Student Meal Accounts
Each student is assigned a specific ID number which is unique and allows only the student access to his or her meal account. The ID number is assigned by the school and can be found on the student picture ID, report card or student handbook label. If you do not know your child’s student ID number, please contact the secretary of your child’s school for assistance. Please help your student learn their ID number, this is how they access their meal account!
Paying For Meals
Payment is expected at the time a meal is selected by the student. There are a variety of methods to pay for meals and snacks. Payment at the school can be by cash, check, or money order. eFunds is our on-line payment system. Some households are eligible for free or reduced priced meals. This link Free or Reduced Price Meals explains the process and steps to complete an application in Skyward Family Access. Applications may be completed anytime throughout the school year.
Meal Debt: We recognize there may be times when funds run low in your child’s account. Reminders can be set in the Skyward system to send an alert when an account balance reaches a certain dollar amount. Regardless if your student has money to pay for their school meal or owes money for the school meal, a school meal shall be provided to a student who requests one, unless the student’s parent or guardian has instructed the District in writing to withhold a school meal. The cost of any such meal provided under these circumstances shall be added to the student’s balance. To help explain the process read this letter. PLEASE check your child’s account balance at least one time weekly using the SKYWARD FAMILY ACCESS page and make deposits when funds are low.
If your student has a Negative Balance of $25 or more you will be receiving a phone call identifying the amount of money due. Your prompt attention to the debt is required within 10 working days. Debt exceeding $50 is subject to being sent to a collection agency.
