Pre-Payment of Meal
Pre-payments are encouraged as they result in faster lunch lines and more time for children to eat. Prepayments can be made on line using Schoolcafe.com. Parents will need to use your childs school identification number to access their childs account. Viewing and monitoring your childs account on line is free of charge. Parents may also set up a “low balance email reminder” which will notify you when the account is low. Making a credit card payment into your childs account will cost the user a $2.25 convenience fee. The convenience fee is charged and paid directly to schoolcafe when making online prepayments. Cash and check prepayments may be made at school. Checks should be made out to SCSN with the childs name and identification number on the memo line. All money collected for prepayments will be put in the students account to be used for breakfast, lunch and/or ala-carte. Parents who wish to set limits or restrictions on their childs account should contact their school cafeteria manager to activate this service. All balances at the close of the school year will remain in the childs account and be accessible to the student at the beginning of the following year. Students are encouraged to know their identification number and urged to not share this number with anyone.
