Meal Charging Policy

All APS sites have implemented Offer Versus Serve (OVS), which allows students to decline some of the food offered in a reimbursable lunch or breakfast.

At breakfast, students are offered four components. Students must choose at least three of these items, and one must be a fruit or vegetable.

At lunch, students are offered five components. Students must choose at least three of these components,and one must be a fruit or vegetable.

The student must make sure they get a USDA reimbursable meal for the meal to be considered free. If not, the items will be rung up a la carte.

Breakfast/Lunch Infographic

If a student wants to purchase an extra breakfast meal or lunch meal, money must be on the student's meal account.

If you have any questions, please call 989-358-5021 or 989-358-5020 between 6:30 AM and 2:45 PM.

Meal Information is Online!

Parents can view student meal activity and account balances for their children using a secure website. The system requires parents to create a user account. Users must provide e-mail address, password, student name(s), student ID numbers as well as the student's date of birth. They will then receive an email from MealMagic with a temporary password allowing them access to the account(s).

Breakfast Is Important! Did you know that students who eat breakfast are able to perform better in school? Research confirms that students who eat breakfast do better in reading and math, are able to be better problem-solvers, and are able to behave and concentrate better than students who haven't eaten. Alpena Public Schools has been serving school breakfast since 1984!
