She has a true passion and dedication for the nutrition and culinary fields.
The Hopkinton Public Schools Food Service Department takes pride in preparing and serving nutritious meals to our students. We believe that students learn better when they’re not hungry. As such, the following meal and collection guidelines have been developed for Paid and Reduced-price students in order for the lunch program to continue operating in a fiscally responsible manner:
- Once a student account has reached a negative balance an email is sent weekly notifying parents of their negative balance. A list of students with negative balances will also be provided to the principal’s office weekly.
- Students will NOT be allowed to charge desserts, snacks, milk or any other a la carte items if they have a negative balance that exceeds these guidelines.
- The food service manager will contact the parent or guardian once the balance reaches a negative $10. The Food Service Director will contact the parent or guardian once the balance reaches a negative $50.
Parents or guardians are encouraged to apply for a Free and Reduced Lunch under the federal government’s guidelines. Applications are available on the District’s website.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please contact the Food Service Department, email@example.com if you have any questions about these guidelines.
