Lunch Account Information
Dear Parents and/or Guardians:
Pardeeville Schools uses the PowerSchool student information system to manage the lunch program. The program has individual accounts for each student rather than family accounts.
All parents will access their lunch account information using the PowerSchool Parent Access Account you created at registration. Contact the school if you forgot your Username or need your password reset.
PowerSchool Lunch payments methods:
Send a check or cash to the school office with an amount specified for each child. If cash or check is received without a breakdown by child in the family, then the deposit will be split evenly between your students.
Parents may use the online e~Funds program to deposit lunch money. e~Funds is an online electronic payment service company. A quick link can be found on the opening page of this Web Site. e~Funds offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments on-line for a small fee.
When a student’s account falls below a positive $10.00 balance you will receive a Blackboard Low Balance email notification ($5 for families who qualify for reduced lunches). If you feel your account is low or if you receive notification it is VERY IMPORTANT that funds are deposited before your students’ next meal. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THESE E-MAILS.
It is the family’s responsibility communicate with their students and monitor their lunch account(s) which can be viewed through your PowerSchool Parent Access Account. When you receive a Blackboard Low Balance e-mail PLEASE either send additional funds or check the lunch account(s) using you PowerSchool Account. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THESE E-MAILS.
Families that qualified for the “Free and Reduced (F/R) Lunch Program” last year will be given a thirty (30) school day grace period to get a new application filled out (if qualified by income). If you receive a letter from the school stating that your family automatically qualifies, a paper application is not required, these letters are mailed out prior to school registration day.
Income based applications must be received by the 30th school day of the school year or benefits will be discontinued until a new application is received. Any monies incurred for lunch will be the responsibility of the family. If there is a time lapse and a new application is received after the 30th school day, new benefits will start the day the new application is received (back-dating is not allowed by the Federal Lunch Program). Families that qualify would be eligible to receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch.
K4 - 8th Grade are offered Breakfast and Lunch daily, and have the option to purchase a milk if bringing a cold lunch. Milk only is an Ala Carte Item and is not included in the Free/Reduced Federal Program.
9th – 12th Grade also offers Breakfast and Lunch daily; in addition, they have access to purchase an ”Extra Entree Item” and other Ala Carte items
Just a reminder, the lunch program is NOT a Credit Card, students need to have balances in their lunch account to cover the cost of their meals.
If you have questions or need assistance with accessing your online lunch account, please call: Linda Manteufel, 429-2153, ext. 210 during school hours.
