Polices & Guidelines
Money can be deposited into a students account at any time by cash or check in any amount. For a small service fee you can now pay for your child's meals on line at http://www.mymealtime.com/ with your MasterCard or Visa. When using the pay on line feature, the minimum amount that can be deposited into a students' account is 25.00, and the service fee is 4.9% of the total amount you charge. Any money left in a students' account at the end of the school year will stay in the account ready for use in the next school year. Since accounts are set up using the student ID#, account balances follow students as they change schools within the district. A new benefit of the MealTime pay on line service is the ability to check the balance of the account at any time that is convenient to you by simply logging on! You can also view what and when your students have eaten.
Free and Reduced Meals
Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced price meals. Students in all grades who qualify for reduced price meals will receive breakfast at no charge. Students in preschool through 5th grade who qualify for reduced meals will also receive lunch at no charge, and those in grades 6-12, the reduced price is $.40. Applications for Free and Reduced priced meals can be obtained at your child's school. Parents are responsible for the full price of all meals until their application has been processed and a determination has been made. We do our best to process the applications as timely as possible; usually in a couple of days however, the beginning of the school year can take as long as 10 business days from the time the Food and Nutrition office receives the application. A determination letter will be mailed to everyone who applies to inform them of the determination.
Please note that a new application must be completed for every new school year.
The kitchen staff takes food safety very seriously. We have monthly training on both food and physical safety for our staff. We do this because we want to serve food that is safe in a kitchen that is safe for our staff and our students.
To support the training and keep safety in our daily habits, we perform Food Safety and Physical Safety audits in every kitchen every month. In addition to those internal audits, the El Paso County Health Department performs annual audits in the schools in Fountain and the US Army performs multiple audits in the schools on Fort Carson.
