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 lunch nor the funds to purchase a lunch.

Students are allowed to charge one (1) meal on their account. If a student does not have adequate funds and has reached the charge limit, they will be provided an alternative cheese sandwich with fruit, vegetable and a choice of milk. 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 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 when their student reaches $5.00 positive balance and under.

At the discretion of the Food Service Director, a school or private service fund may be established to pay for student’s charged meals, rather than to offer the alternative meal. The Food Service Director will work with each Principal to determine a payment schedule for these meals.
