Lennox School District 41-4
Serving the Communities of Chancellor, Lennox and Worthing, South Dakota
The school-operated lunch program is open to serve students breakfast and hot lunch at a reasonable price. Students may bring sack lunches if they wish. A la carte is available for junior high and high school students at an additional price. The schools in the Lennox School District are on a computer system (Infinite Campus) for keeping records of lunch charges. All students in the family are under one account; however, each student has their own lunch ID number. This number is used as they go through the lunch line to purchase their meal. A photo of the student shows on the screen as their number is entered to assure the identity of the student. No student's lunch status is shown on the computer screen when their number is entered (free, reduced or paid).
You can check your student’s lunch account and make payments on the school website. Parents will be able to make a payment online if or send a payment with their student. Infinite Campus is in sync with the rest of the district, so, parents will be able to make multiple payments, for example; you can make a deposit in your lunch account, pay off a shop bill, or pay a computer fee in one transaction. The lunch program is a pre-payment program, not a credit program. It is the parent's responsibility to maintain a positive balance in their child's account. Upon request, a refund of account balances will be given if the family is leaving the district; or, if the graduating student is the last student in the family.
Free and reduced price meals are available for families who need assistance. You can pick up a form at any of the school offices or print a form from the school website. If you have received a Notice of Direct Certification for free meals, you do not need to complete an application. If you qualified for free or reduced prices the previous year, your must re-apply again each school year BEFORE October 1st or your account will switch back to full price. You can apply at any time during the school year if your income or family size changes. If you qualify for either status, only the main meal is at a free or reduced price. The Food Service Department is more than willing to answer any questions you may have when filling out an application.
The school offers 5 food components: milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, and meat/meat alternates. Students are allowed to decline 2 of the 5 required food components, but ,must select at least ½ cup of either a fruit or vegetable to be charged the meal price. If the student does not have a 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable they will be charged al a carte prices.
The school will make substitutions to the regular meal pattern for children whose disability restricts their diet. A Special Diet Request Form must be filled out and signed by a physician. This form can be picked up at any of the school offices or printed from the school website. A new Special Diet form must be turned in every year.
Unpaid Lunch Account Policy:
E-mails or telephone calls are sent out daily for balances of $15 or less. When your lunch account is $0, the food service bookkeeper will contact the parents. Please check your account often to keep a positive balance at all times.
If your balance is $0 to -$20, your student will still be able to have the reimbursable meal. 7-12 grade students will NOT be able to charge any snacks or al a carte items at this point. When the balance is more than -$20, K-12 students will receive an alternate meal until a deposit is made into their lunch account.
Pay it Forward:
Lennox has a "Pay it Forward" lunch account. This is an account in which anyone can make a donation. When seniors graduate, if they are the last one in the family, they can be reimbursed for the account balance or donate it to the Pay it Forward account. With administration and teacher input, the Director of Food Service and the Food Service Bookkeeper will decide where the most need is for disbursement of the Pay it Forward account.
If you have any questions please call Robbin Symens or Kristi Abbas.
