    We provide an online system to fund your child’s lunch account, pay tuition, or other applicable fees. You may use your credit and/or debit card for the transaction. Credit card payments are made available only over the Internet; however, we still accept cash* and check payments at the school building.  The system is easy, convenient, and secure. (A transaction fee applies for each transaction.  A transaction can include adding money to more than one child’s account.)  We no longer provide/make change for cash payments. Your account will be credited if you make an overpayment.

    If placing pre-payments for children in different buildings – be sure to complete in one transaction. Otherwise, you will be paying a transaction fee for each child.

    Parents who use the online system must first create an account using your student’s ID number.  No personal information about your student is available online via this system. The district does not keep your credit card information on file, and therefore, you will need to re-enter your credit card number each time you use the online system. 

    Please note: Once you have registered and created a password you will not need the student ID number again. You can check your child’s account balance as long as you have access to the Internet. As a courtesy, the PaySchools system will send a low lunch balance notification by e-mail. Payments made online will be credited to your child's account. This process may take up to 48 hours depending on the time/day the pre-payment was made. If placing pre-payments for children in different buildings – be sure to complete in one transaction. Otherwise, you will be paying a transaction fee for each child.
