Mealpay/Plus for school meals is improved - The online payment system for parents to access cafeteria accounts is "new and improved," according to Mealpay/Plus program contacts. In addition to a new state-of-the-art parent support center, parents also now have the ability to view pending and confirmed payments. Due to the system upgrades, parents will need to register or re-register their account on www.mealpayplus.com - instructions are listed on that website. All account balances and deposits made through Mealpay/Plus through the end of 2007 will reflect on the new account. For those parents not familiar with the system, parents/guardians may go into the Mealpay system to enter money for children for breakfast/lunch meal accounts at anytime. There is a $2 fee per entry. Parents can also check online and see how the child is spending the money. If Parents/Guardians have questions about MealPay's website or telephone functionality or payment process questions, they can call the new MealpayPlus Parent support Center at 1-877-237-0946 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. You don't have to break the bank to enjoy a great meal with us.

Peanut butter and jelly uncrustables, entree salad or yogurt and crackers as a choice of entree along with those listed daily. Domino's and Little Caesar's Pizza served on a rotating basis. MAKE MINE A MUG O'MOO: Choice of milk with all complete meals: Fat-free white, lowfat white, lowfat chocolate. FOUR LEAF CLOVER: People can eat clover (it's a good source of protein), but hard to digest. Some of the meat we eat comes from animals that eat a lot of clover, and is also a favorite source of nectar that bees turn into honey. Just because we don't eat something, that doesn't mean it's not important for us! TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE FOODS WE EAT: Look for ways to get vegetable and fruit servings into your diet so that you can more easily reach 5-9 servings a day. When you add romaine lettuce an a slice or two of tomato to a burger or a sandwich, you're suddenly getting a couple of servings of veggies in your meal.
