As another successful school year comes to an end, the Personal Touch staff would like to wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy summer. To the Class of 2017, may you enjoy much success as you leave Lake Shore and embark on a new chapter in your lives. We look forward to seeing returning students in September for the 2017-18 school year.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS:
The Free/Reduced Meal Applications for the upcoming 2017-18 school year will be mailed out sometime in early August of 2017. Your child's meal status for the 16-17 school year (whether FREE or REDUCED) will remain in effect until October 19, 2017. If a new application for the 2017-18 school year has not been turned in by that date, your child's meal status will revert to PAID and you will be responsible for any charges incurred until a new application has been processed.
The District has a program called MySchoolBucks in which you can monitor your child's account and apply money into that account if you wish to. By participating in this program, your student will never need to worry about their lunch balance. Any questions regarding your child's account, please feel free to call the Food Service Director, Debbie Becker at 716-926-2291 or Sue Kowal in the Business Office at 716-926-2222.
Please note that students without money for their meals will be allowed to charge food purchases to their account up to a limit of $10.00 (until April 1st). After that, they will no longer be able to charge food purchases. In this case, children are provided with a sandwich to eat so that no child goes without eating. *Please know that there is no requirement for the District to provide a child with food if they do not have money to pay for a meal - the District follows this practice based on a local decision made by the Board of Education.* Please know in advance that if a child owes $10.00 or more on his/her account, a regular full school breakfast or lunch will not be provided - the alternate meal will be given in place of the regular meal. This is done because the District does not receive Federal and State funding on charged meals. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure your child's account balance remains positive so that they are able to fully participate in the District's Breakfast and Lunch programs.
