Re-Imagining Education......Inspiring Inquiry Through Innovative Learning

A Few Things to Think About When Considering Meals at CIJS:

  • Breakfast:  We will stop serving food at 8:50 am. If you do not qualify for free meals, a reduced breakfast is .30 cents.  Full price meal is $1.75 (We do not serve breakfast to preschool students.) However, you may purchase breakfast or bring your own IF you attend the VPK wrap program and arrive before 8:00 AM.
  • Lunch:  If you do not qualify for free lunch, a reduced lunch is .40 cents.  Full price is $3.25.
    • Please know that if your child has food in their lunch box that we are going to assume that it is their lunch. If you intend on it being a snack only and you want them to purchase lunch, then please make sure you inform your teacher so they can ensure that they go through the lunch line.  (Preschool wrap students may purchase lunch or pack)
  • Extended Care Snacks (Elementary):  All students in the afterschool program (Pre-k- 8th grade) get a snack and it is included in your tuition.
  • Extended Care Snacks (VPK Wrap):  All students in the VPK Wrap program get an afternoon snack and it is included in your tuition. CIJS does not provide a morning snack, but you may bring one if you choose. Discuss this with your child’s teacher.

In order to purchase meals, you will need to make a “My School Bucks” account  to purchase meals. If you already have an account at another school or in the Osceola County School District, you will need a NEW account with us. DO NOT use a MY SCHOOL BUCKS account from any other school! When making your account, please use HEALTHY FOOD COLLABORATIVE, FL as the school district.  Once you make your account you will choose Creative Inspiration Journey School as your school.  Click on the picture above to create your account or to add funds.

CIJS Contracted With SLA as our food service provider.  Please contact them if you have any questions about the meals. 

Unpaid Meal Charge Policy

A student that does not have money on their lunch account, will be allowed to charge up to $10.00. Upon reaching that balance, your child will be offered a non-reimbursable snack until the account is replenished.  That snack will consist of either cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers or a snack bar and juice.  Breakfast will not be offered until the account is brought back to a positive state.
Parents/Guardians can check current balance on “My School Bucks Account”.
Students approved for free meals cannot be denied a meal, even if they have a negative balance on other cafeteria purchases.
Creative Inspiration Journey School will prevent overt identification of children eligible for free, reduced price, and paid meals.
Creative Inspiration Journey School will provide a written copy of the policy to all households and transfer households.
