Home of the Coolest School Cafe ANYWHERE

... a gathering place to nourish the mind, body, heart & soul

Important Information
The cost of lunch for learners and adults is $5.00.  This includes your choice of the hot lunch with salad bar or sandwich bar with salad bar. We also have the choice of just a salad option on its own for $3.  All drinks are an extra charge with the exception of  ice water during the lunch period. Ice water is available before and after lunch but the learners must bring their own bottle to fill up; we do not give out cups outside of lunch.
The Cafe has a meal plan option in which a group of lunches can be bought in advance allowing the learner to skip the payment line and go directly to pick up their lunch.  We have the year broken down into three different periods (beginning of the year through winter break, winter break through spring break and spring break through end of year) allowing for ease of payment. Forms for the meal plan can be found in the Cafe or emailed upon request.

The menu for the upcoming weeks can be found on the "menu" tab above. Please note that the menu can change at anytime; we are at the mercy of food suppliers that may have their difficulties which affect the cafe menu. Please make sure to verify each morning if your learner is set on the menu option for the day.
We accept cash, debit and credit cards at the point of sale. You can use a checking or savings account (with a routing and account number) on myschoolaccount.com
Students are given a 4 or 5 digit pin to remember.  When it is their turn at the cashier, they punch their number in and their account will be displayed; learners should memorize their assigned numbers so we can expedite the line in a quick and organized manner.  We will help the little kiddos until they remember their numbers. 
 If your learner has food allergies, we need advance notice if they are purchasing lunch so we can prepare food that is safe for them to eat.  If they eat lunch every day, we will make sure to have lunch ready for them at their assigned lunch time.  If they order irregularly, please email us the day before so we have something ready.  If it is an emergency, email the café by 8 am the day of; we will make sure to have food for your learner on that day.
If you are new to the school or have a incoming Kindergartener, email The Café at café@scvi-k12.org.  We can answer any questions you may have!
In order to keep our accounts current, learners will be allowed two lunches on credit or a maximum of $10.00 before they ARE NOT able to purchase on credit any longer.  In addition, a learner who does not have enough on their account will be given a lunch but will not be able to purchase any snacks. If you want to put restrictions on your learner's account, please email café@scvi-k12.org; we can not guarantee 100% accuracy but we will do our best to keep on top of all requests.    
The Café has a large selection of healthy snack items for purchase throughout the day. The menu for the snack selections can be found by the cashier's station or on our website under café/snack items - prices range from $.75- $4.00.
We are always in need of volunteers to work in the kitchen and supervise during breaks and lunch.  We encourage anyone interested in volunteering in the cafe to email cafe@scvi-k12.org to get signed up.

Online Accounts:

Set up an online account for your learner and yourself at myschoolaccount.com. Students can pay for their snacks and/or lunch with their online accounts.  The cashiers will accept cash, checks, or credit/debit cards daily (brought directly to the Café or put in the lunch mailbox located in the lobby). Additionally,  myschoolaccount.com allows you to put money in your learner's account via your checking or savings account. The fee is $2 to put money in, and you can put in as much as you want. One great feature; you may also set up the account to e-mail you a reminder when funds are low.  Please be diligent and keep on top of the status of your child's account; it saves everyone time, stress and confusion. If the account is not where you believe it should be the please do not hesitate to give the Café a call to review all transactions.  Please note: myschoolaccount.com can take up to 48 hours to reflect any funds added to a learners account; if you need the funds before they show up as a credit please give Chef Eileen Wright a call at the café or her personal cell phone at 661-210-5987.

Our computers do not sync until the evening.  There could be a time where you may put money into your learner's account and we do not see the funds on our end due to the timing of the computer sync which happens at the end of our business day.  If your student was told that they do not have any money in their account and you have put money in, please be understanding; we just can not see it yet but will always take one's word and feed a learner.  We have not and will not turn down any learner if their account is negative from one or two lunches! 


An email is sent out weekly (Friday) for accounts that are in the negative.  The cafe staff would greatly appreciate all negatives be brought to either a zero balance or a credit balance for the learner to use in the future.  If you believe that this letter was sent in error, please email us.

Email juana.rodriguez@scvi-k12.org to find out your learner's ID number and PIN to set up the account online. After you receive the verification code you may begin to add your children’s information. Questions? Email cafe@scvi-k12.org.

Students Leaving SCVi

If your learner is leaving, you must pay your outstanding balance before the last day they attend SCVi.  If their account is in the positive, you have two weeks from their exit date to request a refund from their account.  Please note that there are no refunds for any learners who have been partaking in the "Lunch Plan". Please email café@scvi-k12.org with your address, learners name and other pertinent info to request a refund.  After two weeks, the funds that are left in the account will go into another account to help pay for learners who can't afford lunch.

It is our goal to serve delicious, healthy and  diverse menu options.

It is always a pleasure to meet the parents of our learners as they share a lunch with a child
