*NEW CHARGE POLICY*
The district allows elementary school students to charge up to $16.50 on their student accounts. Middle and high school students are allowed to charge up to $13 on their student accounts. Once students have reached this charge limit, they will be offered an alternate meal until their balance is paid off. Parents and guardians will be notified monthly via phone and/or mail regarding their student's unpaid meal balance.

Blocks on Student Meal Accounts
If a parent or guardian wishes to prevent their student from charging on their student meal account, the parent/guardian may request in writing or via email that a block be placed on a student’s meal account. This block can prohibit purchasing a meal or limit the student to paying cash for meals. Parents or guardians may request to remove this block at any time in writing or via email. Emails may be sent to nutrition.services@hesperiausd.org. Please include Student Name, School, and Student ID#.

SchoolPay
We are excited to announce SchoolPay has replaced PayPams as our online payment system. Please create an account today to easily pay for your student’s meals.
