Our New Point Of Sale Lunch System (LunchTime) and School Payment Portal Frequently Asked Questions:




Can we still pay with cash or check?Top of Page

Yes. We have no plans to stop accepting cash or checks. Credit card payment is a new option many find to be more convenient.

My child paid for lunch with cash and put the change in their account? Is there a fee associated with that?Top of Page

No, there is no fee if you pay with cash or check. The remainder is credited in the student's account and can be accessed for future lunches. If there is a balance at the end of the year it will carry over to the next school year. If a student graduates and has a balance, the remainder can be transferred to a sibling in the district, or a check can be requested by June 30th.

How can I check the balance if my child pays with cash or check?Top of Page

At the end of each school day we perform a synchronization with LunchTime which will update the student's balance, regardless of whether you paid with a credit card. Click on the blue text “Transactions” to see a listing of all cafeteria activity for that student.

Will there be a convenience charge for online payments?Top of Page

Yes. For a ACH bank account transaction there will be a $1.00 fee for deposits up to $500.00.  If it is a credit card transaction the cost would be $1.00 plus 2.3% of the amount deposited into the account.

How do I pay for multiple students and will I get charged the convenience fee for each student?Top of Page

If you wish to split up the deposit amongst your children you can without paying an extra transaction fee. Example; If you deposit $75.00 into your account and wish to split it up amongst (3) children at $25.00 each, you will be charged the $1.00 plus 2.3% of $75.00.  Your total Service fee would be $2.72 for that transaction.
