HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY CHILD'S LUNCH?
- You may pay for your child's meals by sending the money to his/her teacher or the front office and you may pay online HERE. 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.
- Cash, checks or online payment at mypaymentsplus.com are the forms of payment for school lunches.
- The Cafeteria will send a statement of your child's account home when their account has a negative balance.
School Breakfast and Lunch menus may be found HERE.
Applying for Free and Reduced Price School Meals
District One Schools will mail each household an updated SCDE Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals. Copies of the application are available online and at each school. The federal government requires that a new application be completed within the first 30 days of every school year. It is best that you do this at registration. Once the 30 day grace period has ended and there is no new application received, you will be charged full price for lunch meals. BREAKFAST IS FREE FOR ALL STUDENTS.
If you are earning at or below current Income Eligibility Guidelines, we encourage you to contact your school to fill out a school meal application. The school or local education agency will process your application and issue an eligibility determination.
If you are receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, your child automatically qualifies for free school meals if you complete an application indicating your SNAP Case Number. (Not card number).
Note: Once a bus request has been submitted, a bus driver will contact the parents/guardians to give an approximate pick up/drop off time and bus stop location. This process can take several days and contact from bus drivers may not be made until the week before the first day of school.
