Hot Lunch Make-Up Policy for School Cancellations

If GRACE is closed for a snow day, hurricane day, or other unexpected/unplanned reason on a day when you have ordered a hot lunch for your student, a make-up day will be included on the next ordering cycle.

In an ordering cycle that includes a make-up day, the day will be designated as an INCLEMENT WEATHER MAKE-UP DAY for the date that is being made up. The same meal that was missed will be ordered on this day and no new orders will be accepted. If there is more than one missed day, there will be an equal number of make-up days included in the next ordering cycle.

Please note that the make-up day will not necessarily be the same day of the week as the missed day. Due to the limitations of FACTS, the make-up day will not show up as a purchased day on the calendar; you will need to make note of it.

Hot Lunch Ordering Windows

Each month an “ordering window” opens, allowing you to place a hot lunch order for the next month. Make sure you place your order by 4:00 pm on the last day of the window to ensure that your student will receive hot lunch in the designated month.
