Pay for meals and Manage your student's lunch account:

Each enrolled student has a lunch account number.  There are 3 payment methods:

  1. Create a free account online at with your child’s PowerSchool ID number.  You can pre-fund your child’s lunch account, track purchases, create low balance notifications for yourself, and  set up automatic payments.
  2.  Authorize the District to charge a credit card for purchases.  Click here for the authorization form, and return the completed form to your school.
  3. Pre-pay with cash or check at your school’s office.

If you do not want your child to charge purchases in the cafeteria, please contact your school’s Kitchen Manager to put a block on the account.  Contacts are listed below:

You must tell your child not to purchase items beyond your authorization or beyond what their eligibility allows them.  Once an account is blocked, cash is the only accepted payment.  It is the guardian's responsibility to create an online account at to track the student's cafeteria purchases and add funds to the student's account.   The school district does not send home statements of balances or what has been purchased. 

The District can not carry the financial burden of delinquent lunch accounts or spend the time and energy it takes to collect.  Therefore, as a last resort, any parent who repeatedly refuses to take one of the above actions and continues to have a negative balance on their child’s lunch account will be notified and sent to collections.

Free or reduced price meals are available for those who qualify.
Kindergarten through 5th grade students who qualify for reduced meals get free breakfast and lunch. Sixth through 12th grade students who qualify for reduced meals get free breakfast.
