Student Accounts

Meal Times:

Breakfast: All Grades: 7:45-8:10am

Lunch: Varies by Grade Level. The 40-minute lunch period includes time for lunch and lunch recess.

Meal Accounts:

Massac County School District utilizes a prepaid system. When a student’s account falls below -$5.00, the student may be placed on an alternative lunch until the account is brought above a zero balance. Excessive debt to the meal account may be referred to the State’s Attorney for collection.


Meal Pricing:

Beginning the 2020/2021 school year, Massac Unit #1 was approved for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for school breakfast and lunch. Under the CEP program, all students receive free meals regardless of their household income.

Healthy Changes in the School Cafeteria

Unit #1 school cafeterias are continuing to meet tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced, and provide students all of the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!

School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. School lunches will meet additional standards requiring:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits

  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)

  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes

  • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)

  • More whole grains

  • And less sodium

We're always working to offer Massac Unit#1 students healthier and tastier choices. The Food Service Staff will be assisting in planning each month's Healthy Menu. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! Make plans now to eat a Healthy School Breakfast and Lunch.

The Cafeteria Staff looks forward to welcoming your children to the school cafeteria. To find out more about Massac Unit #1 healthy meals, visit the Massac Unit #1 web page at www.massac.org. To get the facts about healthy school meals, visit www.TrayTalk.org.
