Meal Accounts

All students have a personal meal account. Students access their account using their six-digit student ID#.

Putting money on your student’s account in advance eliminates the need for your child to remember to bring money to school daily. Having money in their account also helps keep lunch lines moving.

When students bring a lunch from home, they may use their account to purchase milk, fruit and side salad bar.

Negative Balances & Meal Debt

BVSD policy dictates that students coming through the school lunch line will be provided with a complete school meal regardless of their meal account balance. Food Services staff does not discuss money with students, nor will they identify students with negative account balances in any way. Regardless of their financial status, BVSD believes that every student deserves daily access to fresh, flavorful and nutritious food made with wholesome and when possible local ingredients.
