To ensure that no student has an allergic reaction, it is imperative that allergy information is indicated in the Medical Information section of the student registration form completed at the start of each school year. The school nurse collects this information. The Food Service Department works with each school’s nursing staff to collect these allergy details. This information is input into our computer and students are flagged in the system so that no student goes through the meal lines with a food item that can negatively impact their allergy.
EZ Pay is offered to assist in depositing money into your student’s meal account. To access the EZ pay link, click on the Parent Resources tab found on our district web page. The EZ Pay tab is listed under “important links”. If any assistance is needed, you can direct your questions to EZ Pay at 1-866-MY-EZPay (1-866-693-9729). You will need your student’s ID#. First time users can obtain your student’s ID# by calling the school building office. We encourage you to activate the Low Balance Notification on your EZPay site to assist you in keeping funds available for your student(s). District policy allows students to charge their lunch only twice, and then an alternate meal will be provided until the account is current. Charging at breakfast and during the last two weeks of school is not permitted.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Please understand with the current COVID-19 situation, the scheduled daily breakfast and lunch menus may unexpectedly change. The products we order, and may or may not receive, are subject to the supply and demand our vendors are experiencing at their locations. We will do our best to notify you ahead of time if the planned meal will change, however, this may not always be possible. We will continue to follow USDA Nutritional guidelines for any meals provided.
Thank you for your understanding.
