The food service department will be sending out automated phone calls, twice a week, to student's parents/guardians, with low or negative balances.

Charge Policy
Students use their lunch account to purchase breakfast, lunch and food items once money has been deposited into their account. This policy is designed for the convenience of the parents and students. We know that things get forgotten, so we allow elementary students to charge A SCHOOL MEAL ONLY.

  • Capac Elementary : up to four (4) times (a total of $10.40)
  • Capac Jr/Senior High School: NO CHARGING
  • A La Carte selections are not allowed to be charged.

After four (4) charges, elementary students will still receive a cheese sandwich, a piece of fruit, serving of vegetable and a milk until they pay their charges. They will not go without eating. Parents do have the option of not allowing their child to charge at all. If this is chosen, they will have to borrow money, call home, or bring a lunch from home.

After Spring Break we cut off all charging and request that parents pay off all debt owed before the end of the school year.

All charges not paid before the end of the school year will be carried forward into the next school year, even if your child switches buildings. We reserve the right to transfer funds and balances between members of the same household.

Jr/Senior High school students who owe money at the end of the year will be subject to the same policies as when they have fines and lost books.

Capac Schools will not accept Canadian money to pay for lunches. Nor will we accept francs, yen or any other foreign currency.

Check Cashing Policy

WE DO NOT CASH CHECKS at any of the Food Service locations within the district, we do not cash checks into cash for students. The entire amount that the check is written for is put into your student's account. We cannot accept third party checks. It is easier for cashiers to accept a check written for one account, but we will divide up a check into different accounts if requested. PLEASE MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE TO: Capac Food Service

Large Bills

When our cashiers at the Elementary and Jr/Senior High School receive a 20 or 50 bill, we will deposit the entire amount into the students account, not break it and hand them cash back.
