LUNCH PROGRAMStudents at OLHMS have an option each day to either bring a bag lunch from home or take advantage of the hot lunch program at school. A hot lunch program is offered to all students through Arbor Food Service. The student ID card serves as a debt card for all lunch purchases. No cash exchange is accepted in the cafeteria.
Students who purchase hot lunch with their ID cards must maintain a positive account balance in order to purchase food/drink. Students must activate lunch accounts with at least a $20.00 payment and replenish lunch accounts using a minimum cash or check payment of at least $20.00 when needed. Checks should be made payable to School District 123. The school is not responsible for producing change or will not accept any amount of money less than $20.00 to credit lunch accounts. This is necessary in order to efficiently manage student account balances and reduce wait time during lunch periods. Lunch account payments can be made during regular school hours in the school office, in the hallway outside the cafeteria each day during lunch periods, or electronically via epay. www.illinoisepay.com
Students are responsible for keeping track of their own lunch account information. Lunchroom computers display current account information each day when ID cards are scanned. Current balance information is also available in the main office. No written reminders or notices will be printed regarding low account balances. Students may be denied hot lunch service if account balances do not carry adequate funds.
Cafeteria rules are similar to those of the classroom. Appropriate behavior and manners are expected. Listed below are a few guidelines specific to cafeteria usage:
* Students are to only use their own ID card to purchase their own lunch.
* Students may not buy lunches for each other or borrow food/drink.
* Glass containers are not allowed.
* No carbonated beverages will be allowed.
* No fast food lunches/food deliveries will be allowed.
* Birthday food/treats are not to be distributed.
* Any bag lunches brought to school must be stored in a locker until lunchtime.
