Food Service will continue to accept cash and check payments at all of our schools.

All students and staff have a
 Pre-Pay Nutrition Account.  Parents are expected to pay each Monday by 9 AM for the meals your child will eat during the week.

Deposits to the account
 should be made by check. 

Please Include the following in the memo area

Student name, 
Student ID 
Teacher's name

Checks should be made payable to:  FOOD SERVICES.

All cash deposits must be in envelopes with the same information. Change will not be given to students. Middle school and high school students may prepay in cash at the register during lunch.  

All
 returned checks are charged a fee of $15.00 from the students account.

As students take a meal, their name or STUDENT ID will be recorded and their account charged.  Each purchase must be tracked by federal regulations. 

No child ever needs to reveal whether they are free/reduced/paid.  This is confidential information.


Credit

 

Elementary School
Students may charge up to $20.

A substitute lunch will be provided for students (K-3) who have the maximum charges until the bill has been paid in full. 

Students in grades 4 & 5 will not be served a meal once the limit is reached and the family has been notified.


Middle Schoo
l

Students may charge up to 3 meals, (-$8.55).  

No meals will be given out for any student (6-8) after this limit is reached. 


High Schools

There is no charging by students, staff or visitors in high schools.  



Balances 

The District calling program will call families two or more times a week once a student reaches -$10.  Notes will go home each Friday for any student that owes money.  If you owe money, the balance amount is in parenthesis, e.g. ($20).  Any student that has charged the maximum amount will get a letter sent home notifying them of the bill.  Payment is expected the next day for the money owed plus any meals for the remainder of the week.


Students and parents can request a balance report from the school kitchen at any time.   You can also request a statement showing all account activity if you have questions about the account.

Remaining balances at the end of the school year will roll over to the next year.  

Even if the student changes school buildings, the money balance will go with them.  No refunds are given unless the student is leaving the district with more than $20.  


Parents may request additional limits on student accounts.


Contact your school's food service team leader for more information.    

Online Access


You can access your student balance through your student's 
Infinite Campus Portal.  There is a tab for meals that should be updated daily.

Please contact your individual school for more information.

You can also access your student balance through PayPams.com at no cost.

Point of Sale System

All students are assigned a 4-5 digit student ID.  The student ID is confidential. 

At the cashier, they enter their student ID on a keypad, and pay either with money from their prepay account, cash, or both.  Students may have their names checked from a classroom roster instead of entering their student ID if needed. 

Students are offered three levels of items.  They must take an entree and at least one other item to qualify for the lunch price.  Otherwise, the meal is charged at higher a la carte prices and cannot be claimed as a free or reduced meal.
