Meal Payments & Refunds

Prepayment Options

Please take advantage of the options to prepay on your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than breakfast or lunch.

You can set up a School Café account to pay online (preferred method). Click here for instructions on how to set up an account and how to add funds to your child's account. You may also send a check or cash with your student for a payment. Please place the check or cash in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID #, their teacher's name, the $ amount and the check #. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashier(s).
