The Food Service Program is a self-sustaining program that requires all users to have a positive balance in their accounts. Somerset School District participates in the National School Lunch Program that provides nutritionally balanced lunches to children each school day.
Applications for free and reduced meals are available prior to the start of each school year. The National School Lunch Program requires families to apply for assistance on an annual basis. Students eligible for free or reduced meals could incur charges for their portion of reduced priced meals or ala carte items such as additional milk or an extra entree.
Parents/guardians have access to all food service information, including balances, transactions, and payment options through Infinite Campus.
Our school building offices are equipped to receive check or cash deposits. Mailed payments should be sent to P.O. Box 100, Somerset, WI 54020. Online payments are made through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Infinite Campus login and password assistance is available through your student's school building secretary.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU DEPOSIT IN YOUR FOOD SERVICE ACCOUNT?
It can be difficult to estimate the amount of money that needs to be deposited into the food service account to cover student meals. A link to a cost estimating tool for the school year is available by clicking on the green calculator icon. To find the appropriate amount of deposit that will cover your family's needs, simply clear the white boxes and enter the data that is relevant for your family.
Since food service accounts are designed to be draw-down accounts whereby monies are to be deposited prior to meals being served, this tool provides assistance determining the amount needed for students to eat school meals for a period of time (weekly, biweekly, monthly, etc.). Accounts with a balance of at least $15 are exempt from the low-account-balance notifications.
Families may also sign up to receive push notifications regarding low food service balances via the Infinite Campus Mobile App. Watch this short video for more information.
