Managing Your Student's Account

Accounting System | Depositing Money | Auto-Replenish

Computerized accounting system for all students and accounts

  • Each student has an ID card for their individual use that works like a debit card. Each time a student purchases a meal, the price of the meal will be deducted by reading the ID number on your child's debit card. Elementary students' cards remain at school to reduce the risk of lost cards.


    A la carte items at Jefferson Junior High (e.g. baked/reduced-fat chips, water, granola bars, fruit juice, etc.) can also be purchased with the debit card, as long as the student does not have a negative balance.


    A student's ID/debit card is already activated.  The weekly cost of a daily breakfast and lunch is $29.00 for elementary students (five breakfasts at $2.30 and five lunches at $3.50) and $29.50 for junior high school students (five breakfasts at $2.30 and five lunches at $3.60). Any amount may be deposited at any time via Skyward Family Access

Depositing money to your child's account

  • Effective March 2, 2020, payment for all food service items must be made online through Skyward Family Access (debit/credit card, eCheck) or with cash/check using the form below.

    Parents can monitor their child's account online in Skyward Family Access, which will show his/her food purchases and account balance, and allow you to deposit funds. Payments can be made in Skyward Family Access any day, any time and is the strongly preferred method of payment. All payments will be applied to your child’s account for use the same day as long as it is received by 7:00am for breakfast and 10:30am for lunch.
