School Lunch Charging Policy

Dear FCS Parents/Guardians,
This year, in order to be compliant with federal regulations from the National School Lunch Program, Fostoria City Schools’ charge policy for student accounts will allow students to charge a maximum amount of two lunches ($5.00). No charges are permitted on ala carte items. Repayment for any charged meals is expected the next school day. Students who have reached their charge limit will be offered an alternate meal that consists of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a milk or juice. Students over the charge limit will not be allowed to purchase ala carte items. Students that do not have funds to pay for their meal and are not able to charge should notify the first food service staff member in line and they will then receive the alternate meal. The purpose of this policy is to ensure consistency and fair practices with Food Service student accounts throughout the district and meeting the federal guidelines mentioned above.

In order to accommodate student accounts there is an online system for payment on our FCS district website. Click on the Parents/Students tab, and a drop down will show Total Access (School Dining).  Please click on this and follow the directions listed on the page.  If you do not have a username and password please contact Holly Reinbolt, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or Donna Elchert, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for assistance.  During the sign up process, you will be asked if you would like to receive an email notification when the account balance drops below the district-determined amount of $12.50.  This should eliminate the student running out of funds.  However, glitches in the system do occur and this is not a program that is managed by our food service or technology departments.  Please notify us if there is an issue and we will work to provide as much assistance as possible.
We thank you for your support and cooperation in advance.  If you have any questions throughout the year please do not hesitate to contact our Food Service Department at 419-436-4114.

Respectfully,
Andrew Sprang, Superintendent
