MealMagic.net suite is a debit system. Prepay for meals online using a credit or debit card at www.SendMoneyToSchool.com. There is no fee for this service. Parents can access this site to check balances and meal purchases at any time.
Weekly or monthly payments by check are accepted at every school. The student's name and/or account number is required on the check. If checks are returned by the bank due to insufficient funds, families will be charged $25.00 per occurence, and the negative amount will immediately be applied to the student's account.
Children will not be allowed to buy breakfast or lunch if there is no money in their account. A complimentary snack that consists of a roll or muffin, fruit and milk can be provided to ensure the student doesn't go hungry. There is a limit of 3 snacks per year. This guideline is strictly enforced district wide. Please check your child's account at www.SendMoneyToSchool.com.
Fill out the "pink" application this year or apply online at www.LunchApp.com. Complete one application per household. If you qualified for a free or reduced-price meal last year, we will use your eligibility for the first 30 operating days. New forms must be submitted by September 13, 2016, for Carpenter or October 17, 2016 for all other schools. You will be notified by mail if you qualify.
Please Note: We highly encourage all families to fill out this form. Many of the supplemental grants and federal aid our school district receives are based on the total approved free and reduced meal applications. These funds enhance the educational opportunities of our students.
If you qualify for Free School Lunches you may qualify for "Internet Essentials". For more information about the program click here.
Low Balance Notifications
Elementary students are verbally notified at school by the kitchen staff. In addition the District's SchoolMessenger program will call and e-mail the parent or guardian when the remaining money in the student's meal account goes down to $10.00 or below. Messages are sent out to all student grades K through 6.

NSF Check Policy
If restitution is not made on a returned check, the District will no longer accept checks from that individual. If two returned checks are received by the District from the same individual, the District will no longer accept checks from that individual regardless if restitution has been made. A confidential list of those individuals will be distributed to all district employees collecting funds to verify that no checks are accepted for future purchases or events. Please note that the District's returned check fee is $25.
