Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the meal 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 something other than lunch.
Online payments are a simple, safe and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.
- Students may continue to pay cash when going through the lunch line.
- Warwick offers parents the option to put money on account to pay for meals. This can be done by sending a check in the envelopes provided, clearly marked with the students name, homeroom and amount of payment. Parents may apply any amount to the student’s meal account. There is no fee for this service. When students purchase a meal, the cost of the meal and any additional ala carte items will be deducted from the student’s balance. Students may not purchase another child’s meal on their account, and they may not receive cash from their account. Cashiers will advise students when their account balance is low.
- EZSchoolPay is a convenient on-line lunch payment service. Payments can be made to your child’s lunch account using VISA/ Discover or MasterCard (debit or credit). There is a $3.00 flat fee for each credit card transaction. For example, if a parent deposits money into three children’s accounts using the same credit card transaction, there will be one $3.00 fee. Funds deposited through EZSchoolPay typically show up on your student’s account within 20 minutes.
- If you choose not to pay on-line, it is still beneficial to register with EZSchoolPay.com. Registration is free and enables parents to monitor their student’s lunch balance and meal activity online. Parents are also able to receive low-balance email alerts. The low-balance level for all accounts is currently set at $.00. In order to receive a low balance message for your student’s account, parents are responsible for setting a low balance level to something that makes sense for you. If your low balance level preset is $6.00, you will receive email notification when your student’s balance hits $6.00. This is a great tool for helping to insure that your student has sufficient funds to purchase their school meal.
A nutritious meal is important to the success of our students. It is beneficial to your student to insure funds are available to purchase their meals. Please be assured that your student will never be denied a meal. However, if the student does not have funds, ala carte purchases will not be allowed.
Warwick Food and Nutrition continues to develop school menus to meet the calorie and low fat standards required by the National School Lunch Program. Please feel free to contact the Food and Nutrition office or your cafeteria manager with any questions. We look forward to seeing your student at lunch!
