Letter to parents and students explaining lunch charges

July, 1, 2021

Attention Parents and Students:

Again this year, students will be able to buy their lunch using their pre-paid account. The lunch deposit will be located outside the office and will be accessible from the Principal’s hallway at 8:00 a.m. Money sent at registration will be deposited and ready the first day of school. Students may deposit money before the start of the school day (between 8:00 – 8:15). However, we encourage them to pay for a week or more, instead of on a daily basis. Money will not be accepted during the lunch period. Students must have money in their account to purchase lunch. Money must be deposited by 9:45 am in order to be used that day at lunch. This will be strictly enforced this school year.

You will be able to make lunch deposits with a check or cash either sent with your student to school, mailed, or dropped of at your student's office

Checks made out to Dee-Mack High School or cash for a week, month, or semester is preferred. Students are to put their: name, ID number, and amount deposited on the outside of the envelope.

for K-6th grades, a regular lunch costs $3.00/day. $15.00/week, $60/month, or $261/semester.  No "doubles" allowed for Primary students)

For 7-12th grades, a regular lunch costs $3.25 including: a main entrée, 2 side items and milk. However, most students buy additional items, the price of these items range from 25 cents up to a $1.25. A student’s standard lunch costs approximately $3.75 with these extras.  If buying just a regular lunch, the cost is $16.25/week, $65/month, or $282.75/semester.

A student who qualifies for “Free or Reduced” and wishes to buy anything other than the main entrée should have money in their account to cover the cost of these extras.
