Beginning May 2nd middle & high school students will have the option to purchase a la carte items such as second entrees, sides and beverages to supplement their meal.

-A student’s first meal will continue to be offered for FREE.


A la carte items must be paid for at the time of service either through prior payments that have been made to the student’s school meal account, cash or check.

To help our service lines run smoothly, families are strongly encouraged to utilize PayPams to set up online payments to their student’s school meal account.

-PayPams ( will reopen for online payments by April 25, 2022.

-There is no charge for parents to sign up with PayPams to check their student balances and/or recent purchases.
