Guidelines for Students during Meal Times

  • Book-bags and backpacks are not allowed in the serving line.
  • If you need a jacket, please bring it to the cafeteria. Students will not be able to return to their classroom for forgotten items during meal times, as classrooms will be kept locked during lunch.
  • Please leave your table and eating areas clean, just like you would at home!
  • Students will be supervised during meal times. At the appropriate time, a supervising adult will direct students to a different supervised activity.
  • Hot water and microwaves are not available to students in grades K-8. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Students who are caught stealing from the cafeteria will be sent to the Dean’s office and punishment will be determined by the Dean.

Lunch Loan Policy

  • Students at the Elementary and Middle School level may charge meals up to a total dollar amount of $12.50. Lunch loans are not allowed on a la carte items.
  • The $12.50 loan limit applies regardless of student eligibility status. 

These lunch loans are to be repaid immediately, as the Nutrition Services Department will not be able to extend further credit beyond the $12.50 loan. Once your student’s account balance becomes negative, you will be notified once per week via a letter sent home with your student until the balance is paid. In order to ensure that no student goes through the day without food, any student who has reached the $12.50 loan limit will be provided an alternate lunch until their lunch loan has been paid. If the use of alternate lunches becomes an issue, the Nutrition Services Director and Principal will be contacted to assist in resolving the problem.

If you would like to place a restriction or note on your student(s) lunch account (for example, student may not purchase a la carte items), please contact the Nutrition Services Department at (303) 450-3985 x1163.

Returned checks are handled by an outside agency, Checkcare Systems. Once a check is identified as a non-sufficient funds (NSF) check by the bank or financial institution, it is automatically sent to Checkcare by the bank and becomes the legal property of Checkcare for purposes of collection. The Pinnacle Charter School will not have any legal say in the fees or collection process of the check. You will be responsible for any and all fees assessed by Checkcare for the collection of the NSF check. You will need to contact Checkcare Systems (303) 657-3230 to resolve the situation.

**Families that need assistance providing lunch are highly encouraged to submit an application for free or reduced meals. Go to www.pinnaclesfa.org to learn more or apply.

 

Special Dietary Needs

If your student(s) need meal modifications due to special dietary needs, please contact the Nutrition Services Department for information on our policies for accommodating special dietary needs. All required forms are available at www.pinnaclesfa.org and www.pinnaclecsi.org. Please contact the Nutrition Services Department at (303) 450-3985 x1163 for more information.
