How do I put money in my child's account?


Fayette County schools use MealPayPlus to manage student lunch accounts. If you would like to add money to your child's account or check their balance, this is a great and fast way to do it. You will need your child's student ID number. You can obtain this number by talking to the office secretary or the cafeteria manager.

You can also send a check/money in with your child but please note it is the students responsibility to make sure the money gets to the cafeteria. Sometimes parents come to eat with their child and add money then.

How will I know if my child has a negative account balance?

When your child goes over their account balance a "charge" letter will be sent home indicating the money owed. Make sure you check your child's folder/backpack daily for all information regarding school.

Why did my child receive a snack lunch?

If your child charges too much money to their lunch account, they will be served a snack lunch. Please make sure you keep your child's lunch account balance above zero!! A snack lunch consists of a cheese sandwich and milk.

Who do I talk to if I think my child's account balance is wrong?

Our cafeteria manager is Kenneva Hurt. You can contact her via email by clicking here or you can call the school at 381-4979.

Can I come and eat lunch with my child?

We would love for you to!!! Just check with your child's teacher to see when their lunch time is, or see the schedule below. Please avoid bringing in outside food from fast food restaurants and sodas.

How do I apply for free/reduced lunch?

To apply for free/reduced lunch, you must fill out an application. Applications are sent home with every student at the beginning of the school year. If you find you need one later in the year, ask your child's teacher or pick up one in the office. Once the application has been turned in, you will receive a letter a few weeks after in the mail that tells you what assistance you qualify for.

When I eat lunch with my child, can I use money from their lunch account to pay for mine as well?

No, the money in the child's account can only be used for the student child.

What do the colors on the menu represent?

Each food group is a different color. If a child picks foods that represent all colors, they will have a balanced meal.
