Tuesday, September 10, 2019 News & Updates, School

To create a LunchTime account:   You do not need your child’s PIN or ID number to add them to your family account. You can search for your child(ren)’s name by typing their full name. Contact us for help.  Add funds to your children’s accounts electronically or, your student may bring cash or checks which can be added to their accounts (Payable to Tony & Joe’s) to school. If you choose to pay this way, you still need to create an  account and add your student(s) to this account. Please do not send cash with younger children. Checks are the safest way to send money to school. Questions?
