DeWitt Public Schools Charge Policy
It is the responsibility of the parents to provide lunch for their children while at school. However, it is important to provide that children receive the nutrition they need to stay focused during the school day. This procedure shall apply in the event that a child neither has a meal nor the funds to purchase a meal. Dewitt Public Schools Food Service Department will offer meals that meet the USDA school guidelines.
The school meals program is a debit program. Students will be allowed to receive a reimbursable lunch and breakfast if their meal account is negative. However, students wo have negative meal accounts cannot charge extra entrees, or any ala carte items. The point-of-sale system tracks all charges and payments.
Money can be deposited into student's accounts by putting money in an envelope with the child's name and depositing at their school or by setting up an account at https://dewitt.familyportal.cloud/. In addition, parents can send a check or money order to Dewitt High School; Attn: Food Service Dept., PO Box 800, Dewitt, MI 48820. All parents who have supplied an email will receive a low balance notice daily. At the discretion of the Food Service Director, a school or private service fund may be established to pay for student's charged meals. The Food Service Director will work with each Principal to determine a payment schedule for these meals.
