Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.
Student Meal Payments and Charges
All Gilmer County schools cafeterias have computer programs to provide accountability of each student's meals. Parents are encouraged to prepay their child's meals for the week, month or even yearly. Monies for your child's meals should be sent in an envelope with the child's name, homeroom and the amount included for each meal. When writing a check to pay for student meals, be sure to include your child's name and ID# on each check. Do not include ice cream monies, monies for snacks or pictures or anything else with your child's breakfast and lunch payments. A history of the meals your child eats can be provided at any time if there is a need. Parents are requested to keep their child's meal payments current.
