Child Nutrition

 

** Durant School's Policy on Meal Charges:

All students in grades pre-kindergarten through 3rd may charge meals at school. Cafeteria charges will be limited to a maximum of five (5) meals per child from August to May 1. After May 1 there will be no charges allowed for students. Students who reach this limit will not be allowed to charge in the cafeteria. Rather than allow a child to go hungry, the school will provide an alternative meal, defined as a reimbursable meal according to state and federal guidelines. In an effort to keep a child on a regular meal program, the school will contact parents by sending a notice home with their child when their account balance is $10.00 or less. After May 1 of each school year, there will be no charges permitted and outstanding accounts will require payment in full.

Cafeteria Services

Our cafeterias serve breakfast and lunch every school day with a fresh menu selection.

 

Online PrePayment System

With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, the Durant Public School District’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time through MySchoolBucks. Also, parents will have the ability to print a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days. We are very excited to offer these new services, and are confident this new system will benefit you, your child and our District.

 

A La Carte

At Durant Middle School and Durant High School, students have the option of choosing a la carte menu items as well as the standard cafeteria choices.
