Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.

School Nutrition Meal Price Information
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 was passed through the United States Congress. This Act contained the language for the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Program. As part of this Act, a provision (Section 205) requires Local Education Associations to start gradually increasing the price of a full paid student meal to match the reimbursement rate received for a free student meal.
Meal Payment Methods
PCSD accepts prepayment allowing you to pay into your child's account. We accept cash or checks for the amount of purchase. If paying by cash, put your payment in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and teacher’s name on it. If paying by check, please put your child’s student ID number on the check. Example: (lunch) and 20 meals and child's name written on the check or envelope. You may also choose to pay online via the myschoolbucks.com website.
If an elementary or middle school student does not have money for meals, the student is allowed to charge according to the guidelines listed below.
