School Lunch Accounts
- Help your child learn their lunch number! It is as easy as learning their phone number.
- Consider sending money with your student on a weekly or monthly basis. This helps the lines move quicker and gives the student less opportunity to lose or misplace their money.
- Family Access, a Web-based student information service, allows parents to see their child’s lunch account balance. Call your child’s school to request login information that can be sent home with your child.
- Elementary students will be given a hand stamp as a reminder to bring lunch money. Free and reduced-price meals are available to students who qualify.
Online Payment for Student Meals is Easy and Convenient
Sumner School District provides an easy way to add money to your child’s lunch account from home or work anytime. Online payments can be made through Family Access using RevTrak, a national credit card payment processor. It only takes a few minutes to add money using your VISA or MasterCard credit or debit card. To make online payments:
- Click on “Family Access”
- Log in to Skyward Family Access, using the login and password issued to the family. Payments cannot be accepted using a student login and password.
Use your MasterCard or VISA (debit or credit card). Payments made through Family Access will immediately be posted to your child’s lunch account. A $.75 fee will be applied at checkout for the convenience of making your online payment. Lost your password or login? Please contact the school office for assistance. Credit and debit card payments may be made over the phone by calling the Child Nutrition Office. You may also set up an automatic payment plan to make monthly deposits to your child’s account.
Free and Reduced-Meal Applications
Applications are not valid until they are received and processed by the Child Nutrition Office. This can take up to ten days. Please send lunch with your child until you get a notification letter. A new application must be submitted each school year by October 15. Please complete this three-page application form and return it to the school cafeteria or the Child Nutrition Office. Applications may also be submitted online using Family Access. Check the District Web site for instructions and a link to the application. Each year USDA requires verification of 3% of our applications. This process takes place in early November. If your household is selected, you will receive a letter and instructions in the mail. Breakfast for all reduced-price qualified students is available at no cost this year. Lunch for reduced-price qualified K-3 students is available at no cost this year.
Lunch Menus Are Going Green!
Monthly lunch menus are posted on the District Website.
Nutritional Information for Families
Menus and nutrition information are available on our Web site. If your child has specific nutritional needs, please call the Child Nutrition Office for assistance. All meals served at the elementary schools, by this department, are peanut-free. A variety of fruits and vegetables are offered daily at all schools with a take as-much-as-you-can eat-salad bar.
New Meal Plan
Help us help your child have an even healthier lunch. Each child will take a serving of fruits and/or vegetables with their breakfast and lunch. Many of our food choices will be reformulated to make our already healthy meals even better! We appreciate your support.
All programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture are available to everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, age,sex, or disability.
