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 9/30/2014. 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 (2013-14) will be continued until September 30, 2014 of the new school year (2014-15). 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)
