You may also pay into an account for your student with cash or check sent to the school.
If paying with cash at elementary school, put it in a sealed envelope with your student’s first
and last name on it. Also, please write the teacher's name and grade on the outside of the envelope.
When paying by check, write your student's (first and last) name on the check. If you know your
student's Cobb County ID number, put it on the check, too. Use a separate check for each child to
ensure that the correct amount of money is applied to each child's account.
Please make sure your child has money for lunch every day. If you need to know how much money is
on your child’s account, you may call or email the school’s Café Manager. The cashier can also tell
your student the account balance.
Cobb County school administration has adopted a limited charge policy. If a student arrives at
school without money, they are allowed up to $6.75 in charges at elementary school and $5.00 at middle
school. Charges are not allowed for a la carte, adults, or at high school.
For elementary and middle school only, if your child arrives at school without money for lunch
and has reached the charge limit, he/she will be provided an alternate meal (such as a peanut butter
sandwich and milk, or a cheese sandwich and milk). No alternate meal will be provided for breakfast.
To prevent your child from having to receive an alternate meal, please ensure that you send money for
your student's meals each day, or prepay for the meals in advance.
Charging for meals will not be allowed during the last two weeks of the school year. If your
elementary or middle school child arrives at school without money, the student will be provided the
alternate meal for lunch.
If you have a student leaving the Cobb County School District, any remaining funds in their meal account can either be transferred to another sibling in the district, or refunded. To request a refund or funds transfer, please contact the cafeteria manager at your student’s school or call the Food and Nutrition Services central office at 770-426-3380 for assistance.
