MEAL ACCOUNT DEPOSITS
Money can be sent in cash or check form to the schools. Please make checks out to "(school name) Cafeteria."
It must be sealed in an envelope with the students name and amount enclosed.
The envelopes must be put in the money deposit boxes located in the cafeterias PRIOR to lunch service.
We will not be providing change so please send the exact amount you want deposited to your students meal account.
Depositing money BEFORE lunch service is optimal for quickening efficiency to get all the students through the lunch lines quickly and in their seats enjoying their meals. Less time in the lines and more time sitting and eating is our commitment and goal we continue to encourage with our students.
The third option is to deposit funds on the accounts through paypams.com with a credit card.
Thank you for working together with us to keep students and faculty safety as our number one priority.
MEAL CHARGE POLICY
The following charge policy was approved by the Tullahoma City BOE.
School meal programs that allow meal charges must have a written policy defining the guidelines for charging meals. Uncollected charges that are deemed bad debt must be paid from a source other than school nutrition program federal funds.
1. Faculty in Tullahoma City Schools may not charge or eat at no cost.
2. Students are not allowed to charge ala carte items.
3. The Board of Education will reimburse the school nutrition program for unpaid charges.
4. Staff will work with student and family to try and give financial assistance through Free and Reduced Application Process as well as searching the database for Directly Certified students on the State database.
5. Students have a limit to the amount of $100 to charge to their meal accounts.
We have four schools in our district that qualify as Community Eligibility Provision schools (CEP) based on their poverty levels. We are happy to be able to continue feeding the students at these schools at no cost for breakfast and lunch. These schools are East Middle School, East Lincoln Elementary, Jack T Farrar and Bel-Aire Elementary. If you have students attending these schools, you will not need to fill out an application for Free and Reduced Priced Meals because all meals are free.
Robert E Lee, West Middle and THS did not qualify and will resume their Free/Reduced and Paid meal status. Applications for free and reduced priced meals will be sent home with every child at these schools the first week of school. Every child that enrolls at these schools throughout the school year can apply at any time. Applications are available in the school office, this website on the free/reduced application/nutrition information link and at the administration building. Only one application is necessary per HOUSEHOLD. You can apply at any time in the school year. Meal pricing is available at each school and in the previous tab labeled Food Prices.
Our staff will continue to work with students and families as well by searching for Directly Certified students on the Tennessee State database each month.
The Tullahoma City Schools Nutrition Program vision is to feed children nutritious and delicious meals, one day at a time.
