Paying for Meals

1.    We can take payment as follows:

A. Cash or Check. If you send it with a student, please put it in an envelope and write the student's name on the outside and that it is for food payment.

B.  Credit or Debit. 

2. Online through  via Parent Square . Paying online is a cinch!

What happens if my student's account goes below zero?

When a student's account is less than zero, our automated phone system will give you a call to remind you to replenish the account.  These phone calls go out on Mondays and Thursdays.
When a student has had five lunches without a payment being made, someone from the business office, principal's office, or counselor's office will call the parent or guardian to discuss payment options or provide assistance with the Free/Reduced Meal Application.
Don't forget:  If you are feeling a financial pinch, we encourage all families to apply for free/reduced meals
