Breakfast is Important
Eat breakfast at school! Breakfast is available before school in each building’s cafeteria. School breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast is a great way to gain vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body. Breakfast is affordable too! A family qualifying for free or reduced priced lunch receives the same benefits for breakfast. Help your child start the day off right with school breakfast.
Account Information & Balances
We are using Meal Magic, a computerized point-of-sale system. An account is established for every student in the district using their Student Identification (SId) number. Each account contains the student's photo, class, grade, account balance along with their SId. Students will enter their SId number on a pin-pad to make purchases and deposits. These accounts are individual student accounts.Parents can view student meal activity and account balances for their child(ren) through a secure website by creating a User Account. Users must provide:
- Email address
- Student's name(s)
- Student's Identification Number
- Student's date of birth
