HLSD Bylaws and Policies


The Food Services Department at Highland Local Schools is excited to serve our students and staff seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables grown locally by farmers in Northeast Ohio.

  • Each month, our cafeterias will feature a “Harvest of the Month” fresh food item posted on the menu, including baked apple muffins, fresh peaches, and bread baked with herbs.
  • We will also introduce “sample days” so that students and staff can taste-test items such as fresh spinach with sliced strawberries and locally made tortilla chips. The cafeteria at the elementary schools will also host “group taste tests” to help promote future menu items.
  • Another exciting new addition to our cafeteria offerings this year is “Dough Go’s” cookies from Canton, Ohio. These cookies have no artificial preservatives or flavorings and the coloring comes from spinach, beet juice and pumpkin. They are whole grain and 100% delicious!
  • Lastly, we will feature Boars Head Premium Meats in the “grab and go” sandwiches at the High School and Middle School cafeterias.  

Fare Fare provides these locally grown products ~ “Farm Fare” fills in the gap between local food farmers/producers and Highland Local Schools. Farm Fare created the software to help the food hubs with distribution and logistics. Food hubs (often small warehouses or aggregators) work directly with Northeast Ohio farmers to handle some of the business aspects of selling food. Read more about Farm Fare in the Crain’s Cleveland Business magazine, weekly issue June 25-July 1, 2018. Click HERE.

Keep Up to Date with Your Child's Lunch Account & Activity
There is no fee to view and monitor your child's lunch activity by clicking on the "PaySchools Central" link located on the right hand side of this page. There is a slight transaction fee if you choose to make an on-line payment at this site. Pre-payments can also be made by sending a check or cash with your child to school with your child's name and grade on the outside of the envelope.

Charging a lunch is not permitted. In an emergency only at the Elementary level, should a student not have lunch money the daily lunch will be provided and their account will be noted as a negative. If the student does not have money again the next day, a substitute lunch will be provided and applied to the negative account. The negative balance has to be repaid.
