Elementary Lunches are now $2.60

 

Welcome to the 2018 - 19 school year.  Our cafeterias are excited to welcome your students and look forward to providing them with nutritional, yet tasty options for both breakfast and lunch.  Breakfast is served daily at all schools. 

K-8 schools serve breakfast from 7:40-8:05 and the High School Serves breakfast from 7:30-8:00 and then again during their morning break.  

Breakfast is $1.25 for K-8 and $1.75 for High School.  Those students who are approved to receive reduced breakfast pay $0.25.  Lunch for K-8 is $2.60, High School $3.00, or $0.40 for reduced pricing.  

There are several ways to pay for lunch.  Cash or checks can be dropped off in the school office.  Please note that checks MUST BE WRITTEN TO LUSD. If the check is written to the school it cannot be processed and will be returned to you. The other way to pay for lunch is to visit www.ezschoolpay.com Please see the information below, along with the link. 

Finally a reminder that students at the High School are not permitted to go negative on their lunch accounts. They must have money in their account or cash in hand to purchase food. Elementary school students may go negative the equivalent of 2 lunch meals after which they will receive an alternate lunch which consists of a trip to the salad bar, milk and graham crackers. Reminder e-mails are sent home multiple times per week, but you can also track your student’s meals using www.ezschoolpay.com (even if you do not make payments using this system). 

We look forward to seeing your students in our cafes.

Free/Reduced Lunch Program: 

As part of the Free/Reduced Lunch program a student is entitled to a complete entree and side, salad bar (which includes fruit) and a milk.  For breakfast, they receive an entree, fruit/juice and milk.  There are other items available at the High School (such as water, Gatorade, fruit drinks, chips, snack items, etc.).  These items are not included in the Free/Reduced program and students must purchase these items.  All items are marked with a price so students are aware of these extra charges.  Please talk to your students so they understand what is available as part of the program. If they are charging these items to their lunch account, you are responsible for the payment.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Food Services Department at (209) 836-7400.

Earned Income Tax Credit Information Act

Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits. In most cases, Federal EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, low-income housing, or most Temporary Assistance For Needy Families payments. Even if you do not owe federal taxes, you must file a federal tax return to receive the Federal EITC. Be sure to fill out the Federal EITC form in the Federal Income Tax Return Booklet. For information regarding your eligibility to receive the Federal EITC, including information on how to obtain the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 797 or any other necessary forms and instructions, contact the IRS by calling 1-800-829-3676 or through its Web site at www.irs.gov.

You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its Web site at www.ftb.ca.gov.
