Our Schools

Menus

School menus on all levels are created to not only taste great, but offer healthy and nutritious options to all students. Following nutritional regulations and guidelines set by both the USDA and the SC State Department of Education, each menu item is nutritionally analyzed to ensure that it meets all criteria.

Richland Two Food Services strives to offer the healthiest options, while also providing meals that students can enjoy. Elementary School students dine at the Kid's Way Cafe. While Middle School and High School students enjoy more options at the DYK Cafe and Crossroads Cafe, respectively. For more information about the meals, please visit the SodexoMyWay website.

Meal Payment Procedures (Policy AR EF-R)

General Policy

The purpose of this procedure is to establish guidelines for the payment for cafeteria meals and the collection of debts for full pay and reduced meal rate students. It is applicable to all schools within Richland School District Two.

Method of Payment

Money may be added to a student’s account at any time.  Parents may pay in advance. Payments may be made through the Parent Portal on the District Two website . Additionally, payment may be made by check in the cafeteria. The use of cash is strongly discouraged.

Student Charging Policies

If a student has not pre-paid for a meal, the following charge procedure may be utilized:

Elementary and Middle Schools
 
Students in elementary and middle schools will be allowed to charge up to $10 on their account. Parents will be notified through a phone call, text, or email after their account reaches a negative balance of $10. If you would like to receive notifications before your account reaches negative $10 you can opt in to receiving messages for lower amounts.

Once students begin to have a negative balance on their accounts, cafeteria managers will begin warning students that they have insufficient funds in their account. The cafeteria manager will send home written notices of negative balances once a month. If the parents fail to make arrangements to settle the debt by the next Wednesday, the Cafeteria Manager will request that a school administrator contact the parents giving them five working days to make arrangements to settle the debt. The cafeteria manager will provide weekly reports to the school principal for accounts with negative balances. The school principal will work with the cafeteria manager to ensure that all students do not have a negative balance. The school principal has the authority to not allow students with negative balances to participate in school related activities. If debt remains unpaid, the Executive Director of Operations and the Chief Financial Officer will begin collection efforts by sending the parents to a collection agency. 

No elementary or middle school meal shall ever be taken and dumped in the trash in front of students.  No elementary or middle school student will be denied a meal.
High School and Adults
 
High School students and Adults will not be allowed to charge however, they may pre-pay for meals.
 
Cashiers should use discretion when a high school student has insufficient funds in their account to pay the full price of a meal and may allow a partial charge. Cashiers should not allow high school students to charge the full price for a meal. No food should ever be taken and dumped in the trash in front of students. The trays should be taken to the kitchen for disposal.
