Payments

The computerized meal ticket system is a declining balance system where funds are placed in advance on the account, and purchases are drawn against the balance. The program is not a credit card type system. A student PIN (Personal Identification Number) is issued to each student which is entered into the system when a purchase is made. Families are able to monitor the balance in their food service account. Online payments can be made into their account using My School Bucks. The District will continue to send notifications of account balances via e-mails, voicemails, and texts. If you are not receiving notifications, please check your settings in Infinite Campus or contact your child’s school office. Also, please keep in mind that our district participates in the National School Lunch program and depending on your circumstances, your family may qualify for free or reduced priced meals. Visit the Free/Reduced Price Meal page for more information

If an elementary and middle student’ account balance becomes low, a letter will be sent home to inform parents in the Tuesday take home folder. A low balance is defined as an account balance with $5.00 or less. E-mail notices are sent daily through intranet. If you’d like notification via e-mail, please contact the Foodservice Director at bdudzinski@ddschools.org.

Once a balance reaches $0.00 or below, students will not be allowed to charge any a la carte items to their account. A student with a negative $10.00 balance, will be provided a cheese sandwich for up to 5 days. During that time, the family should expect to be contacted by District administration. If the negative balance is not addressed after 5 days, the student will not be offered a cheese sandwich and will not be served a meal. Please note that regardless of the balance in your food service account, cash is always accepted daily for meals at the school office. Parents should discuss meal and a la carte purchasing guidelines with their children on a regular basis to prevent unwelcome purchases to their account.

We offer a couple different payment options. Cash payments are accepted, but must be in a sealed envelope and the envelope must contain the student name to assist in crediting the proper account. Cash or Checks are collected in each elementary school office. Middle and High School students can drop off payments with the cashier in the cafeteria before or after lunch. Payments by debit and credit cards can also be made through the My School Bucks Option www.myschoolbucks.com.

High School students may pay with cash in the serving line but are encouraged to use their Infinite Campus account to speed service for all students.

All balances, positive or negative in a student lunch account at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade. In the last two weeks of school, students will not be allowed to make any purchases if the account is not running positive balance. Any refunds of $5.00 or more for students leaving the district must be made to their school office:


Ala Carte Purchases

Students who receive free or reduced price meals have the same lunch options as students who pay full price, however A la Carte snack items sold at the Middle and High Schools are not included with lunch. Students who purchase them on account are charged full price, regardless of whether they receive free or reduced price meals. Parents should discuss purchasing guidelines with their children in advance to prevent unwelcome charges to their account.
