Dear Parents and Students

If your child/children received free/reduced meals the previous school year while attending DEHLI UNIFIED SCHOOL, you have 30 days from the first day of school to submit a new application. If a new application is not received within 30 calendar days, on the 31 day of the new school year the child/children and parents will be responsible for the cost of meals until a new application is submitted and an eligibility letter is received.

All new students and parents to DELHI UNIFIED SCHOOL will be responsible for the cost of meals until a new application is submitted and approved for Free/Reduced meals and an eligibility letter is received.

All students’ meal charges incurred while waiting for approval of a Free/reduced meal application is the responsibility of the students and parents until the receipt of an eligibility letter.

In addition, students moving, graduating or leaving DELHI UNIFIED SCHOOL must pay all cafeteria charges before receiving a report card, clearance for graduation or release of any school records.

It is important to be sure all students have the opportunity to eat, however some students will forget their lunch monies to purchase a meal. We will allow students to charge their meal account; unfortunately this is difficult for the FOOD SERVICE DEPARTMENT to collect these charges. We are forced to limit the meal charges to SIX-(6) K-8 and Two (2) for 9-12 grades per student. If the child/parent fails to pay the negative meal account the child will receive an Alternate meal (Cheese sandwich fruit/vegetable bar and milk) until the account is brought to good standings.

The FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM is a valuable and economical service for your child/children. It is important for parents and students to pay all charges to the FOOD SERVICE DEPARTMENT as soon as possible.

Respectfully

Joseph Tenorio
