Pre-Payment Options

Credit/debit card payments up to $100 can be made through the SchoolCafe app and/or website.  SchoolCafe charges a convenience fee for this service*.

In addition to online payments, SchoolCafe can be used (for free) to:

  • view purchase history
  • set purchase restrictions
  • apply for free or reduced meals
  • set low balance reminder emails
  • set up automatic payments

Avoid accruing a negative balance by setting low balance reminder emails and/or automatic payments.  You choose the balance threshold and email frequency.

(*MTSD does not set or collect the convenience fee.  Avoid paying the fee by sending a check or cash to school with your student.)


Send Check or Cash

Cash and checks are accepted at the District Office and/or your student's school.  To ensure proper credit, please place cash/checks in an envelope marked with:

  • Student's first and last name
  • Student's ID number
  • Dollar amount sent (if sending cash)
  • Student's homeroom teacher

Make checks payable to MTSD Cafeteria Fund and write in dark blue or black ink.
