May 6th - 10th is School Nutrition Employee Appreciation Week

May 6th-10th is designated to honor our hardworking School Nutrition Program professionals!  As valuable members of the team they are recognized for all the important school nutrition tasks completed each day.  Between preparing healthy meals for Fulton County School students, adhering to strict nutrition standards, ensuring food safety, and offering service with a smile, School Nutrition Professionals are true superheroes!  Please take a moment the week of May 6th-10th to recognize your school nutrition employees for all of their hard work ensuring safe and nutritious meals are served every day!

Outstanding Charges & Student Refunds

Outstanding Charges: The School Nutrition Program asks that all outstanding charges be paid before the end of the school year.  Schools may accept cash and checks at the school cafeteria or money can be applied to the students account via credit card at www.mypaymentsplus.com.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Student Refunds: Any pre-paid balances will follow the students to their next Fulton County School year, even if changing schools within the district.  If wishing to withdraw remaining funds, students/parents can request a refund from the School Nutrition Manager until May 23, 2013.  Note: if refund exceeds available cash at the school site, the manager will submit a request to School Nutrition Program Accounting.  After May 23, 2013, students/parents can contact the School Nutrition Department at 404-669-8960.
