Meal Charge Policy
All families are asked to complete a meal eligibility application every year. Families can find assistance with applying for free or reduced price school meals by contacting the front office.
For families who don’t qualify for free and reduced price school meals, OSA charges meals at the time of service and by pre-payment. Payment can be made by check, cash or via PayPal.
OSA strongly encourages families to prepay for their children’s meals with a check.
If families need assistance with paying for their children’s meals they can contact the front office about resources.
