Prices & Payments
Upon enrollment with the district, a personal lunch account is generated for each student. Funds may be deposited into your student's account which is only accessible by a PIN (or keypad) number assigned specifically to him or her. This account works like a debit account and funds should be available before your student may purchase a lunch or other ala carte item.
Parents may view the current school year's purchase history and balance of the student's account on Skyward Family Access.
A complete listing of ala carte pricing and items is located here. We highly encourage parents to discuss personal spending limits and permissible items with their students prior to allowing purchases. Please note that students with zero or negative account balances will not be permitted to charge ala carte items. Funds must be available in a student's account or payment submitted by cash to purchase these items. Please see the Charging Policy below for additional details.
Lunch Account Payment Methods
If paying by personal check or cash, you may combine payments for siblings in the same building. Separate checks are necessary for students in different buildings due to accounting systems.
Students may not use other student's accounts (including siblings' accounts) to pay for meals or ala carte purchases. If you would like to request a transfer from one sibling's account to another, please contact the lead cashier in your student's building. Click here for our contact list.
Returned Checks / Payments
Our banking partners will typically submit a check at least two times for payment. In the event a personal check is returned for insufficient funds, the amount of the check will be deducted from your student's lunch account. The Student Nutrition office will also contact the parent or guardian via email and/or letter.
In the event that an E-Funds payment is returned for insufficient funds or other transaction errors, funds will deducted from your student's lunch account effective on the original date of payment. The Student Nutrition office will also contact the parent or guardian via email and/or letter.
In either case, prompt payment to replace any necessary funds is expected at the time of notification.
