MUSD Updates Meal Loan Policy

 Students eating lunch and drinking milkIn an effort to formalize processes and ensure transparency in operations, MUSD has updated its student meal loan policy.

Grades Pre-K through 8:

  • Parents/guardians will be notified by email through the District’s in-house email notification system when their students’ meal account has a low balance ($10) and/or a negative balance.
  • The School Cafeteria Staff or Designee will also personally call the parent(s) or guardian(s) and/or send letters when the student’s meal account is negative or becomes delinquent.
  • Accounts that are delinquent by $20.00 or more and/or the parent(s) or guardian(s) have not responded to the district’s phone calls and/or letters will be contacted directly by the School Principal or Designee via phone call.
  • If an account is negative at the end of the school year, the negative amount will be rolled over to the next school year.

Grades 9 through 12: 
No Meal Loans available.  If prior year negative balances remain, then cash must be utilized to purchase a meal.
