Welcome to the University School Cafeteria!
- If your child needs to charge in the cafeteria, please make arrangements with the cafeteria manager.
- If necessary, your child may charge a breakfast or lunch, but nothing ala carte, and should be paid the next day.
- Only students who buy a meal or ala carte items from the cafeteria may have plate, silverware, etc. If your child packs their lunch, these items should be supplied by the parent.
- All students have a five digit number to type in to access their account. The number needs to be memorized, they may pay by the day or you may put money on their account. Also, you may use mypaymentsplus.com .
- Question or help, please call Ms. Kim at (423) 439-4001.

University School Cafeteria Menus
** In addition to the menu for each day, we will offer a Grab & Go breakfast. It
is a bag with ready to eat items. Get the bag, come to the computer checkout, & Go!
** There are also extra items daily for 7th-12th grades. In July this will include
Stuffed Crust, Buffalo Chicken Pizza and Fries.
** Drinks and snacks are available every day from 7:25 am to 12:40 pm.
The new initiative backed by the United States Department of Agriculture strives to feed kids (and adults!) in need all while saving nutritious, usable food from landfills. All students need to do is leave unwanted food or drinks at a designated station where others can help themselves. Any food left at the end of the day can go towards afterschool programs, or a nearby shelter or nonprofit.

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
