BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PROGRAMS

 

To encourage and enable schools to provide students with nutritious food and beverage choices that will enhance learning and promote healthy behaviors that can be maintained throughout life, nutrition standards for foods sold, served and/or distributed to students during the school day have been established by the WVDE. These standards are available on the WVDE website at:  http://wvde.state.wv.us/policies/p4321.1.pdf.  Every child in school needs to have nutritious meals in order to achieve his or her potential.  A growing body of research establishes that a hungry child is less able to process the information provided and is less likely to be attentive to the lessons being taught.  Research shows that healthy eating, proper nutrition and regular physical activity result in students who have increased standardized achievement test scores; improved attendance; reduced tardiness; and improved academic, behavioral and emotional functioning.  For many students, the nutritious breakfast at school is essential. The WV Feed to Achieve Act recognizes that an effective school breakfast program is not an interruption of the school day; it is an integral and vital part of the school day.  Starting with the 2015 school year, all schools are to offer an innovative breakfast program that not only offers breakfast before school starts, but also provides another breakfast service after the bell.  Our school will provide breakfast (insert your school’s breakfast schedule here).   Students are only to eat breakfast at one of the meal times and the price for breakfast is the same for either service.  

 

 

 

Moorefield Intermediate School will be implementing a new provision to select schools participating in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for school year 2016-2017.  Your child is eligible to receive breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household.  Your child will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.  Extra milk will still be available for purchase at $0.25 each.

 

 

 

Parent/guardians are still responsible for any meal charges owed from prior school years.  If your child transfers to a non CEP school then you will be responsible for any meal charges.   Use our FREE Online website to manage your child’s(ren’s) account at https://www.parentonline.net, there are no additional costs to use the website.  View meals eaten, payments received and pay by credit or debit card, if you choose.   Please contact the school cafeteria manager if you have questions regarding charges on your bill.  

 

Hardy County policy on Collection and Billing states in part:  A breakfast/lunch bill is sent home with each child at the first of the month. Payment in full is expected by the due date on the bill.  A bill is considered delinquent if not paid in full within 30 days of the due date and parents will be notified by mail.  The collection of accounts will be pursued through the Magistrate Court.   Not providing appropriate funds for a student to eat or sending a bagged lunch, may be interpreted as child neglect by the authorities.  The complete Collection and Billing policy is provided in Hardy County File: EDD.

 

Hardy County Schools uses a point of service program for recording student meal charges either by manually entering the student’s ID# into the program or by taking a scan of the student’s finger to record the meal.  The scanned image is NOT a finger print, and in fact no print can be recreated from the encrypted points.  Parents will be notified if the scanner is being used at your school and those having concerns can contact the School Nutrition Director for more information.  If a parent/guardian wishes to opt out of the scanner for their child(ren) then they should send notice in writing to the school’s Principal.

 

Guests who wish to eat breakfast or lunch at school must first sign in at the office to obtain a visitor pass. Adult guests must have the exact change available to pay on-line at the point of service since the cafeteria managers do not maintain a cash drawer and will not be able to make change.  Breakfast - Adult $3.25    Lunch – Adult  $4.25,
