Meal Applications – Letters and Applications are sent to all parents/guardians at the beginning of the year and to all NEW students throughout the school year or at the request of parent/guardian. These applications will will be completed and immediately returned(preferably the next day) to the cafeteria. Upon receiving the child nutrition employee/designee/and/or director will determine eligibility and a notification letter will be sent to the household. If at any time during the school year, the household income decreases or the household members increase, families my reapply for meal benefits. If a student moves from school to school within the Prentiss County School District, then their meal application may be transferred with the student; however, the school may send another application home with the new student if they have moved and different circumstances apply. The meal application may be completed online.
(To complete meal payment and meal application, you will need to know your child(s) MSIS number. It can be located on report cards and progress reports or the child may know it.)
Paying for Meals – The district’s Point of Sale program allows customers to have an individual account. One may deposit ANY amount of money at any time in their account. It will be subtracted accordingly as meals and extras are purchased. Any account money not spent will be carried forward until it is used. Student who do not choose the advanced Payment Option will pay as they go through the line, but will still have an account that will keep up meal purchases. NO MEAL PAYMENT shall be combined with any other school fee or activity. If paying by check, a separate check to the cafeteria for meal payment will need to be written. If a check or cash is given to the cashier, it will be put into the person’s meal account.

- Verbal Confirmation

Child Nutrition Policies – All meals are served with the intent to aid our students to be fit, healthy, and ready to learn. Our menus are developed and processed through a computerized nutrient analysis, to ensure federal, state, and local rules are being followed. The Child Nutrition Department shall serve only those foods which are components of the Federal USDA school meal patterns and such additional foods as necessary to meet the calorie requirements of the age group being served. With the exception of the milk products a student may purchase individual components of the meal, only if the full meal unit is being purchased. Students who bring a meal from home may purchase milk products only. Breakfast and lunch will be prepared and served to anyone in all schools. Free water is available in every cafeteria, but bottled water is available for purchase.
