Whether the meal is purchased at full price, reduced, or at no cost to the parents.



  •     Water and Ice from the dispensers are free at all meals. 

 We accept cash or checks (make sure to include a phone number).  Or if you prefer, you can prepay online at My Payment Plus.  As stated above Sumner County allows charges for middle schools of meals up to 3 days worth of meals (breakfast + lunch x 3) = $14.25 for full priced meals and $2.10 for reduced meals.
