Paying for Meals

All schools use a computerized meal credit system to account for student meals and a la carte sales.  Parents/guardians are encouraged to pay in advance for purchases using their student’s meal account.  Each student has a 4 digit number that recognizes their own personal account.  Prepaying for purchases is encouraged to speed the meal transaction, allowing lines to move more quickly and affording more time for eating their meals.

All students have personal accounts.  Checks should be made payable to “School Name—School Nutrition”.  Parents/Guardians are encouraged to pay for purchases by check, thus reducing the chance that money will be forgotten, lost or stolen.  In the memo section of the check please include the child’s name and account number. 

You may also register your child at to make on-line payments, check account balances, or receive email notification when account balance falls below a certain amount.  The school id number is needed to register your child and can be obtained by contacting your child’s school or the school nutrition office.  It is not the 4 digit account number that students use daily.  Students can also set up an account to check balances before making extra purchases.
