School Lunch Charge Policy
The School Board has established a Meal Charge Policy for the Watervliet School District’s Lunch Program. Students are allowed to charge three meals without payment or contact from their parents. After the three charges have occurred, with no note or phone call from the parent/guardian, the cafeteria will serve these students peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and milk, which constitutes a complete lunch.
