Meal charge policy 

Although payment for school meals is typically due at the time of the sale (through a prepaid balance, cash or some other means), Queensbury Union Free School District recognizes that at times, students are unable to make this payment for a variety of reasons. The district has established a school meal charge policy to provide clear information about how these situations will be handled, including steps designed to avoid any embarrassment of children.

Wellness policy

The QUFSD Board of Education recognizes that a nutritious, well-balanced, reasonably-portioned diet is essential for student wellness. To help students possess the knowledge and skills necessary to make nutritious food choices for a lifetime, the district shall ensure that all foods and beverages available for sale to students on the school campus during the school day meet or exceed the program requirements and nutrition standard found in federal regulations.
