Student Wellness Plan has even more information about how we're working to provide a healthy environment for our students.

To establish a consistent policy regarding meal charges and the collection of those charges, we have implemented a meal charging policy. The policy is as follows:

South Central Local School district student’s grades K-12 may charge up to and including 3 meals, after 3 charges are accumulated letters will be sent home to the parent/guardian after 5 charges are accumulated a phone call will be made to the parent/guardian to let them know the child has reached the maximum charge limit and that these charges are to be paid in Full before another charge can be accumulated.

Students will be told by the cashier if they have a Low or Negative balance daily so they can inform parents/guardians.

There is no charging of ala carte items. There will be no charging for the last two weeks of the school year.

Prepayment of meals is strongly encouraged to avoid the need to charge. Payments may be made in the form of checks or cash in the school cafeteria. Parents may also register their students at using their student's school ID#. This number can be found on the students’ schedule, grade card, or by calling the school, this number stays with them every year and balances will carryover. Parents may view current balances, student transactions, request email notification of low balances, and deposit money into student’s accounts. If you deposit money on your student’s account, there will be a convenience fee charged. You may split your deposit into more than one account, at the same or different buildings. Please allow 24 hours for your transaction to process.

Our Goal is to encourage parents and students to share the responsibility of meal payments, while remaining age appropriate. Students may request their account balance at any time. Parents may also phone the food service department at 419-752-0011 in addition to the site.

Please help us keep meal costs down by paying all charges promptly.

Thank you in advance for your help, if you have any questions, please call the Foodservice department at 419-752-0011.
