Important Notice Regarding Lunch Programs
It is the policy of the Burlington Public Schools to limit the amount of money a child can owe the Burlington School Lunch Program. When the limit is reached the child is given a cheese sandwich and a carton of milk for a charge of $1.75 for lunch for the duration of their negative balance.  
To enable your child to continue to receive a full school lunch you must deposit the missing funds into his/her lunch account. This can be done either online through the PayPams System or by sending in a check to your child's school cafeteria made out to 'Burlington Public Schools Lunch."
If you have any questions please call Karen Damaso, Food Service Coordinator at 781-270-1756.
