Cafeteria Information

Cafeteria Information

Children need nutritious meals to learn. Sheridan Community Schools offer healthy meals every school day that meet the federal guidelines of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Your student may purchase breakfast, lunch and/or healthy snacks. Sheridan schools use a computerized prepay/debit system. The computerized system will allow parent(s)/guardian(s) and students to deposit funds in advance of use. Any funds left at the end of the year transfer to the following school year.

Each student has been assigned a meal account in which to deposit money for their purchases. Students are assigned a number to access this account.
The cafeteria staff encourages a prepayment plan. Deposits may be made online at Checks and cash are also accepted for student food service accounts. At the elementary school, money is collected in the room and sent to the cafeteria to be deposited. At the middle and high school, money is deposited at the point of service. We encourage the use of checks as a receipt, and we ask that you please write the students name or number on the memo line.

For your convenience, meal prices for the 2017/2018 school year will be:
Student Breakfast $1.50
Adult/Visitor Breakfast $1.75
Elementary Lunch $2.35
Middle/High Lunch $2.45
Adult/Visitor Lunch $3.50

Students and parent(s)/guardian(s) are encouraged to keep track of account balances. The cafeteria staff will make every effort to inform of low or negative balances. Our recommended mode of communication is through email; therefore, please ensure the school has an updated email address on file. Please note that there is a charge limit at the Sheridan schools, and if you do not want your child to purchase extra food, please notify the cafeteria. For more information please review our Procedures for Student Meal Accounts found on our school website.

Our school also reviews Direct Certification.  This is a federal program where our student roster is matched with federal programs. If your child/children qualify, you will receive a confirmation by August 7th. If after August 7th you have not received information and wish to apply for assistance with meals and textbooks, an application will be available online after July 1st at You may also pick up an application in the school office, or cafeteria office.
