The district permits students to incur reasonable charges for school meals. In an effort to ensure the effective operation of the district’s food service program, the district establishes the following procedures for student payment of school meals.

At the Elementary Level –Meals will always be provided to students as per federal regulations. Students will not be permitted to purchase a la carte items when they have a negative balance for charged lunches.

At the Secondary Level – Students who have exhausted their lunch account and reach a negative balance of $5.00 will only be permitted to purchase the featured main line lunch until the negative balance has been paid.  A la carte items may not be purchased until negative lunch balances are resolved.

****a la carte items include but may not be limited to the following:  Milk, cookies, chips, bottled water, and all other items available for purchase by school*****

Voluntary Student Accident Insurance

This is a reminder to parents with a child or children attending school in our School District
that we do not carry medical insurance on students, but do provide parents with the
opportunity to select a primary excess group insurance plan for students. Student accident
insurance can help you manage the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses, since many group
insurance policies no longer pay full hospital and medical expenses and may require a
deductible or co-insurance. There are two plans available for your consideration:

Plan #1 School Time Coverage – Costs $30 per student – This will cover injury
occurring while the student is traveling to and from school, while attending school
sponsored activities such as plays, assemblies, class trips, intramural sports, gym and
physical education classes, etc.

Plan #2 24 Hour Coverage – Costs $116 per student – This will cover all of the
above, plus accidents occurring away from school, in the evenings and on weekends,
vacations, etc.
Please note that the plans should be considered in conjunction with any other family medical
insurance you may have.

Please click on the link below for the attached brochure and a complete description of the plans and the various coverage options. If you have any questions, please call an Insurance Broker at American Management Advisors, a division of Alive Risk directly at (215) 946-8888 between 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
