Food & Nutrition Services FAQs

How are lunches ordered?
As in years past, families will continue to have an individual link for ordering lunches. This link will be emailed out twice a month by Lynn Borwege. Once families login, they will need to select the lunches they want their child to eat. A family does not need to have a balance in their lunch account to order meals, however, the account should have a balance in their account at the time that the meal is eaten.
How can we deposit money into our lunch account?
Parents can deposit money into their lunch account by putting cash or check into the “Lunch Money” mailbox in the main office. Parents can also use their online lunch account to pay for lunches with a credit or debit card. Parents can access their lunch account by clicking here.
Will I know if my student has eaten a school lunch?
Once money is place in your account, it will be deducted based on the lunches eaten by your student. Click here to access your family's lunch account. The first time you do this you will need to have a family key code. Contact Lynn Borwege to receive a code if you do not have one.
