 NEW NORRIS SCHOOL DISTRICT CAFETERIA PROCEDURES STARTING JAN. 9, 2017
 
The Norris School District uses  NUTRIKIDS©, a computerized lunch system which replaces lunch tickets at each school site. Parents may pay and check their balances online at www.MySchoolBucks.com.  You can pay by credit card/debit or electronic check for a transaction fee of $1.95. When making an electronic payment, there is a processing delay of up to 48 hours.  We have also provided a link on the Norris School District site at www.norris.k12.ca.us.
 
Parents also have the option of making payments by cash, check or money order each morning in cafeteria from 8:00 am to 8:15 am, prior to the start of school. This payment option is immediately added to your child’s account.  You may only add funds to your child(ren)’s account at the school site where they attend.
 
The goal of Norris School District’s lunch program is to provide a healthy lunch to children during the school day.  In order to accomplish this, we must make sure we are financially secure.  You play a key role in this effort, and are responsible for purchases made by your child in our school cafeteria.   Beginning on January 9, 2017 we will implement the following procedures for negative balances:
 
  • A courtesy robo call will be made each Monday notifying you of your child’s negative balance. (This is a courtesy call and it is still your responsibility to keep current on your child’s lunch account.)
  • A courtesy email or robo call will be sent on Wednesdays.
  • Once your child’s account has reached the 3-lunch maximum your account will be blocked. No further lunches can be charged until the balance is paid.
  • An alternate lunch of a cheese sandwich, fruit, vegetable, and milk will be served to any child whose account has been blocked.
 
We encourage you to keep your child’s lunch account current.  You can check your account and make payments by using the website listed above at any time. Remember, with electronic payments there is a processing delay.  If you feel you may qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program, you can get an application at any of our schools offices or on our website listed above.   Complete the form and turn it in at the same locations. In the 2017-18 school year, online applications will be available to all parents.   Please contact the Norris School District Office at 387-7000 if you have any questions.
 
With the completion of our Norris Middle School Modernization Project, we plan to utilize the capabilities of our new kitchen by improving our lunch program. Beginning with the 2016-17 school year, Bimat Elementary School will not be using Preferred Meals. Instead we will be cooking our meals in house at Norris Middle School and transporting them to Bimat Elementary. Our elementary kitchens are not cooking kitchens and we are working on options at each site. Bimat Elementary was chosen as a “trial school” this year because less modifications were needed. We are excited to implement this change and encourage your child(ren) to participate daily in this lunch program.
