Pre-Payment Options

Central Unified Schools participate in the Community Eligibility Provision which allows us to provide each student with a Free Breakfast and a Free Lunch each day.  Parents whose student wishes to purchase an à la carte milk to go with their sack lunch from home or secondary students who wish to purchase items from the snack bar need to pay cash or have money on their child's account. Parents may wish to take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the 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 money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things.

Debit or Credit Card payments can be made online at or by clicking the link below (there is a $2.60 processing fee per transaction however you add money to multiple accounts in one transaction.  You can also check your child's account balance, complete a free/reduced meal application and review your child's purchases for free).  Cash or Check payments can be made in the school cafeteria and at the Child Nutrition Office, located at 5652 W. Gettysburg, Room #5. 

Send Check or Cash

You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID #, their teacher's name, the $ amount and the check #. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashier(s) or school office.
