Big Sandy ISD currently has an $8.00 maximum charging policy due to excessive charging in previous years. Your child will receive a negative balance letter to show what their balance is. If your child reaches that amount they will be given a ham & cheese sandwich, a fruit and a milk or a cup for water as an alternative meal. We are offering an alternative meal because we feel it is important that students not be denied access to a meal during the school day. Money can be placed on your students account at any time. We strongly encourage payment online or by check as the most secure way to transport payment between home and school. Free or reduced price meal applications may be submitted at anytime during the school year. If you would like an application or if there are any questions please feel free to contact Joan Ford, Food Service Director at 903-636-5287 ext. 230.
