New lunch system called Point of Sale- children will get their lunch as usual. D75 kids are free always. Breakfast is always free for all kids. D15 kids lunch is either free, half price or they pay the full amount. The milk distribution is different. It used to be that kids could grab a milk. Now milk costs 25 cents. Parents should get a My School Bucks account. School will give families their student’s 9 digit ID number.
