Free and Reduced-Price Meals
Free and reduced-price meals are available to children who meet federal guidelines. Applications are mailed to every family with enrolled students in August and are listed below in Adobe PDF format. Additional hard copies are available in any school’s main office. Only one application is needed per family. Completed applications should be returned to the main office of your child’s school.
Each student is given an account number to enter on a keypad when purchasing lunch or milk. (Kitchen staff handle the money and accounts for kindergarten students.)
Students may bring in money each day, but parents are encouraged to pay ahead of time. Checks can be made out to Glens Falls City School District and sent into school with the child.
Parents can also use MySchoolBucks to make online payments. This system allows parents to deposit money into their child’s account by credit card or PayPal, and even see exactly what their child bought for breakfast or lunch in the past 30 days. By signing up for the “low-balance alert,” parents will also get e-mail notification when their child’s account has dropped below a certain amount.
Setting up an account
All parents need is their child’s name and his or her Alternate ID Number. Accounts take fewer than 3 minutes to set up. To ask questions or check a child’s student ID number, call the Food Services Office at (518) 798-1910.
Charging school meals
It is the District’s goal to provide students with access to nutritious no- or low-cost meals each school day and to ensure that a student whose parent/guardian has unpaid meal charges is not shamed or treated differently than a student whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal charges.
