Student Meal Accounts and Meal Benefits
It’s almost the end of the school year, and we have a few reminders from Food Services:
• All cafeteria accounts must be paid in full by Wednesday, June 5, 2019. To view your student’s balance and purchasing history, visit
• If your child is graduating and has a positive cafeteria account balance, funds will automatically be transferred to the next oldest sibling. If there are no remaining siblings in the District, a refund check will be issued to the parent/guardian at the address on record. Please disable automatic payments for your graduating seniors!
• If your child qualified for free or reduced price meals during the 2018-2019 school year, those benefits will carry over only for the first 30 calendar days of the 2019-2020 school year. Parents/Guardians must submit a new application for free and reduced meals during that 30 day grace period.
If you have questions about your child’s account, or need to make payment arrangements, please contact Maria Jones in the Food Services Office, at 610-987-4100, extension 1210, or Thank you!
