Paying for Lunches

We do accept cash as payment in the cafeteria, but we encourage everyone to use their Mealtime account at

Pay online at MyMealtime

Mealtime is a point of sale system in which your account can be “loaded” with money and used as needed to purchase food in the cafeteria at lunch and before and after school. We encourage everyone to use their Mealtime account. My Meal Time Logo NEW! Read about their mobile app to manage your account MyMealTime Setup and FAQs

Pay by cash or check

  • Checks or cash for deposit into your Mealtime account may be dropped off in the main office. (Please be sure to include the student’s name or ID number on the check.) Deposits may also be made with the cashiers at lunchtime.
  • Check or cash at any cashier station in the cafeteria during the lunch periods. Making change is strongly discouraged and will only be done at the cafeteria managers discretion. Cafeteria staff follows this protocol to ensure "lunch money" sent with students makes it into their account.
Please note: Students who owe more than $10 on their account will not be able to purchase ala carte food or snacks (View charging policy). At no time will a student be ever denied a meal despite their account status.
