Meal Charge Procedures
The mission of Scintilla Charter Academy School Nutrition is to provide quality, nutritious and balanced meals every day to increase student satisfaction and participation in Scintilla Charter Academy Nutrition Program
Scintilla Charter Academy participates in the national school breakfast and lunch programs. These programs are regulated and funded by the United States Department of Agriculture with the School and Community Nutrition Unit of the Georgia Department of Education overseeing the program administration.
Breakfast cost is $2.00 & Lunch cost is $3.40.
The following Policies and Procedures will be in effect for the 2019-2020 school year:
- Scholars are allowed to charge the cost of two day’s meals (2 breakfasts and 2 lunches).
- Families will be notified by balance due letters of unpaid balances each week.
If the charge is not paid by the beginning of the next week, the child will be offered a replacement meal at lunch consisting of a sandwich and milk or, at breakfast, a pop tart and milk.
Pre-payment by cash or check to SCA Nutrition may be made weekly or monthly in envelopes provided by the school. The scholar’s name and homeroom teacher name must be on the envelope to credit the proper account.
Families with more than one scholar at the same school should send the cash or check separately for each scholar at Scintilla in a separate envelope.
Checks should be made out to SCA Nutrition or SCA SNP with scholar’s name and lunch account number written on the check.
This year, payments can be made through the Parent Portal located on SCA’s website. Information regarding Parent Portal logins will be sent home on the first day of each school year.
Non-Sufficient Fund Checks (NSF)
Any non-sufficient check must be picked up by a parent and paid with cash payment Any bank charges that have been assessed will be due in cash as well.
Students may qualify for the free school meals if they receive food stamps (SNAP, Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) or (TANF) Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. Families may also qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on family income.
Family applications rather than individual applications are used. Only one application per family is needed. Families must complete a new application each year to determine eligibility. Even if you have students at other schools receiving the benefits, you must complete an application for your Scintilla Scholar separately but include ALL members of the family on that application.
Applications are available at Scintilla Charter Academy or www.scintillacharteracademy.com.
All household members including all children must be listed on the application.
Please make certain that your application reaches the school nutrition manager at Scintilla. A letter to confirm your eligibility status will be sent to each household. Please retain this letter for your records.
The Scintilla Charter Academy Nutrition Staff wish for all scholars to have a successful school term and are available to scholars and parents for any food-related question, allergy concerns, or menu suggestions. Please contact Sylvia Wade, email@example.com with questions or suggestions.
