result of an a la carte purchase.
Once the charge limit is reached, if the account is not replenished, the student will receive an alternate meal for 3 days only. Charges must be paid in full before a regular meal is offered.
Low and negative balance letters and emails will be sent to notify the household. It is also recommended that parents and guardians set up low balance reminders on Lunch Money Now.
