Changes In The FCHS Lunch Program:
Freeburg Community High School will be moving to an automated pay system for lunches, salads, and snacks at the start of this school year. The cashiers in the cafeteria will no longer accept cash purchases during the lunch periods. Instead, students may bring cash or checks to school that will be deposited into their Teacherease account. When a student brings money to school to be added to their lunch account, it should be placed in an envelope with the student’s first and last name as well as their Student ID on the front of the envelope. They may turn the envelope into the main office or to the lunch cashiers during the student’s assigned lunch period. Parents may add money to their student’s account starting at registration.
To access their funds for lunch purchases, students will type their Student ID number into a keypad with the cashier once they have chosen their lunch or snack items. Students with no money in their accounts will still be allowed to purchase the school lunch with a limit not to exceed $7.50 (The cost of two lunches) or $0.80 for reduced. Students with a zero or negative balance will not be able to purchase snacks.
Parents may utilize Teacherease to access their student’s ID numbers and to check their lunch balances.
