IT’S HERE!!!! The new way to pay for school lunch
(and eventually other school fees and expenses)!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

You may now establish an online account through which you can monitor and make payments on you student’s Nutrikids School Lunch Account. The process is simple and easy to use. If your child is assigned to Glover School, but attending Village or Eveleth Schools, please use the Glover School. You will be unable to locate your student if you use a different building name. Online payments can be made using a credit or debit card for a small convenience fee. You may still make payments by sending funds in with your child. All cashiers can credit funds to your student’s account in that building.

You will be able to monitor your student’s activity and establish a threshold for notices home regarding low balances (avoiding those annoying negative balance emails!). Here is how:
  • 1       Navigate to www.myschoolbucks.com
  • 2       Select Register for a free account
  • 3       Select Massachusetts
  • 4       Select Marblehead
  • 5       Complete your personal information
  • 6       Select your child’s school ( if your child is enrolled in Glover, but attending Village or Eveleth, you must still select Glover) The system will request your child's PIN and it will be emailed to you.
  • 7       Using the listed PIN, identify your student!
  • 8       Done!
Please contact me with any questions you may have. Enjoy the Day!




Other questions about using money on account to purchase non-meal food items have arisen. In our original communications to you, we stated that the funds would only be available for the purchase of meals. The system has the capacity to allow a variety of account permissions for each student. If you wish to make funds unavailable to your student for anything but lunch purchases, please email foodservice@marbleheadschools.org to set these restrictions on your student's account. They can be modified at any time. All of the snacks we offer fall within the guidelines established by the Act for Healthier Children and the National School Lunch Program regulations regarding competitive foods.

Expiring Meal Benefits! Deadline to reapply is 9/25/2013. This will make sure there is no lapse in benefits.

Important notice to all parents whose children are receiving Free or Reduced Priced Meal Benefit. The benefits for which your household qualified last school year (2012-2013) will be continued until Monday, September 30, 2013 of the new school year (2013-2014). If you wish to continue receiving benefits after that date, you must complete a new application each school year. As usual, applications will be sent home on the first day of school and are available on the school’s web site. If you have any questions, please email Richard Kelleher or call 781-639-3120 x-3163.

Due to issues surrounding confidentiality, a separate application for the waiver or modification of participation or athletic fees will be used going forward.  This form will available in your child’s school or on the Marblehead Public Schools web page. (www.marbleheadschools.org)





 
Important Information from Your Lunch Program

In an effort to achieve a cost neutral program, a review of our system-wide pricing structure was undertaken. On analysis it was noted that the prices charged to adults at all levels and for lunch at the High School and Elementary levels have been insufficient given the selections and serving environments.  The prices charged were, in fact, not representative of the actual costs of operating at these levels. A proposal was made to the School Committee to increase some of our pricing to address this issue. Our purpose in taking these actions is to bring these areas into "business" alignment as opposed to just raising prices.

The Committee assented to the following pricing as of Monday, October 1, 2012.

Breakfast will increase to $1.75 at all levels

Adult Meals
•       Adult meals will increase by $.50 to $4.00.
•       Applicable taxes (6.25%) will no longer be included in the meal price. The amount charged will be $4.25.
•       At the High School, made to order sandwiches will have the premium of $.75 added as with student lunches. The price for the adult, made to order sandwich will be $5.05 ($4.75 +$.30 tax).

High School
•       The base meal served will increase by $.25 to $3.50. This applies to all meals not originating in the made to order sandwich line.
•       The made to order sandwich line will have a premium of $.75 added to the price reflecting the actual cost of the product. The price will be $4.25.
•       A second tier lunch, which has an extra portion of the main entrée only, will be available for an additional $1.50. The second portion must be taken at the time of the initial purchase. This is not available on the made to order sandwich line.

Elementary Schools (All – including Glover at the Village School)
•       The base meal served will increase by $.25 to $2.75.
