We are very pleased to announce as of July 2018, Weber School District will now offer an online Free/Reduced Meal Application submission process. The online application submission is accessed by the guardian logging into http://MyWeber.wsd.net and click on the header Students and select Meal Application from the drop down.
The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program that provides students a well-balanced meal each day. All student meals are partially reimbursed by the National School Lunch Program when the household does not qualify for a free meal. Parents of children who do not qualify for the free meal benefit are required to make payments to the student account only for the portion of the cost that is not reimbursed by the National School Lunch Program.
The Unpaid Meal Charges Procedure is written to outline how Weber School District will communicate to parents/guardians about the process for managing unpaid meal charges on student accounts, the procedure for collecting balances that are negative, and to assure parents that no student should be embarrassed or confronted in collecting delinquent account balances.
This policy will apply to all schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program within the Weber School District boundaries.
When a new student transfers into a school within the district, parents will receive the following information from the school:
This information is available to all students.
Families may be eligible to receive benefits from Special Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Utah TANF/FEP, or FDPIR. If the student is eligible, this benefit is automatically updated in our “School Lunch At Weber” (SLAW) program. Child Nutrition will send a letter to the household informing parents of the student’s eligibility. Any family qualifying for these benefits do not need to submit a free/reduced application form.
Parents have the option of paying student lunch accounts by bringing cash or check to the lunchroom at the school. Payments can also be made at the office. Online payments can be made at myweber.wsd.net
If the negative balance is greater than $10.00 and payment is not received within one week, the office will send a letter home to the parent/guardian with available payment plan options.
If the negative balance is greater than $20.00 and payment is not received or a payment plan has not been established within 10 days, another letter will be sent home from the office notifying the parent/guardian that the deficit amount is being sent to collections.
If payment is not received or a payment plan is not established within 10 days and an individual student has a negative balance greater than $30.00, the account will be referred to collections by the administration. Any family with an aggregate negative balance greater than $50.00 at a single school, will also be referred to collections by the administration.
All balances in a student’s account will roll into the next year.
After graduation, any balance in a senior’s account or if a student leaves Weber School District, the remaining balance will be transferred into a siblings account. If there is not a sibling in the district, a letter will be sent to the parent/guardian notifying them of the remaining balance, and a request may be made for any refund at the school. If the parent/guardian does not request a refund by the end of the same calendar year, the unclaimed balance will be donated to students in need.
