Announcement for End-of-year Account Balance Round-up from Rich Friedman/ School Nutrition Director

As we finish up April and quickly approach the final weeks of school in May, the Cafeteria Managers at each school have the unenviable task of trying to collect payment owed for meals served during the year. This is not a pleasant job and we don’t enjoy it –BUT like any business we have to collect what’s owed or we risk not covering our expenses. This, in turn, makes it difficult to continue to offer the best food and service that we can. We at Commerce City Schools Nutrition Department are proud of our program and enthusiastic participation from students and staff on a daily basis bear out the good work we do. There are official penalties and consequences for delinquent accounts but we prefer to ask nicely and depend upon the good will and sense of fair play from the families in our community. As always, if your family has financial issues that make timely payment difficult, give us a call and we will do our best to bring community resources to your aid.
