WELCOME TO BARBOUR COUNTY CHILD NUTRITION PROGRAM

 

All Barbour County Schools serve breakfast and lunch each school day.

Barbour County Schools will continue Provision 2 school meals for 2013-2014 school year.  Provision 2 allows students to receive school meals at no charge. 

It is Barbour County Board of Education policy that “Offer Versus Serve” shall be implemented in all Barbour County School lunchrooms grades 3-12 for the school lunch program and grades PK–12 for the school breakfast program.

New federal guidelines for lunch require schools to offer five food components – 1 serving of each – milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, meat/meat alternate. Students may decline 2 of the 5 food components, but must select at least 3 meal components.  One of the meal selections must be at least ½ cup of fruits or vegetables. 

Federal guidelines for breakfast require schools to offer three food components - 1 serving of each - milk, fruits, and grains.  Schools using "Offer Versus Serve" will offer at least four food components.  Students must continue to select at least 3 food items and may decline a food item from any component at breakfast.

All students will be assigned a three or four digit identification number to be used in the cafeteria. Students need to learn this number as soon as possible. Students must go by the computer operator with their meal, tell the cashier their meal number or use the pin pad to enter the number and then be seated. Students at Barbour County Primary Schools will be allowed to use a finger scan to enter their cafeteria identification number.  Students should not go back to the serving line after giving the cashier their number unless the cashier sends the student.

Meal prices for school year 2017-2018 will be as follows: 

Breakfast - Students - no charge, Employees $2.00, Visitors (Dine In) $2.00, and Visitors (Carry Out) $3.00

Lunch - Students - no charge, Employees $3.50, Visitors (Dine In) $4.00 and Visitors (Carry Out) $5.00.

Meals are for consumption during the regular school day. Except for meals provided for officially approved field trips, all food should be consumed in the cafeteria.

Barbour County Schools may make substitutions for individual children who are unable to consume a food item because of medical or other special dietary need. Substitutions will be made on a case-by-case basis and will be supported by a statement signed by a recognized medical authority. The school will provide a form upon request to the parent/guardian for the medical authority to complete. The completed diet prescription form must be returned to the school.

Meals will not be withheld or taken away from a student as a means of discipline.                                    

 WELLNESS POLICY INFORMATION

The Board of Education wellness policy has been developed to promote lifelong wellness practices. Part of this policy restricts foods and beverages of minimum nutritional value from being available on campus during the school day. This policy includes foods served at school parties. Parents should contact the school prior to sending any foods to be served to the class. This policy does not restrict what parents may provide for their own child.

Each school has a wellness committee.  The public is invited to be a part of the committees.  Please check each school's announcements to find out when wellness committee meetings will be held and how you can become a member.
