It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that parents are fully aware of the policy and procedure adopted for families whose line of credit exceeds $10.00, and to remind families when parents fail to pay their negative balance notices.  The procedures below outline Dummerston School’s charging procedures:
1.  Students who are unable to pay for a meal may charge the cost of the meal for that day.  It is expected that these charges will be paid as soon as possible.  Charges should not exceed $10.00, cumulatively.
2.  Students, who are unable to pay for a meal, but have already charged the maximum allowable charge, may receive a meal consisting of a sandwich, a carton of milk and a piece of fruit.
3.  Families who exhibit a continuing pattern of inability to pay for meals will be encouraged to apply for free/reduced lunch status.  Our Counselor and/or School Nurse will work with families to facilitate this process.
4.  Dummerston School will make every effort to encourage families to pay any outstanding balances prior to the end of the year.
5.  The Principal will be notified of lunch charges that have not been repaid in a timely manner.  These charges will become a part of the student’s cumulative indebtedness, which follows the student after they leave Dummerston School.  Parents will be notified throughout the school year as to the amount of money owed and are encouraged to settle the unpaid amount as soon as possible.
