PayPams now charges $1.95 for EACH transaction. That’s crazy. So if I budget $30 a month I have to pay $31.95!!! Can’t the school do something about this. They are making enough money with the $1.00 fee now they doubled it. They are making money off feeding our children. Please respond.

I’m going to ask for the 2nd time: Is there a reason that styrofoam trays are used in the school cafeterias? When I was in elementary school, we always used reusable plastic lunch trays that were just washed after lunch every day, which is a lot less wasteful and a lot better for the environment. Based on the research I’ve done, it seems that it would ultimately be cheaper to have reusable lunch trays. Even if it wasn’t, does the school really care that much about having a few extra dollars than saving the environment? How about instead of spending money on electronic signs and 100% unnecessary chromebooks, we spend a few extra dollars to help out the environment?

A.  The food Service department is  self-sufficient and does not get any money from the taxpayers.  Biodegradable trays are very expensive and the department does not have the resources to wash and reuse trays anymore. Please call the food service department with any questions.

Why do students with free or discounted lunch have to get a fruit, vegetable, entree and milk? I feel like it’s a waste of food requiring them to get it when they don’t eat most of it.

A.  It is a federal requirement that all students get a complete meal (including a fruit or a vegetable) in order for the meal to be free or reduced.
