Schools with Community Eligibility Provision
Students attending Eucalyptus, Joshua Circle, Lime Street, and Mesa Grande will NOT need to complete Meal Applications for the 2017-2018 school year. The Community Eligibility Provision allows ALL students at these schools to eat breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE. Households will need to complete an income survey to keep this program. If you have multiple students in your household and any attend a school other than the ones above, you will need to complete a Meal Application. 

The district allows elementary school students to charge up to $16.50 on their student accounts. Middle and high school students are allowed to charge up to $13 on their student accounts. Once students have reached this charge limit, they will be offered an alternate meal until their balance is paid off. Parents and guardians will be notified monthly via phone and/or mail regarding their student's unpaid meal balance.

Blocks on Student Meal Accounts
If a parent or guardian wishes to prevent their student from charging on their student meal account, the parent/guardian may request in writing or via email that a block be placed on a student’s meal account. This block can prohibit purchasing a meal or limit the student to paying cash for meals. Parents or guardians may request to remove this block at any time in writing or via email. Emails may be sent to Please include Student Name, School, and Student ID#.
