How do I pay for lunch?

 Our system provides complete anonymity to students eligible for free and reduced price meals.  

Payments may be applied to your student’s account on a weekly, monthly or annual basis.  Daily payments are accepted, but not recommended.

 

One form of payment can be sent in for multiple students.  Just notate how much should be applied to each account.  For example, one check can be written for the total amount and a note stating how much you want in each account. 

 

Payments can be made by cash/check and can be sent to school with your student, or mailed to:

PO Box 3620

 Payments can also be made using the online convenience of our new payment processing system, PaySchools. This program allows you to make payments online via e-check or credit card at your convenience all from our school's website. Family Access is a helpful tool to track your student's purchases, balances and payments. 
Login to Family & Student Access.

THE MENU IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

•Due to food availability.
•When school is cancelled due to inclement weather.

 If we have a snow day, on the day we return, the menu will be what was scheduled for the day we missed. If there is more than one consecutive day off, the menu will be what was scheduled for the FIRST missed day. For the remainder of the week, the menu will be followed according to what is scheduled for each day.

Please note that Friday's menu will always be Pizza.
