Meal Account Balance Inquiry & payment

Parents now have the availability to check their child's meal account balance and 30-day transaction history online. This allows parents to see when their child is eating or not and monitor their balance. Keeping your child's meal account balance in a positive state will ensure your child receives a meal. A nutritious breakfast and lunch is important to a growing child's health and learning. 

It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to maintain sufficient funds in their child's meal account. A student’s account summary information can be retrieved at any time.  Parents can place restrictions on their child’s account by contacting the school kitchen manager.  Charging is discouraged and should only be used in emergencies.  The approved District policy for allowing charges are: Elementary- 3 charges, Middle- 1 charge, and High- no charges. Any student failing to keep his/her account current as required by the district shall not be allowed to charge the price of further meals until the account has been paid in full, but will be allowed to purchase a meal if the student pays for the meal when it is received.  Payment may be made at the school office or school kitchen.

To access your student's meal account balance, click on the appropriate link below. Select the school your student attends from the drop down list provided. Enter your student's School District ID number and then click "Submit". Information is updated daily @ 3:00 pm.  If you do not have your student's School District ID number, you may contact your school office.

You can now say good-bye to sending cash or checks to the school office or cafeteria for your child's school meals. This reduces the chance of lost money from home to the school. Now, payments can me made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The PayForIt program is a secure online payment system, which gives parents the option to add money online to their child's school meal account. In addition, parents can manage more than one student account in the PFI system. 

Please note - there will be a short delay from the time you make the deposit to PayForIt to the time it shows up in your student's account. Money deposited before midnight will typically be posted to the student's account by the following morning. Money deposited on a school day morning, may not be available until the following day due to updates in our Accurate Meals program which processes our Point-of-Sale for meals. (PayForIt is a third party system and is available as a convenience for student meal payments)
