For parents who wish to order lunch using a credit card, we are continuing to use MealTime as our payment system:
The MealTime Online system allows you to put money into an account for your child to use for lunch or milk purchases. A minimum of $25.00 per family is required by MealTime. All fees paid online will be charged a 2.5% service fee that will be added to the total bill at the time of payment. You will need your child’s ID to register. His/her ID number can be found on the Home Access Center letter you received at registration or you may call the school office or log into Home Access Center. The MealTime account is beneficial if you would like to use a credit card, know your child’s balance and receive notification of a low balance.
If you do not wish to pay by credit card, you may send a check/cash to school in an envelope marked with your child’s name and homeroom/first period teacher’s name on it. If the exact amount of $3.50 is not sent, the remainder will be put in an account for future lunch or milk purchases. The Head Cafeteria Supervisor will put it in your child’s account on MealTime.
