Lunch Card System
An individual meal account is automatically opened for every child who is enrolled at Ilima Intermediate School.
The account is like a checking account. You/your child will make deposits to the account. Meals will be purchased with these funds.
Deposits are made by cash or check payable to Ilima Intermediate or to a secure on-line system that allows you to make payments to your child’s meal account (FEES APPLY), set low balance alerts, and review your child’s transaction history. In order to use this system, you will need your child’s school ID number (10 digits) which can be found on your child’s report card.
No loans are available and IDs are required to purchase meals.
Students who qualify for Free and Reduced Meals must have monies in their account in order to purchase Ala Carte items.
Account deposits may be made at the Meal Office window in the administration building between 7:10 – 7:45 a.m. daily OR by using the payment envelopes that are available in the front office.
Deposits received on that day will be processed within 24 hours.
1 lunch waiver per month can be extended to a student who has forgotten his/her ID. Students who forget their ID will report to the Time-Out section in the courtyard at recess. The VPs will then issue the waiver. Waivers are not issued to accounts that do not have a balance.
Students must dispose of lunch trays and uneaten food in appropriate receptacles. All lunches and all other food, with the exception of bottled water and bagged cookies, must be consumed in the cafeteria. Students not eating must leave the cafeteria.
Lunch duty is a privilege; students are selected by their teacher. For health and safety reasons students with a contagious disease or with open cuts or sores will not be permitted to work. Students shall stay in their designated work areas assigned by the cafeteria staff.
