Have you ever asked yourself the following questions about your child's lunch money???

  • Did the money I give my child for lunch last week actually make it to the cafeteria or is it in the bottom of his backpack?
  • Was the last check I wrote enough to cover next week's meals?
  • Is he actually using the money I send for his meals, or spending it after school?
  • Is he spending his money on those items I want him to have?

If you have ever asked yourself at least one of these questions, then it is time to use our new online prepayment option! Look at the following benefits!

  • Easy access to meal selections made by your child.
  • Make a payment, at any time of day or night!
  • Review at any time, your child's balance - AND, we will even send you an e-mail reminder when the balance is low!
  • Determine how the money is to be spent - YOU decide which account to deposit the money. The General account allows your child to purchase a la carte items and/or a school meal, while the Meal account will only allow a school meal to be purchased

And, MORE GOOD NEWS! - if your child moves to another school in the district OR if the school year ends and there is money in your child's account, then that money rolls to the new school and the new school year.

To submit a payment, you will need the following:

  • Your child(ren)'s 7-digit student ID number.
  • A valid credit card or debit card.
  • A valid e-mail address.
