What happens if my student's account has no money and my child forgot to bring in their payment?

The Cary School District 26 NEGATIVE ACCOUNT BALANCE Policy is as follows:
 
Elementary: Students are allowed to charge lunches to their accounts until their account balance reaches negative $10. If a minimum deposit of $10 is not made into the account, a federally reimbursable meal will be served.  The student's account will still be charged for that lunch (students participating in the Free program will not be charged and students receiving reduced price meals will be charged $.40).  They will continue to receive one federally reimbursable meal until all outstanding charges (IOUs) are paid in full and the account has a positive balance.
 
Cary Junior High: Students are allowed to charge lunches to their accounts until their account balance reaches negative $10. If a minimum deposit of $10 is not made into the account, a federally reimbursable meal will be served.  The student's account will still be charged for that lunch (students participating in the Free program will not be charged and students receiving reduced price meals will be charged $.40).  They will continue to receive a federally reimbursable meal until all outstanding charges (IOUs) are paid in full and the account has a positive balance.
 
Please note: Second lunches, snack shop, ala carte, and ice cream purchases are not allowed by any student who has a negative balance.
 

Federally Reimbursable Meal (FRM) includes:
1/2 cup of fruit, 1-2 oz. of grain, 3/4 cup of vegetables, 1-2 oz. of meat/meat alternative, and 8 oz. of milk. At least 3 components of which one must be either fruit or vegetables or 1/2 fruit and 1/2 vegetable can = one component.
