    The Breakfast and Lunch Program at the Obama Schools (4th-8th grade) requires a Student ID to purchase meals. If a student has misplaced their ID they will still be provided meals, but will be asked wait at the end of the line until all students with ID's have been serviced. Replacement ID's will be reprinted at each school, contact the main office for information regarding ID's. 

    In the K-3 buildings classroom teachers will provide meal cards for the students who would like breakfast or lunch. If your students chooses to bring his/her own lunch, they should refrain from taking a meal card.


    • The Skyward Student Data Base system automatically sends email updates when a student’s balance falls below $5.00.

    • If the account goes below $0 and into the negative, the student will be allowed two (2) additional meals (breakfast and lunch count as two (2) separate meals) that will be repaid. After a student receives two (2) additional meals, they will not receive any more meals until the account funds are replenished.

    • When money is received for a student’s account, it will first be applied to cover the negative balance.

    • Once funds are replenished, the student will be served and charged for meals.
