We are pleased to announce that beginning Wednesday, July 31, 2019 the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program Free and Reduced–Price Meal Application online processing will be accessible through www.HeartlandApps.com. You may also download a printable version of the application to complete and return to your school's front office. A hardcopy will be available for pick up in the school office. Please complete only one application per family and return by mail or drop off at:
RUSD Nutrition Services Dept.
4090 Del Mar Ave., Suite A
Rocklin, CA 95677
Your application will be processed and eligibility status will be available no later than 10 days after receipt. You can check the status of your student's meal account eligibility if you have completed a Free and Reduced-Priced Meal application or if they are automatically eligible because of enrollment in the CalFresh, CalWORKs or McKinney-Vento programs by going to SchoolLunchStatus.com. If your child was on the program last year in this district, there is a thirty business day grace period at your old eligibility before you will lose benefits Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
BREAKFAST is not served at the Turnstone campus.
Prepay your student's meal account
All students are given a lunch account which is accessed by the cashier by the student giving their first and last name. Students who qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program follow the same procedure so there is no overt identification. Lunches are served on a cash or pre-paid basis. Parent/guardians may prepay for lunches in advance online at www.mySchoolBucks.com or in the front office daily. In the event of forgotten lunch money, students may charge a lunch to their account, but must bring payment promptly.
Check or Cash:
As always, you can bring money personally or send it with your student. If you are sending in cash, please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's first and last name and the dollar amount. Please make the check out to Ruhkala Elementary and write your child’s first and last name in the memo section at the bottom.
