You can also set a text or email notification when your student’s balance gets low.
Please read the following important information about the charging policy at Global Village Academy Northglenn.
 
All students K-8 will receive a reimbursable meal regardless of their account balance.
Households are and will continue to be held responsible for all charges incurred.
 
Nutrition Services will handle negative student food service accounts as follows:
  • Households will be notified of outstanding balances and will have 15 days to make payment arrangements with Nutrition Services. If no arrangements are made within 15 days, another letter will be sent out notifying the household they have 5 days to make a prompt payments and if a payment is not made, the account will be turned over to collections.
  • When the student’s lunch account balance is at $5.00 or less, the student will be reminded daily of the remaining balance. The reminder will be discreet. Periodically, households with negative balances of $10.00 or more will receive a letter reminding them of their negative balance request and prompt payment.
  • If the balance is minus $25.00 or more and the household has received a warning letter, an additional letter will be sent to the student’s household requesting payment within 5 business days, or the debt will be turned over to a collection agency.
  • If you have been approved for free and reduced-price meals, but still carry a negative balance on your student’s account, the previous steps also apply. You may make student payments and add money to your child’s account online at myschoolbucks.com
Parents or guardians who are struggling to cover the cost of school meals are encouraged to complete a meal benefits application. For more instructions and information go to www.pinnaclesfa.org. The information on the form is confidential and is not shared with any agency outside of the Pinnacle School Food Authority.

Todos los estudiantes de K-8 recibirán una comida reembolsable independientemente del saldo de su cuenta. Los hogares son y seguirán siendo responsables de todos los cargos incurridos.
 
Los Servicios de Nutrición se encargarán de las cuentas negativas del servicio de alimentos para estudiantes de la siguiente manera:
  • Los hogares serán notificados de los saldos pendientes y tendrán 15 días para hacer los arreglos de pago con los Servicios de Nutrición. Si no se hacen arreglos dentro de los 15 días, se enviará otra carta notificando a la familia que tienen 5 días para realizar pagos puntuales y si no se realiza un pago, la cuenta se transferirá a cobros.
  • Cuando el saldo de la cuenta del almuerzo del alumno sea de $ 5.00 o menos, se le recordará diariamente al saldo restante. El recordatorio será discreto. Periódicamente, los hogares con saldos negativos de $ 10.00 o más recibirán una carta recordándoles su solicitud de saldo negativo y el pago puntual.
  • Si el saldo es menos $ 25.00 o más y el hogar ha recibido una carta de advertencia, se enviará una carta adicional al hogar del estudiante solicitando el pago dentro de los 5 días hábiles, o la deuda se entregará a una agencia de cobro.
  • Si ha sido aprobado para comidas gratis o de precio reducido, pero aún tiene un saldo negativo en la cuenta de su estudiante, también se aplican los pasos anteriores. Puede hacer pagos a los estudiantes y agregar dinero a la cuenta de su hijo en línea en myschoolbucks.com.
 
Se alienta a los padres o tutores que luchan por cubrir el costo de las comidas escolares que complete una solicitud de beneficios de comida. Para obtener más instrucciones e información, vaya a www.pinnaclesfa.org. La información en el formulario es confidencial y no se comparte con ninguna agencia fuera de la Autoridad de Alimentos de Pinnacle School.
