Paying for Meals
Students may pay for meals by the day, week, or month. Money is put in an account set up for each student and basically, works like a debit card. You can send cash or checks to school with your child to pay for meals. Please make sure your child has money for lunch every day.
If you are paying with cash, put it in a sealed envelope and write your child's first and last name on the envelope. For elementary school students, please write the teacher's name and grade on the outside of the envelope.
If you are paying by check, write your child's first and last name on the check. Use a separate check for each child to ensure that the correct amount of money is applied to each child's account.
If you are paying online, log on to the Parent Portal. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, contact your child's school to obtain one.
Families now have the option of using an online service to fund their child's lunch account. Examine these directions regarding how you would use this service through the Parent Portal. If you need your Parent Portal login information, please go to your child's school in person with identification.
To check your child(ren)'s balance:
Log on to the Parent Portal. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, contact your child's school to obtain one.
From the Parent Portal, select Food Service on the left menu bar under Family. Here you will see your child(ren)'s name(s), their account number(s), and the balance(s) in each account.
If a negative balance is shown, please send payment with your child!
Charging meals is discouraged, although sometimes unavoidable. Parents will be notified after two meals have been charged, and no more than three charges will be allowed. If a student exceeds this limit, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and unflavored low-fat milk will be provided to sustain the student for the remainder of the school day.
