Students who qualify under U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines may get meals free or at a reduced price of .30 for breakfast and .40 for lunch. All meals served meet nutrition standards established by the USDA and Texas Department of Agriculture.
Free/Reduced Applications are distributed to each student within the first three days of the start of school. They are also available in each campus office, each campus cafeteria, and at the child nutrition office located at 800 Eagle Drive, Argyle, Texas 76226. Applications are accepted at any time during the school year. Spanish applications are available upon request.
Only one application per family is needed. Children who receive food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) qualify for free school meals. Unless your family has received a letter stating otherwise, an application with the child's case number must still be completed. Your child(ren) my be eligible for free or reduced-priced meals based on your household income. An application must be completed in full, and signed by an adult household member before benefits can be received. Incomplete applications will be returned to respective households. Parents are responsible for all charges before an application is approved. Applications are approved for the entire year. However, decreases in income should be reported for reduced status families as it could change the household status to free.
Meal Payments: Full and reduced price meals payments can be made by students or parents in advance at any cafeteria or in the Child Nutrition office. Prepayments are encouraged and help increase the flow of students in the serving lines. You may place money on to your child(ren)'s account at their campus cafeteria or online at www.mymealtime.com.
Meal Charges: Students will be allowed to charge up to $5.50 on their accounts for meals only. Charging will not be allowed for extras or a la carte purchases. When a child has reached this limit, an alternative meal of a cheese sandwich and juice will be offered to the student. It is the parent's responsibility to make certain that their child(ren) has(have) money on their account. Account balances and purchase activity may be viewed online at www.mymealtime.com. Balance statements for those students having less than $10.00 dollars on their accounts will be sent home weekly at the elementary level. Parent's should call the child nutrition office at (940) 464-7241 ext. 1010 if they experience a problem in paying for their child(ren)'s meals.
Returned Checks: If a check is returned for non-payment for whatever reason, the student's meal account will be charged the amount of the check until payment is received. There will also be a $15.00 processing fee for all returned checks and this amount will also be charged back to the meal account. If this action causes the student meal account to be over the charge limit, an alternative meal will be given. Should we receive more than one returned check, all meal accounts associated with the check will be placed on a cash only basis and we will no longer accept a check for meal payments. Please notify the child nutrition office immediately if you feel there is a problem with a check you have submitted for payment.
