Purchasing School Meals
PPS Nutrition Services takes pride in providing students with delicious, high quality, nutrient-rich meals to support learning. Under no circumstance do we want a child to go without a meal. It is the responsibility of parents or guardians to either prepay for school meals, provide a breakfast/lunch from home, or complete a meal application to receive free or reduced meal benefits. We understand families have busy schedules which is why we make every effort to communicate with families about the status of their student’s meal account balance. We are an opt out service. If you do not want your child to participate in school meals, please provide a written statement to our department.
Each student has a personal debit account linked to their PPS student identification (ID) number. A student’s identification number can be found on their fall registration form. Students enter their ID number on a key pad at the register to purchase a meal. Students will only be able to purchase one breakfast and/or one lunch per school day. While additional entrees are not available for purchase, all school lunches come with unlimited fruits and vegetables. Milk can be purchased separately for $0.50 each.
