Reminder from the Rocklin Unified School District Food Service Department! You can check the status of your student's meal account eligibility if you have completed a Free and Reduced-Priced Meal application or if they are automatically eligible because of enrollment in the CalFresh, CalWORKs or McKinney Vento programs by going to our new online link to SchoolLunchStatus.com. Go to the Rocklin Unified District website, choose the District Info tab, click on Departments, Food Services and choose the School Lunch Status link on the home page. If you have not completed an application for the new school year you can choose the Heartland Apps link and fill one out online or choose the Meal Application icon and download a printable one. If you do not have access to e-mail or a printer, applications can be picked up at any District location. You may also request to have one mailed to you by replying to this e-mail or by calling 916-624-1112 extension 1.
Please complete only one application per family. We look forward to serving your student this school year. Thank you.
ONLINE FREE AND REDUCED PRICE MEAL APPLICATION OPTION!
You may now apply for Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits online! You may also check your eligibility determination and print your letter on School Lunch Status website! We are pleased to announce that online application processing for the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program for Free and Reduced-Priced Meals is accessible through HeartlandApps.com. Please read the Parent Letter attached below for further information. Printable versions of the application will also be available on the link at the bottom of this page and at the all school offices, the District Office and the main Nutrition Services Office any time throughout the year, or they can be mailed to you by a phone or email request to the Nutrition Services office at 624-1112 Ext. 1 or email@example.com. Completed applications may be dropped off at all locations as well or mailed to our department office address listed below. They will be processed in a timely manner (up to 10 days) but until an eligibility determination is made, and a letter is sent to the parent/guardians, the student is required to pay full price. Students who were on the program in this school district the prior school year are given a 30 school day grace period at the start of the new school year at their prior eligibility. If your child was on the program in another district, please contact our office for further instructions. Children participating in the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program will not be overtly identified by the use of any special means.
NOTE: Acceptance in this program no longer qualifies students for free or reduced bus passes. You must now complete a separate Transportation 'income' application. Please call the Transportation Department for further information - (916) 624-9106.
LUNCH ACCOUNT Pre-Payment Options
Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts.
Student Accounts and Payment Methods:
All students are given a lunch account which is accessed by the cashier by the student giving their first and last name. Students who qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program follow the same procedure so there is no overt identification. Lunches are served on a cash or pre-paid basis. Parent/guardians may prepay for lunches in advance online at www.mySchoolBucks.com (see attached letter for more information) or in the front office daily. In the event of forgotten lunch money, students may charge a lunch to their account, but must bring payment promptly.
When their account becomes $10.00 overdrawn, a student will only be given a courtesy meal consisting of crackers and a piece of whole fruit until the account is paid and prepayment funds are paid. A notice will be sent home with the student when there are 2 lunches left, 1 lunch left or they are out of money or overdrawn on their account. If you have any questions regarding the food services department, please call 624-1112.
Send Check or Cash:
As Always, you can bring money personally or send it with your student. If you are sending in cash, please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's first and last name and the dollar amount. For checks, please make the check out to Rocklin Elementary School and write your child’s first and last name in the memo section at the bottom.
Free and Reduced Lunch:
Applications are available online. Online application
