Chandler Public Schools encourages all students to eat a healthy, nutritious meal and it is the goal of the Child Nutrition Department to provide an appealing meal to all Chandler students. Students have the option to purchase meals or students who may qualify are encouraged to complete a Free or Reduced Meal application for free or reduced meals.
For those students whose families do qualify, meals are provided for free or at a reduced price. Prior to any meals being served free or at a reduced price, a current, approved application must be on file in the Child Nutrition office. New applications must be completed every school year and students will be expected to pay for meals received until an application is approved. Any charges incurred prior to an application being approved is considered delinquent debt and must be paid by the student or student’s family. However, children who were eligible to receive free or reduced priced meals on the last day of school the previous year may eat as a free or reduced- price student for the first 30 days of school the following school year. After that, if a new application is not received and approved, the student will need to pay for their meals.
For paying students, each student has an account into which money may be deposited. At mealtime, each student scans their lunch card or enters their pin number, and the cost of one meal is deducted at the point of service. Students also have the option to bring money to pay for a meal. Meal accounts are not to be considered charge accounts. Money must be deposited on a regular basis if the student is expected to eat in the cafeteria. Credit cards may be used to pay for meals online through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal or the Infinite Campus Student Portal.
If you or your student does not have a login, please contact your student’s building secretary or Jill Lambert at 405-258-1450, ext. 100. There is a small charge to use credit cards for meal payments. Parents may set up automated payments and email messages for low balance notification and for inquiries about balances on the student’s account as well.
The district recognizes there are occasions when a student may need to charge a meal due to a variety of circumstances. If charges continue to accumulate, families will be encouraged to complete a free and reduced-price meal application form. Repayment of the delinquent debt/charges may be paid off all at once, or may be made in smaller payments until the debt is paid in full. Any charges remaining on the student’s account at the end of the school year will be transferred into the next school year, and remaining years, until the debt is paid or reclassified as bad debt by the district.
