School Lunch Account -
The Point of Sale module in Infinite Campus for purchasing meals is used in our school food service program. Each student will have an account that will be utilized to deposit funds for meals, extra milk, etc. Depositing funds will keep lost and stolen money to a minimum and can be used for breakfast, lunch, extra entrées, milk, etc. If you send cash with your child, please place it in a sealed envelope with their name on it. We are not responsible for lost, unidentified, or stolen cash.
Deposits can be made online through the Parent Portal or turned in to the school office before school starts. Because we receive an overwhelming amount of deposits the morning of the first day of school, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to input all deposits into accounts before the lunch period begins.
The online payment system through the Parent Portal offers the option of setting up recurring payments and receiving notifications when your child’s account balance drops to a designated amount.
The Point of Sale module allows the purchase of one breakfast and one lunch per day at the meal price set for Paid, Reduced, or Free qualifying status. If a student purchases an extra entrée, ala carte item, or milk they will be charged at the per-item price regardless of eligibility.
Diet Modifications -
Families are responsible for notifying the School Food Service if their child requires a diet modification to be addressed and monitored by the School Food Service. A licensed physician must provide specific written medical documentation. Please contact the School Food Service office at the high school for more information.
Join Us! -
