2017-18 General Information 

  • Students will have the ability to borrow money if necessary for NSLP breakfast or lunch meals. Any borrowed money reaching $7.95 for grades K-8 must be paid before another loan can occur. 
     
  • High School (HS) students will have the ability to borrow up to $2.75. Students will not be able to borrow money until any negative balance is paid (-$.01 to -$2.75)
     
  • Students that have qualified for reduced meals may charge up to $1.20.
     
  • If your child exceeds the charge limit, they will be given an alternate lunch consisting of: cheese sandwich, apple slices, vegetable and milk. They will not be permitted to receive the menued lunch. The balance must be paid in order to receive the regular lunch and the student must have money in his/her account to purchase breakfast and/or lunch.
  • If your child has a negative balance on the first day of school, he/she will not be able to borrow money until the negative balance is paid in full.

ALA CARTE ITEMS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ANY STUDENTS TO PURCHASE IF THEY HAVE A NEGATIVE BALANCE.

We will continue to notify students when their account is $10.00 or less. (There are times when you may find multiple envelopes in his/her backpack. This occurs when a child forgets to give his or her parent/guardian the first envelope when notified that their account is $10.00 or less.)

Deposits can be made with a check (made payable to FASD Food Service) or via the Internet at www.schoolcafe.com. Cash will be accepted for deposit, but Fleetwood School District will not be responsible for lost or stolen cash. In the event the bank returns a check due to non-sufficient funds (NSF), we will contact the person who wrote the check and the total amount of the check plus the $15.00 service fee will be deducted from the students account.  We will not redeposit the check. If the check amount plus the $15.00 fee is not sent in CASH immediately, a “NO CHECKS” status will be placed on the child’s account.

The food service department uses a lunch debit system

If you have not registered your child, please read the FAQ sheet and information page for www.schoolcafe.com to set up a new parent access account so that you may check your student(s) account and make deposits to your student(s) account on-line. You can also set-up the low balance alert which will email you when the students balance is getting low.

Menu Information

The Fleetwood Area School District is required to comply with the Federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Changes to the school lunch program will be enforced by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the USDA. The changes are mandated by federal law and Fleetwood Area School District must adhere to these changes. Please take a few minutes to review the information listed below and discuss the changes with your child (ren) in order to prepare them for their first visit to the cafeteria.

The menu will only offer one choice each day with an alternate choice offered for the week. This is due to very strict guidelines that control the number of calories, fat content, sodium etc. The district follows the offer versus serve program which allows students to choose only three (3) of the five (5) choices offered or may choose all items offered. Additionally, students MUST take a fruit or vegetable as one of the choices.   Milk is no longer a required choice but is recommended.

Example:

  • Menu
    • Chicken Strips w/Sauce
    • Sm. Salad w/dressing
    • Fresh Veggies
    • Baked Sweet Potato Bites
    • Pineapples
    • Choice of Milk

    • Chicken Strips w/Sauce
    • Fresh Veggies

The federal law also has established minimum and maximum requirements by grade level, grades K-5, 6-8, 9-12, in order to meet the proper requirements at each level. There will also be more whole grain items (WG) required on the menu. In addition the milk choices will be limited to 1%, and fat free white and fat free chocolate and strawberry flavored milk.
