Meal Prices & Payments

Meal Prices
 
The meal paying status of a student is determined through the Meal Benefits Application process.  Students who are not eligible for free or reduced price meal benefits will be responsible for the payment of their meals at the established prices. All student account balances are documented as long as they are enrolled with the Vermilion Parish School Board, and collection procedures will apply as necessary.  The following are the meal prices that have been established by the Vermilion Parish School Board for the 2017-2018 school year:

Meal Charge Policy
 
Students in grades PK – 8 will be allowed to eat a full breakfast or lunch at school if they do not have the adequate payment needed.  Students in grades 9 – 12 must be able to pay for the meal they are purchasing.  School sanctions will be applied at the school site for all unpaid debts which includes denial in participation in non-academic activities (field trips, school fun days, dances, etc.), including graduation ceremonies.  Payments can be made through the online payment system at www.myschoolbucks or a payment plan can be established through the Child Nutrition Program Office.  Student meal balances will be communicated to the parent or guardian through statements that will be sent home two (2) times per month through the student.  Statements are printed, sealed, and given to the homeroom teacher for distribution to the student.  Students are responsible for giving statements to the parent or guardian.  The meal charge policy guidelines are the same for students that have balances but are now attending a CEP school.
