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.

Checks are accepted and should be made payable to the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District. If checks are returned because of insufficient funds, a $10 service fee will be charged.

The price of a complete lunch at the elementary schools is $3.00. Meals may be purchased for a week or more at a time with a weekly rate of $15.00. Preprinted envelopes for paying in advance are available in the school office. Snack, milk, and juice can be paid for in advance by purchasing ticket booklets, available for $5 or $10. Payments should be brought to the school office before the lunch period. Pupils may also pay cash for meals on a daily basis when they come to the cafeteria.
Middle school lunches may be purchased for $3.00 per meal or $15.00 per week. Payments at the middle schools should be brought to the cafeteria before the lunch period. At the middle schools pupils may purchase food items separately rather than as a complete meal. Prices vary by item.
