The National Hot Lunch Program which provides familes with subsidized lunch duringd the school day is not an available option for Alpha Learning Academy students. Our locally prepared school lunch may be purchased at a cost of $3.00 per day. Reduced lunch and Free lunch are a part of the National School Lunch Program and are not available.
Families have the option of paying by cash or by check or money order made payable to Alpha Learning Academy. During the lunch period, unless a parent is having lunch with their student, food may not be dropped off from an outside source.
As a reminder, your student may bring a bag lunch from home; however, use of the microwave is not permitted, therefore lunches brought from home will not be heated due to liability.
If a student has forgotten his or her lunch and has no money for lunch payment, he or she may charge a $3.00 hot lunch to their financial account. Charged lunch balances may not exceed $12.00 and must be paid in full to resume eligibility to receive a hot lunch thereafter.
If a student is not eligible to receive a hot lunch & forgets his or her lunch & has no money for lunch payment; he or she will be provided an emergency lunch which may consist of Peanut Butter & Jelly or Cheese Sandwich, fruit and milk. Parents(s) are encouraged to notify the Administration if they encounter challenges with providing lunch for their children during the school day.
