Please make sure your student has sufficient funds on their account to minimize the possibility that they might be without money for lunch or breakfast. Students may charge meals only on occasion when money is unavailable and the student would have to miss meal service. This is a courtesy extended to the student and should not occur on a regular basis. Lunch account balances are available in PowerSchool. Online payments can be made to keep funds on your student's accounts and you can sign up for low balance email notification.
