Children may bring their lunch from home or purchase lunch. A monthly menu/calendar is sent home which lists the daily selections. Snacks are also available, but limited to one-two per day. All students in grades 1-5 are issued a pin number to access a computerized account balance for lunch purchases. Lunch for elementary students for the 2023-2024 school year is $2.90.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to use the debit system, which enables you to send a check or cash in advance to credit your child’s account. You can access this system at the following address - www.myschoolbucks.com. You can also add money to your child’s account by sending a check made payable to the Penn-Delco School District.
The check should be placed in an envelope labeled lunch with your child’s name and room number. A computerized check out system is used at lunch with student ID numbers. Each student has a student ID number that remains the same each year. New students and first grade students will receive an ID number in the mail late August/early September. Free or reduced lunch will utilize the same debit account system; funds are credited directly to the student account.
