New Washington County Nutrition Policy - Prohibits Charging Over Two Meals
Parent Letter from Ms. Kim Curtis, School Cafeteria Manager

November 1, 2016

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I know there are times that your child forgets lunch money and needs to charge. This is something that happens from time to time. In the past lunch accounts were charged up to the end of the quarter, this is no more.  Washington County School Nutrition now has a policy in place that only allows two meals to be charged. Your child may pay by the day or put money on their account. Being that UH is a Washington County School; we must follow this policy as well.

As the parent or guardian there are ways to keep up with your child’s account balance. Email me anytime at or call UH cafeteria, 439-4001, I am here Monday thru Friday from 6:00am to 1:00pm. My door is always open if you would like to come in to see me.

Washington County School Nutrition now has a new Director, Mrs. Shew, she has some wonderful ideas for food service, so stay tuned for that.

We now have a Facebook, (Washington County School Nutrition), go like our page!!

Your cooperation is much appreciated,

Kim Curtis, UH cafeteria


There will be no more waiting to pay at the end of the 9 weeks in the cafeteria.  Audits are not correct when this occurs.  All meals in the cafeteria should be paid for daily or place money in their accounts.  If for some reason your child must charge, the charge needs to be paid by the following day.  Please make sure your child has money on their accounts or doesn't owe by calling the cafeteria any day of the week from 6:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  Thank you, Kim Curtis, Cafeteria Manager

Dear Parent or Guardian,

With the federal guidelines changing school lunches (see menus above) your child may have told you about the changes going on now in the cafeteria. As most of you have noticed breakfast and lunch prices have increased, as well as the A la Carte items (see list below). If your student is going to purchase a lunch this is what they must have on their tray.  At least three of these items and one must be a fruit or vegetable. This counts as their meal for the price of their grade level, (example: 1.95- k-4, 2.05- 5-8 and 2.15 for 9-12). An entre (meat), a vegetable and fruit, or two vegetables or two fruits, milk, and roll if the roll comes with the entre item, otherwise your student will be charged A la Carte prices for what they have on their tray.

Please keep in mind that no charging is allowed in the cafeteria, I try to refrain from this but I understand emergencies occur and it cannot be helped, so parents please help me with this matter. Please note, you may receive a phone call from the cafeteria manager, letting you know your child owes money in the cafeteria. Some charges get way out of control and the amount of food prepared depends on the amount of students paying for breakfast or lunch. If money is not sent in for your childs account, your child cannot be counted as buying a meal. When this happens it makes my meal count low, and that means less food being prepared.

We want to thank you for letting us serve your child.


  • Please note that there will be no charging allowed in the cafeteria.
  • Parents, when writing a check, please use black or blue ink.  Regions Bank has asked us not to accept any checks written with other colors of ink.  We are sorry for any inconvenience!
