Cafeteria Information

We are pleased to inform you that Fairmont Junior High will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called Community Eligibility Program (CEP) for School Year 2015- 2016. Schools that participate in the CEP are able to provide a healthy breakfast and a lunch each day at no charge for ALL students enrolled and participating in the breakfast and/or lunch program at the CEP school during the 2015-2016 School Year.

No further action is required of you if your student will be attending Fairmont Junior High next school year. All Fairmont Junior High students will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.

If your child currently has a balance in their Food Service Account, we ask you to consider leaving some funds in the account until you are assured your student has sufficient funds to purchase any ala carte items. Each meal offered includes milk, fruit, vegetables, and a choice of entrée. If your student brings a lunch from home or wants additional items, there is a charge for milk, extra fruit or vegetables, or second entrees.

Funds can also be transferred to your other students’ accounts at other schools or can be donated to assist other students in our District who have negative balances and are unable to pay their charges. Refund/Transfer/Donation Forms can be picked up at the Cafeteria anytime throughout the school year or from the Food & Nutrition Services Office at the District Services Center at 8169 W. Victory Road. Please contact the Food & Nutrition Services Office at 208-854-4090 for further assistance.
