JTHS will participate in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program during the 2021-22 school year through a USDA waiver received by the Illinois State Board of Education.  School districts that participate in the SSO program can offer breakfast and lunch reimbursable meals to students free of charge regardless of family income or status.  Participation in this program does not automatically qualify families for a school fee waiver.  The online Free and Reduced Meal Application should be completed to determine waiver eligibility.  Ala carte items and additional meals can be purchased at the paid student rate (See Cashless System below). 

All students will receive a full reimbursable lunch and breakfast meal during the 2021-22 school year. Had JTHS not been eligible for the USDA waiver listed above, students would pay $3.10 for a full lunch meal and $2.00 for a full breakfast.  Students that qualify for reduced price meals through the Free and Reduced Meal application process would pay $.40 for a full lunch and $.30 for a full breakfast.  Directly certified students (SNAP, TANF, FOSTER, MEDICAID) or students that meet the criteria for free meals through the meal application process would receive a full lunch and breakfast at no cost.  The district participates in the National School Lunch Program and is monitored by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Will County Health Department. Parents and students must create a pre-paid account through the MySchoolBucks web site. By prepaying, parents can assure lunch money is being used for school meals, reduce worries about forgetting or losing money, limit the amount used each day and specify if additional food can be purchased. Cash is not accepted in the cafeteria. Students must use the MySchoolBucks system. Refunds will be issued based on the refund policy. Menus change on a daily basis, although some items are available each day.
