Meal Charge Procedure
It is the desire of Henry County Schools that all students receive a healthy meal. Parents and/or guardians are responsible to provide the means for their child (ren) to be properly fed and ready to learn.
Full or reduced price students are allowed up to $17.75 in charges at the Elementary level, $5.00 at the Middle level, and zero (0) charges at the High level. In the event any student has reached the maximum charge limit, ($17.75 for Elementary, $5.00 for Middle, and 0 for High) the student will be offered an alternate meal, high school students will be offered an alternate meal each time they have no funds to pay for the meal service. The alternate meal will include a sandwich, fresh fruit, and milk. No charges are allowed for adults or A La Carte Items.
