Student Wellness Policy
The Alamance-Burlington Board of Education recognizes that it is important for students to maintain their physical health and receive proper nutrition in order to take advantage of educational opportunities.
Lunch Application and Benefits
If your child received free or reduced meal benefits in the 2019-2020 school year, they will keep their free or reduced status for the first 30 days of the 2020-2021 school year.
Each year a NEW application must be submitted. Once it is processed, you will receive a letter from the Child Nutrition department stating the student's eligibility. Charges may occur if a new application is not submitted.
If a new application is submitted, and their meal status changes, the new status goes into effect.
The last day to use prior meal benefit is as follows:
- Traditional: 9/30/2020
- Early College: 9/18/2020
Helpful Information for Families
If your child is receiving free or reduced lunch they may be eligible for a fee waiver(s) to be used for college applications/college admissions tests. Contact your school counselor for more information.

Special Dietary Needs
We recognize that some students have special dietary needs due to a medical reason, such as allergy, intolerance or therapeutic diet. In order for the ABSS School Nutrition Department to meet special dietary needs that students may have, we need you to complete a Diet Order form.
If your child has a special diet order or a food allergy, please contact your school nurse for information.

New Charge Policy for High School Students
Effective 2015: No students will be allowed to charge a la carte items in the cafeteria. Parent(s) or guardian(s) of elementary, middle and high school students who must charge meals due to forgotten or lost meal money are responsible for repaying School Nutrition Services (SNS) for those meals within proscribed time periods. High school students will only be allowed to charge up to five (5) reimbursable meals. Once the fifth meal is charged, the high school student will not be allowed to charge additional meals until his or her account is fully paid.
