Pueblo School District 60 serves breakfast and lunch meals free of charge at all schools and a la carte items can be purchased where available. For students that regularly purchase a la carte items, pre-payment is a convenient and easy way to purchase snacks and meals.

- To encourage parents to assume responsibility for meal payments and to promote self-responsibility of the student;
- To treat all students with dignity in the serving line regarding meal accounts;
- To establish policies that are age appropriate;
- To establish a consistent district policy regarding charges and collection of charges;
- Charging is not allowed at any grade level.
MEAL PROGRAM COMPUTER SYSTEM
Nutrition Services uses the MCS computerized Point of Sale System that operates like a debit account. Students must prepay into their account and access their money by entering an account code into a pin pad. The manager can also help the child look up their account at the computer terminal.
Students must prepay for additional food
- No cash will be accepted on the serving line in grades K-5
- Prepayments are accepted via cash or check in the school cafeteria before 10:00 am.
- Make checks payable to Nutrition Services and write your child’s name on the memo line.
- This process has been established so that all students use the same method of exchange.
- Receipts are available on request
Parents may control how money is spent. Parents may designate if their child is not allowed to spend account money on a la carte food items.
As an additional courtesy to parents, they may request a report showing when deposits were made and when the student ate meals.
