Nutrition Services

Welcome to LaPoynor ISD Child Nutrition Department

Our Staff is committed to your child’s health and happiness!

 

LaPoynor ISD is contracted with the Texas Department of Agriculture and The USDA through the National School Lunch and Breakfast program. Our goal is to provide the most nutritious meal possible to our students while complying with state and federal regulations

 

 

We are an offer versus serve district, which means, students may choose what goes on their tray. Meals are then qualified at the register to determine if they are a “reimbursable meal”, (charged as free, reduced or full payment), or if the items are to be charged a la carte.  For breakfast to qualify as a reimbursable meal, the student must choose 3 of the 4 items offered. One of the items MUST be a ½ cup of fruit or fruit juice, or they can choose all four items.  For lunch, the student must choose 3 of the 5 food items, one item MUST be a ½ cup fruit or ½ cup vegetable, or they may choose all five.

Pricing is as follows:

 

                             Breakfast – all grades …………………………………………. $1.70

                             Breakfast – Adults ………………………………………………. $2.00

                             Lunch PreK – 5th grade ………………………………………… $2.00

                             Lunch 6th – 12th grade ………………………………………….. $2.15

 

                            Lunch Adults ……………………………………………………….… $3.25

 

Charge Policy: students are allowed to charge up to $20 for a reimbursable meal.  This is not a charge account, but a convenience for both student and parent.  Statements are sent when the balance reaches a negative $9.  Once the balance exceeds $20, students will be offered an alternate meal.

 

Payment Options:  You may pay your child’s account at any campus, by mail or online.  Lunch Money Now is an online program that tracts your child’s meal purchases.  You can print your student’s meal history, set up low balance alerts that come directly to your email account and even add money to their accounts online for a small service fee.  This service has been popular with students and parents alike because of its convenience.  It saves time and reduces the need to handle cash.  With the help of Lunch Money Now, LaPoynor ISD is ready to service you!  All you need is their student ID, (students who are in grades 3rd and higher already know this number), the last four digits of their social security number and their birth date in the following format, MM/DD/YYY.
