Pre-Payment Options

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.

There are three ways to pay for your child’s breakfasts and lunches

  1. Completion and certification into the USDA Free or Reduced meals program
  2. Cash or check deposited through the food services cashier.
  3. Credit card or e-check payment at Online Payment Center
  4. K12PaymentCenter Mobile App

The USDA Has Extended Free Meals for Kids Through the 2021-2022 School Year

All students may choose a free breakfast and free lunch daily while in school.

In addition to free meals in schools, each school site will offer one lunch and one breakfast to children not attending.  These meals are free for children ages 18 and under.  Parents may contact the school nutrition office at 540-661-4579 to arrange for pick up meals for their children. Breakfast and lunch are picked up at the same time.  Pick up days occur on academic learning days when schools are open. Each school pick up time varies based on the lunch schedule for the school.
