District 105 Food Service
The District 105 food service program offers tasty, reasonably priced meals to students. All meals meet the criteria and regulations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Illinois State Board of Education. While lunches are served by the district, it is the parent's/guardian's responsibility to see that their child has lunch each day. Students may bring their own sack lunch, or purchase hot lunch at school.
Pre-Paid Lunch Plan: Please note that students are to use a pre-paid process to purchase lunches. Parents should deposit with the school office pre-paid funds to cover lunch. Lunch is $3.09. Milk only is $0.30. Reduced price qualified students must have pre-paid funds for the reduced price of $0.40 per lunch. Students who qualified to receive a free lunch do not have to have pre-paid funds.
Pre-Paid Breakfast Plan: Gurrie, Hodgkins and Ideal Schools also offer breakfast for $2.24. The charge for reduced price qualified students is $0.30. Students who qualified to receive a free lunch do not have to have pre-paid funds.

Viewing Student Lunch Transactions and Balances: Parents can always view their student's lunch balance and transactions by logging on to the PowerSchool Parent Portal on the top menu bar under QUICK LINKS. Once in PowerSchool, click on the dollar sign ($) on the left of the student's screen.
Adding Lunch Funds to Your Student Account: Parents can add funds to their student's pre-paid lunch balance by sending/bringing a check to your student's school office. The school office will also accept cash (please do not mail cash). Parent's can also add funds through the District 105 Web Store by clicking HERE to go to the informational page or HERE to go directly to the Web Store. The online Web Store accepts debit cards or VISA, MasterCard and Discover credit cards.
Automated Calls/Emails: Parents/Guardians whose student's lunch balances fall in arrears by more than $12.50 will recieve automated phone calls/emails from the District office weekly until the balance is paid, In addition, lunch balances appear on progress reports and report cards. Negative balances will be highlighted. Parents/Guardians whose student's lunch balances fall seriously in arrears will be contacted personally by the school principal if the account is not replenished within two weeks. If the account is still not not replenished within a week, then the matter will be forwarded to the District office, which will then contact the parent/guardian. Although the school will try to help parents/guardians keep on top of the students' balances, it is ultimately a parent's/guardian's responsibility to monitor their student's lunch balance.
