At Meridian School, we believe that a healthy diet positively impacts academic achievement.
 
Since good nutrition is an essential part of learning and leading a balanced life, Meridian School will actively work to ensure meals served in the school cafeteria meet or exceed health guidelines for all students. The cafeteria will not serve or provide access for students to Foods of Minimal Nutritional Value as defined by the US Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture.
 
Forgotten Lunch/ Overdrawn Account Policy:
 

We understand that mornings are hectic, and sometimes lunches are forgotten. If your child has forgotten their lunch and are not able to reach a parent or guardian to supply a lunch, your child will not go hungry! We will ensure that your student receives a school lunch. At that time, we will charge your account for this lunch. Should you have a zero balance on your account, we will contact you for payment and ask that you add funds to your student's lunch account.

If for some reason your child collects 5 unpaid lunches on their account, on the 6th forgotten lunch day your student will be supplied with a Sack Lunch. The Sack Lunch will consist of a Cheese Sandwich, Milk, and a whole Fruit. Your student will receive a Sack Lunch until the unpaid balance is paid in full.

If you have any questions about this policy, please contact: School.Lunch@mwschool.org
