Meal Charges

Meal Charges

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Harmony strives each day to provide a safe, caring and collaborative atmosphere for our students. Nutritious meals are available daily for a price of $1.70 for breakfast, $3.00 for lunch, and $0.50 for a la carte milk.

Upon enrollment in Harmony Public Schools, each student is provided a lunch account onto which money may be deposited for breakfast, lunch, or a la carte milk. Money may be deposited by money order in the school office. You may also deposit money online by setting up an account at www.schoolcafe.com. In addition to making payments, you may also arrange for low balance alerts and schedule automatic payments. School Café is available online and as an app for both iPhone and Android devices.

If you would like to apply for free or reduced price meals, the lunch application is available online at www.schoolcafe.com. A paper copy of the application is also available at the school office. A reduced price breakfast is $0.30, and a reduced price lunch is $0.40. Once an application is submitted, the school will mail a letter to the home address within 10 school days with the student’s eligibility.

Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, he/she will be allowed to charge up to –$10.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal. Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk.

Harmony goes to great lengths to communicate with parents about the status of their student’s lunch balance. Parents will be notified when a student’s balance approaches $0. The school will make several additional attempts to contact the parents regarding negative balances prior to the student receiving an alternate meal. Parents may view meal account balances at any time by logging in to their School Café account. Please note that while households later approved for free meals will begin receiving free meals immediately, they are still responsible for paying negative balances accrued on the meal account.

We appreciate your continued support as we work to ensure a safe and productive learning environment for all of our students.

Harmony Giving Day 2017

Harmony College Fund Graphic


Harmony staff, teachers, and administrators have spent countless of hours preparing our students for college and each year approximately 85% of our graduating class enrolled in a post-secondary institution.

But, despite these impressive enrollment numbers, far too many of our low income and first-time college students drop out as they hit financial and circumstantial barriers such as the cost of attending college, that has increased by 36% in the last 10 years. Harmony Public Schools has 5,033 graduates to date and is projected to have 11,686 graduates by 2020, current funding sources are unable to meet even the current demands of these programs. Clearly, additional financial support is required.

We are asking our Harmony community to consider going beyond educational efforts, providing even greater assistance to our graduates through generous Harmony Giving Day contributions to the Harmony College Fund. All your donations will go towards helping our Harmony graduates to complete their higher education dreams and achieve their career aspirations by providing additional scholarships and direct college and career support services.

Let’s come together to reach our target of raising $50,000 on our first ever giving day.

Thank you for your generosity.
