Healthy and enjoyable meals will be prepared for your children every day in the kitchens of the Central Community schools.
If students wish to purchase extra items with the meal, additional money must be in their accounts.
We request parents pay for lunch and breakfast a month in advance. Please send lunch money in an envelope with the student’s name and grade. Each student will have a number coded debit account. The account must be used to pay for lunch, breakfast and extra items. The student’s account will be debited when a purchase is made. The students must have money in the account prior to service. Charging will not be accepted. Change will not be given during lunch.
Note to parents whose families began this school year on free or reduced from the prior year: If you wish to continue to receive meal benefits you must submit a new application . Accounts for free and reduced students will be coded properly in the computer in a manner to avoid overt identification. Free and reduced students must have money for extra items in their accounts if purchase is desired.
Make checks payable to CCSS CNP.
