Please take advantage of the options to prepay your students meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and give 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 purchases other than lunch.

EACS offers the ability to pay for student meals using "e~Funds for Schools" (an electronic payment company); or they may send in cash or a check made payable to each student's school. Please have all cash and check deposits submitted to school personnel before 9:15am.
  • Meal deposits should be placed in an envelope with student name and Student ID number on the envelope. Your check may cover more than one child (IF they attend the same school). Write their names and numbers on the outside of the envelope.
