Meal Payment Options

Meal Payment Options

Payment Information

Parents prepay for meals, with the cost of meals deducted from each child's account. When the account gets low, a balance slip is e-mailed home to give parents notice as to the balance of funds available. An automated reminder on Family Skyward Access can be set up. Additionally, a phone message reminder on a low balance may be made.

Manage Payments

We are pleased to offer a service for families and students called e-Funds for Schools. This user-friendly program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make meal payments online. Parents can pay fees by having funds electronically withdrawn from their checking account, credit card, or debit card. e-Funds For Schools is a secure service provider. There is no service fee for families.

Set Up Your Account

  1. Log in to Family Access-Skyward.
  2. Select Student Info (left-hand column) and find your student’s Other ID #. You will need this number when you set up your account in e-Funds. 
  3. Click on the Food Service tab.
  4. Click on Make a Payment. This will direct you to the e-Funds website.
  5. Register for your new account. Click on the Register icon and follow the instructions. You may also view the registration tutorial document on the same page. Please note that when filling in the student ID # field, include the leading zero.
  6. You will be asked to provide credit or debit card information in the secure system.

Once you have set up your account, you can access e-Funds directly.

Elementary Options & Elementary Emergency Meal Policy
At the elementary level, students can also give the payments to their teachers or use a drop box located in the office. If using checks, make checks payable to your student's school with the student's name and grade on the check. By district policy, students whose funds have run out are allowed to get three meals on credit. Information will be sent home with the student to request parents provide lunch payments.    

Monitor your account balance

You can track your student account through Family Access. In the message center, you will see notifications of payments and low account balances. You may also click on the Food Service tab on the left side to view cafeteria purchases, payments, and account balances. An automated reminder on Family Skyward Access can be set up.
