     CHARGE PARAMETERS FOR MEALS:

    The Ewing school District instituted a new charge policy begining with the 2018-19 school year and will continue for the 2021-2022 school year, that allows K-8 students the priviledge of receiving a meal on a day when they do not have money to pay for the meal.  Since all meals are free the school year 2021-2022, please see below for information on snack purchases if students have a past negative meal account balance. See #3

    Charges from the prior school years are expected to be repaid as soon as possible.  The student meal account system is not intended to be a credit system, and there will be consequences when charge balances ar not repaid. 

    For more details, refer to the new policy that is on the district website, under Board of Education, Board Policies and Regulations. Search for Policy #8550 Unpaid Meal Charges/Outstanding Food Service Charges.

    Please note:

    1) Negative balance emails and/or letters are sent home frequently.  Be sure to monitor the meal account carefully.

    2) Funds may be added to a student's account through payschoolscentral.com, cash/check at the cafeteria, transferred between siblings (call Food Service at 609-538-9800 x7106) or students may pay cash.

    3) Snacks cannot be charged at any school.  When a student has a negative balance, snacks may not be purchased even when the student has cash.

    4) Charging is not permitted at Ewing High School.
