  • Student Balances in Meal Accounts

    As we approach the end of the school year, please take a moment to look at your student's balances in their meal accounts. Any unpaid meal accounts can be paid by cash or check at your student’s school or by credit card on the SchoolCafe website on the App.

    All balances for returning students will be rolled over for the next school year.

    If you are the parent of an 8th grader and will need a refund of the remaining funds on your student’s account or would like to have the funds transferred to a sibling that is in the district, please contact the Nutrition Department at or (847) 963-3930.
