Lunch Accounts


The Chippewa Falls School District uses Infinite Campus for their lunch program.  Information on account balances, payments and purchases is available through the parent portal.  Each student has their own lunch account.  The amount of the purchase is subtracted from an account on a daily basis.  The system is a pre-paid system; money must be deposited into the account prior to the purchase of meals.

Payment can be made several different ways.

Money may be deposited to your account by:

  • Online via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. All payments are over a secure connection, there is no charge for making online payments, and the money is immediately available for the students.
  • Sending payment to school with students; elementary students may give payment to teacher or school secretary; middle school students can bring payment to the office or pay during breakfast/lunch; and high school students can pay in the cafeteria during lunch
  • Mailing payment to the district office at 1130 Miles St.
  • Dropping off payment at the district office; a secure night box is available after hours

All payments will be split equally between all students in the household unless specified at the time of payment.  Money will only be transferred between accounts at the request of parents.  Please contact Peggy McKillip at 715-726-2581.

Account Balances


You may check your account activity and balances online through the infinite campus parent portal or by contacting Peggy McKillip at 726-2581.  Students can also check balances when purchasing meals.

An automated messaging system is also used to alert families when account balances are low.

If a student's account does not have adequate funds to purchase a meal an alternative lunch consisting of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a carton of milk will be provided.  No ala carte purchases will be allowed at the high school if adequate funds are not available (cash payment is accepted).

General Information


Menus

The healthy hungry free kids act has brought many changes to the Chippewa Falls School District.  Through a validation process in the Spring of 2013 we were certified to be in compliance with the new meal pattern regulations.  This means that our menus meet the requirements for calories, fat, saturated fat and are trans fat free.  It also insures that our menus provide a balance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein sources. 

Buying Local

The CFSD strives to buy many local products to use in our menus.  Through a partnership with our foodservice distributor we buy local produce such as apples, watermelon, green peppers, tomatoes, carrots and many more.  We additionally buy many other menu items from companies located in Wisconsin.  Some of these include Jennie-O turkey, Brakebush chicken and Best Maid cookies.

Meal Requirements

As part of the healthy hunger free kids act the USDA requires that all meals selected by students contain certain components.  All students must choose a 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable at lunch.  Students must also choose at least 3 of the 5 meal components offered at lunch.  The meal components are meat/protein, bread/grain, fruit, vegetable and milk.  Each meal component also must be a minimum size as specified by the USDA.  Students are also required to have 3 meal components at breakfast.  New this school year student must also choose 1/2 cup fruit at breakfast.  Any student who refuses to take the required fruit/vegetable or adequate components will be charged a la carte pricing for each item on their tray.

 

 

 

Meal Price for 2016-17

Regulations require that we increase meal prices yearly until we match rates of federal reimbursement. 

$2.25 Elementary Lunch                        $0.35 Elementary Breakfast

$2.50 Middle School                               $0.85 Middle School Breakfast

$2.50 High School Lunch                       $1.00 High School Breakfast

$3.25 Adult Lunch                                  $1.65 Adult Breakfast                        

*Those qualifying for free/reduced lunch receive lunch and breakfast at no cost. 

 

Any student who refuses to take the required fruit or vegetable will be charged the a la carte price for each item on their tray (instead of regular student meal price).  The additional cost covers the difference in federal reimbursement the district would have received if they had taken a reimbursable meal.

 

We are dedicated to providing quality nutritious meals that students will enjoy and choose to eat. We hope you will encourage your students to try new fruits and vegetables. Feel free to join us for a meal at school to see the changes for yourself. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Susan Lang 715-726-2790 or Melissa Panchyshyn 715-726-2406 ext 1151.
