We wanted to make parents aware of PaySchools Central, an online tool to view your child’s lunch account. Unlike PayForIt, you do not need to provide a credit card or checking account to gain access to this. With PaySchools Central, you can view your child’s lunch balance; see what they are purchasing; set restrictions on what items they can purchase; and set various alert notifications. It is not required, but you also have the option to add funds to your child’s lunch account through this for a small convenience fee.
To access PaySchools Central and the various guides for it, click HERE
. You can also access this page from the PaySchools Central
link under the Parents
section of our website.
Here are a few things to be aware of:
1. It is very important to read or view the guides provided before doing anything in PaySchools Central. Especially make sure to watch the video in regards to restricting the purchase of food items.
2. If you already had a PayForIt account, you will need to transition it to PaySchools if you have not already done so. Follow the appropriate guide on how to do that.
3. If you are new to PaySchools Central and did not have a PayForIt account, you just need a valid email address and your child's student ID number to create an account. This information was already sent home to Kindergarten students. If you do not know your child's student ID number, please contact the appropriate school building and they can get it for you.
