Please check the newsletter weekly for dates and times of events.
Convenience – The need for sending cash or checks is eliminated. You can make payments at any time of the day or night. With the Auto Pay recurring payment option, your first transaction can be your last.
Peace of Mind – You will know that your child always has money available for meals and you can check the meal account balance online.
Account Information – In addition to checking account balances, you will also be able to go online to check what your child is spending each day and what items they are purchasing.
Faster Lunch Lines – As cash sales are eliminated through online deposits, lunch lines speed up in Junior and Senior High Schools, giving students more time to eat.
Before you begin enrolling, you will need to obtain the student ID number for each of your children. This is not the PIN number they use in the lunch line. Parents can obtain this number from the school or by calling the food service office at 402-537-6250. Once you have obtained the student ID number, it's easy to enroll!
Reach Out Club
This club is open to all 2nd and 3rd graders. We meet once a month to work on projects for the community. Students wanting to attend go to Mrs. Moran's classroom after school and have parents pick them up out the front doors at 4:00pm. Kids Club students should check in with Kids Club BEFORE coming to the classroom. Some projects in the past have included making blankets and chew toys for the Nebraska Humane Society, making scarves for students in need, making gifts for those who serve our country, spreading random acts of kindness and filling over 300 Easter eggs for Habitat for Humanity. If you have any ideas or know of a need in our community please email Mrs. Moran, firstname.lastname@example.org.
