Covington County Schools is pleased to provide students a wholesome and nutritious breakfast and lunch meal every day.  Meal prices have been established for student breakfast and lunch meals.  Student meals must be paid at the time of purchase or pre-paid in advance.  Cash or checks are accepted.  Covington County Schools does not allow students to charge their breakfast, lunch, or ala carte purchases.  Each family is responsible to ensure their student arrives at school with money or pre-pay in advance.  If a non-sufficient fund check is received twice from the household, only cash will be accepted for meal payments.
