- Elementary School - When a student’s account is at negative $20 or more, the child will not be allowed to charge any snacks, drinks or a la carte items on their account.
- Middle School - When a student’s account is at negative $20 or more, the child will not be allowed to charge any snacks, drinks or a la carte items on their account.
