Important Reminder for Students and Teachers
April 20, 2016
Due to closing out the end of the school year, it is VERY important that you clear up any lunchroom charges at this time. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-87 indicates that bad debts are an unallowable cost to federal program funds. Bad debts are debts, including losses (whether actual or estimated), that arise from uncollectable accounts and other claims. Bad debts, related collection costs, and legal costs are unallowable expense to the School Nutrition Program.
Therefore; no charges will be allowed for breakfast and/or lunch for the month of May, beginning May 2-May 18, 2016. All meals must be paid for daily or for the week. NO charges will be allowed.
If you have any questions concerning your account, please contact me at (706) 297-7052. Any money remaining in the account on May 18, 2016 will be carried over to next school year.
I would like to thank you for your participation in the School Nutrition Program for the 2015-2016 school year. The School Nutrition Staff looks forward to serving you next school year. Have a safe and healthy summer.
