Debit/Credit Card Deposits for Student Lunch Accounts

PaySchools Central is a secure and convenient website application that allows parents to add to their child’s meal account online over the Internet using any Visa or Mastercard (including Debit Visa and Mastercard).
 
Each child in your family can be set up on the same account. If you decide to put money on your child’s cafeteria account, there is a minimum deposit amount of $20.00. The internet convenience fee will be paid for by the Food Service department. Once the money is put on the account, it typically appears in your child’s lunch account within 4 hours.
 
Please note that we cannot take credit card payments at our office or at the schools; this is only available over the Internet. The use of PayForIt.net is optional; we will continue to accept cash and checks for deposits into meal accounts.

Policy for Lost/Forgotten School Lunch Money

Reynoldsburg City Schools recognizes that occasionally a student may forget, lose and/or encounter zero cash balance in a student’s personal breakfast/lunch account.  

Reynoldsburg City Schools Food Service Department is dedicated to ensuring that students are provided the opportunity to eat nutritious meals at school – as there is a positive correlation between a healthy diet and academic success.  Additionally, Food Service will continue to operate in a fiscally responsible manner. RCS Food Service operations are self-funded.  

In order to achieve this important balance, the following Administrative Guidelines have been developed.
