  • My name is Emily Thornton. I am the Child Nutrition Director for Thomasville City Schools. I feel that the Child Nutrition Program is very important. "A hungry child will find it hard to concentrate on his/her education."
  • Each child has an account in the cafeterias. The student is given an identification number. When a parent sends money for meals the students' account is posted. Money for meals may be paid by the day, week, month, or year. When the student keys in his/her account number for each meal, his/her account will be credited. A daily history of transactions is maintained at each cafeteria office. You may feel free to check on your child's account.
  • Free and Reduced lunch forms are available at each school's main office.

Thomasville City Schools is concerned about the nutritious welfare of year round. To find the nearest location for nutritious summer meals in your area please access the www.breakforaplate website.
