Welcome to Our Food Service Program

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! This site contains detailed information about the services we offer, including paying for meals, applying for free or reduced meals, and how to reach us with questions or concerns.

Account Information & Balances

Meal Magic
 
 
 
We are using Meal Magic, a computerized point-of-sale system. An account is established for every student in the district using their Student Identification (SId) number. Each account contains the student's photo, class, grade, account balance along with their SId. Students will enter their SId number on a pin-pad to make purchases and deposits. These accounts are individual student accounts.
 
Parents can view student meal activity and account balances for their child(ren) through a secure website by creating a User Account. Users must provide:
  • Email address
  • Student's name(s)
  • Student's Identification Number
  • Student's date of birth
Once this information is submitted,  Meal Magic® will send a message containing a temporary password to the email account provided.

Fee Management & Lunch Payments

Pay For It dot Net
Our online payment system, PayForIt.net is different than one we have used in previous years. With PayForIt.net, the accounts are no longer family accounts, but individual student accounts. For this reason, any balances at the end of the 2014-15 school year in a family account, whether positive or negative, was transferred to the 2015-16 account of the oldest student in the family.
 
The family can set up one account, but the payments are applied to individual child(ren) as you specify when the payment is made. You can make payments for lunch, fees for athletics, purchase yearbooks, etc. through PayForIt.net.
 
For online lunch money payments, typically the money appears in your child’s lunch account within 2 hours.
 

With PayForIt.net, you can:

  • Set up an account
  • Deposit money at your convenience into your child's lunch account
  • Set email reminders to notify you when your child's account gets low
  • Set up recurring payments for your child's lunch account
  • Check your child's lunch account balance
  • View an acivity report so you can see what your child has eaten in the previous 30 days

To set up an account you will need:

  • A valid email address
  • A debit card, credit card, or ACH electronic check information
  • Your child's student identification number
 
 
 
 

Free and Reduced Meal Applications

A new application must be submitted each year to receive benefits. Applications for the 2016-2017 school year are available after August 20, 2016. The Federal Government has released a new Free/Reduced Meal Application this year.
 
Do not fill out an application if you receive a letter from us stating that your child is already approved for free meals because you receive food stamps.
 
New this year is the choice of completing the application online or in the traditional paper form. LunchApp.com
Use one application for all students in your household. Incomplete applications cannot be approved; be certain to fill out all required information.
 

Kindergarten Students and New Students - All kindergarten and new students must pay full price for meals until his/her application has been approved, even if his/her siblings receive free or reduced price meals.
