Child Nutrition Services accepts cash or checks for payments. These may be made at the point of sale daily, or sent in to the cafeteria as prepayments. Prepayments will be put on the student's meal account.
Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.
