Meal account vs. General account

Meal account vs. General account! This is one of the most common questions Student Nutrition Services receives about school meals. Here is the difference: 

Meal account- This account is for purchasing complete meals *only*. A complete meal is an entrée with a fruit and/or vegetable (but can include the whole offered meal of entrée, fruit, vegetable and milk). Anything besides complete meals comes out of the GENERAL account including extra entrees, snacks like chips/cookies/ice cream, extra milk, different drinks and even if you grab an entrée only.
General account- This account is for purchasing complete meals *and* extra items. Extra items vary by building and grade level but can include extra milk, special drinks, cookies, salty snacks, ice cream, extra entrees, etc. Your student can just buy complete meals out of this account with no problem, but it gives him/her the opportunity to purchase something extra if they want.
If you aren’t sure where to put money, Student Nutrition Services always recommends putting money in the GENERAL account. The only exception to this recommendation is if you want your student to be able to buy complete meals only.
Still have questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact Student Nutrition Services.

Allergy Information

For those students with food allergies, we cannot guarantee our food does not contain potential allergens not listed on food labels. While we do our very best to check ingredient statements, product formulations do change. Please call if your student has life threatening allergies and is eating school lunch. For those with peanut and tree nut allergies, we do not process peanut products in any of our kitchens. The peanut butter and jelly Uncrustables on the menu come in fully packaged, so cross contamination should not be an issue. The granola we use in the yogurt & granola daily choice does not have peanuts or tree nuts listed in the ingredient label. However, please be aware that the manufacturer's label does indicate "Granola may contain peanut, almond & pecan ingredients!" This is due to possible cross-contamination during the processing of the granola. The website for the product we use, Nature Valley Oats 'N Honey is http://www.naturevalley.com/Snack-Bars/OatsNHoney. Any pork-containing product is marked with an *. If it is not marked, the product is most likely a turkey product.

To ensure that no student has an allergic reaction, it is imperative that an allergy form be filled out prior to the start of the school year and given to your student’s school nurse. Student Nutrition Services works with each school’s nursing staff to get all student’s allergy information. This information is inputted in our computer system and the students are flagged in the system so that we can ensure no student goes through the meal lines with a food item that can negatively affect their allergy. 

Please contact student nutrition services if you have questions or need clarification. Phone: 937-433-8841 ext. 2015

Charge Policy for 2017-2018

Elementary Schools’ Charge Policy (PVN, PVS, Cline, Driscoll, John Hole, Normandy, Stingley, Weller)

To ensure that all students have access to healthy school lunches and to be good financial stewards, Centerville Student Nutrition Services has instituted a charge policy for the elementary schools.  This policy has as its guiding principle the belief that every student deserves a nutritious lunch but that ultimately it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to provide one unless the family qualifies for the free and reduced lunch program.  To that end, the charge policy is as follows:

  • Students will be allowed to charge a maximum of 3 lunches. 
  • After the third charge, the student will be given an alternate meal consisting of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (cheese sandwich provided for students with peanut allergies) a vegetable or fruit and a milk.
  • With a negative balance, students will not be able to purchase a la carte items, even with cash. 
  • With a negative balance, students with cash or check will be able to purchase a reimbursable meal consisting of a meat, grain, fruit, vegetable, and milk but not a la carte items. This will ensure that students are eating nutritionally sound meals instead of using money towards less nutrient-dense snack foods.

Student Nutrition Services will discretely inform students of low and negative account balances and provide them with a payment reminder slip. Student Nutrition Services will also send home weekly negative balance letters to student’s with negative account balances in an attempt to get accounts in a positive standing. Student Nutrition Services will work with the school’s administration to collect all meal debts.

To minimize the possibility that your child may be without meal money on any given day, meals may be paid for in advance and the balances maintained in your child’s account via MealPayPlus (www.mealpayplus.com).  This free service allows you to set up low balance notices and make automatic payments.  For more information, see the reference guide under “Downloads” at www.centerville.k12.oh.us/nutrition.  Of course meals can also be paid for with cash or check.  Please make checks payable to Centerville City Schools.  Forms and information regarding free or reduced lunch are available at each building and the Student Nutrition Services Office.

Centerville City Schools believes strongly that nutritious lunches are a vital component to a healthy school environment.  Our school lunches provide 1/3 of the RDA of key nutrients including vitamins A and C; fresh fruits and vegetables are served every day.  School meals enhance learning and minimize illnesses and absences.
