It is our expectation that students always have a positive balance in their lunch accounts. As a courtesy to our families, Roncalli has established a “$20.00 limit” on negative charging. If your student’s account is more than $20.00 in the negative, they will be asked to take their lunches and come to the cafeteria office. There the student will meet with a supervisor to discuss the problem and come up with a solution. Seniors may not pick up their cap and gowns until all negative balances are cleared.


It is easy to set up a notification with Mealtime to receive an email when the accounts are low, to avoid the time taken away from their already short lunch periods to deal with inadequate funding. We will also be sending negative lunch balance notifications out every day by e-mail.
