The goal of the Child Nutrition Department of Pearl Public School District is to provide the children of this district meals that are tasty and nutrition at an affordable price. A well-balanced menu will be offered which meets program requirements based on student likes and dislikes, USDA foods available, economics, and dietary guideline compliance.
All Pearl Schools participate in the National School Lunch Program. A written agreement is finalized between the Superintendent of Education and the State Department of Education for each individual federal lunch program and federal breakfast program. These agreements with the state agency ensure that all programs are in compliance with the regulations and qualify for the federal cash reimbursements as well as donated foods by the USDA.
A continuous effort will be made to increase student participation and to make available information pertaining to the nutrition for a healthy school environment.
So that every child will be assured of adequate school food service, an open, receptive channel will be available between school personnel and the Child Nutrition staff.
New Online Meal Payments are available.
You can now pay for student meals online! School Payment Solutions is the name of our online payment system. You can create a login and add your students to your account using their lunch numbers.
From this account, you can view your students’ eating history and account balances, as well as set email alerts to notify you of a low balance. There is no fee for these services.
You can also make payments online using your debit or credit card for a convenience fee of $2.75 each time you make an online payment. You can deposit money in multiple students’ accounts in one online payment. Any money left in student accounts will be rolled over to the next school year. Refunds are only issued when a student leaves the District upon graduation or withdrawal.
