Meal Account Information
This is the most efficient way to put money on your student’s account. Payments made online are posted to student meal accounts within 24-48 hours. Your student’s meal account balance is listed on this website. If the balance is in (parenthesis), it signifies a negative balance.
Note: A convenience fee of $2.00 per transaction is charged for online payments and purchases per student. If you have multiple students, you can request a family account to avoid paying more than one convenience fee. To request a family account, please email Shelley Ehlert at firstname.lastname@example.org with your students' names.
Other Payments Accepted
Cash or personal check payments are also accepted at all of our Central Valley school offices.
At any time, parents/guardians may put purchasing limits on their children’s meal accounts. Please contact our office at 558-5417 for more details.
Low and Negative Meal Account Balances
- Any student requesting a full meal will be allowed one regardless of account balance, unless there are parental controls prohibiting meal account purchases.
- If a student’s account is negative, only full meals are allowed to be charged; snacks or extra items such as additional milk and extra entrees cannot be purchased.
- Notifications to parents/guardians are made weekly through email when student balances are negative. To ensure receipt of these notices please keep your contact information up-to date with your student’s school.
- The district may reach out to parents when students account balances reach negative (-$25.00) or more.
