Lunches – Free and Reduced Lunch Apps
We will no longer require students to pre-order lunches. Lunches may be purchased on the day of service. If you would like to put money into your student’s lunch account, please set up an account at k12paymentcenter.com
. The greatest advantage to setting up an account and paying through the parent portal is the ability to set reminders and easily check account balances. You will be required to enter a local student ID number when linking students to your parent account. Please call Carey Moore at 455-9220 ext 338 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
for assistance in obtaining local student ID numbers. There is a $1.95 service charge for using a credit or debit card to apply payments. This service charge is per transaction, so if you are paying for multiple students, please do it as a single transaction. If you would like to avoid the service charge, you may still send cash or check to the school for payment. If you are sending cash or check and need the payment divided among multiple student accounts, please indicate how you would like the funds divided. Vision’s charge policy will be strictly enforced. Please be sure your child has enough funds in their account to cover their needs. As a reminder, full price lunch is $3.15 per day and reduced lunch is $0.40 per day. Breakfast is offered before school each day. Breakfast may be purchased for $1.80 full price, free and reduced eligible students will be served without cost. Students who are on campus for after school enrichment activites are eligible to receive a snack free of charge. Students must be enrolled in an activity in order to qualify for our snack program.
The district menu option on the k12paymentcenter.com
website is not currently being utilized, but we anticipate it being available by mid-September.

*The lunch application website is secure. Applications will be downloaded directly from the site for processing.
*There is absolutely no benefit in setting up an account in the lunch application site. The information is not retained from visit to visit.
*The site asks for information parents may not have access to at this point, but that is okay. Applications with missing student numbers and teacher assignments will still be processed.
*Unless the application includes a Health and Welfare case number, the last four digits of a parent/guardian Social Security number must be included on the application.
*Last year’s eligibiltiy is still valid for the first 30 days of school.

As an alternative, parents can still fill out the paper application. When a paper application is received, I will go through the electronic application process on behalf of the family.
