Elementary Lunch Pre-orders
Announcement: Starting Monday, October 17, our online pre-order lunch system through PaySchools Central will no longer require a payment upon ordering. Instead, students will be charged for each meal when they come through the serving line during lunch and enter their PIN. No changes are occurring to our Paid ($2.50), Reduced ($.40) or Free lunch prices; only when the payment is taking place.
Pre-orders will continue to be a mandatory part of our meal process; see below for additional instructions!
Pre-ordering is easy!
This simple step gives Elementary parents more influence over their student's lunch selection, more confidence in our program, and speeds up the lunch line so your student has enough time to eat.
"Easy to pre order and nice to have a plan for our Kindergartner, to know what she will be having, and to not have to pack lunch on top of everything else she carries to school." DASD Parent
