Student Meal Accounts
Each student is assigned a specific ID number which is unique to them and allows only them access to their meal account. The ID number is assigned by the school and can be found on their 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 the school your child attends for assistance. New students are notified of his/her number on their first day of school. 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 in the School Food Service Program. You can pay by cash, check, credit card or money order. If you feel you might qualify for Free or Reduced Price Meals please 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 you forget to deposit funds into your child’s account. 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. We encourage you to check your child’s account balance through 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 $100 is subject to being sent to a collection agency.
