IMPORTANT NEWS... From the Kitchens at Grass Lake Community Schools.............
Hello to our Grass Lake Families.
We will be sending out low balance emails to students and adults to get negative balances paid. When our lunches became free last year during the shutdown, some accounts were left with a unpaid balance. We must get these accounts paid before the end of May.
If you find that you or your student has a negative balance, please pay this as soon as possible by sending a check or cash into your students' school office, or send payment with your student(s) to give to their teacher. If you have an account already set up with SchoolPay, then you could use this service if you choose. (NOTE: You will be charged a service fee for using this product. No change will be given, any funds left over will be added to the student's lunch account.
Grass Lake Schools will continue to provide free meals during the summer break (schedule will be coming out later this month.) Please make sure your balances are paid so we can continue to provide these free meals to the community.
