USDA Meal Service Waiver

The U.S. Department of Agriculture extended waivers allowing students a breakfast and lunch option available at no cost. The meals available at no cost are the posted school lunch and breakfast menu. A la carte items are not included as part of the no cost meals. A la carte items will continue to be available for purchase. Meals are also available for pick-up at all schools for anyone 18 years old or younger. Meals available for pick-up are modified for safety and may not reflect the menu served in the cafeteria. It is preferred that children are present for meal pick-up. If the child/student is not with the parent for meal pick up, USDA requires a form of ID. Valid forms of identification may include, but are not limited to, school identification card, child’s passport, government-issued child identification card, or any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record.

Meal pick-up times are as follows:
Middle Schools and Gaines/Transitions: 8:30-9 am
Elementary Schools and K-8 Schools: 9 – 9:30 am
High Schools: 9:45 – 10:15 am

*Gamble Rogers Middle School: 8 – 8:30 am

Meal pick-up locations vary by school. Please contact the Cafeteria Manager at each school for the pick-up location.

The program will begin on September 10, 2020. The longevity of this extension is dependent on funding.

PayPAMS to Replace SchoolPay for Meal Payments

The Food and Nutrition Services Department will no longer be using SchoolPay for prepayments of breakfast and lunch, and have switched back to PayPAMS. Parents/Guardians will need to create a new account, even if you used PayPAMS in the past. Previous accounts are no longer valid. Please see the PayPAMS Brochure (which is also available in Spanish) for information regarding setting up your account, and other information regarding all the benefits of PayPAMS. Any balances that were left on your SchoolPay account for breakfast and lunch (negative or positive) will transfer over to PayPAMS.
