Food Service Payment System

A message from your Food Service Staff:

Changes in Federal funding is allowing Esko Schools to begin offering breakfast and lunch to all students (preschool through grade 12) at no cost.  The free meal program is scheduled to continue through the end of 2020, but  Federal funding may end at any time.  Because we don't know precisely when funding may run out, families who feel they may qualify for free and reduced lunch services should still apply online using the  Application for Educational Benefits.

Students will continue to notify their teachers each day if they want to receive school lunch.  Students wanting breakfast may go into the cafeteria between 8:00 and 8:15 a.m.

Dear Parents/Guardians of High School & Elementary students:

Lunch payments may be dropped off in the High School or Elementary Office or brought directly to the cafeteria.  Elementary students have the option of bringing payments to their classrooms for collection by Food Service staff.

Checks can not be “cashed” for amounts over the original purchase. If a check is submitted to Food Service, it will be credited into the student’s account only.

To ensure proper crediting of your child’s account, please put each student’s name, account (PIN) number and the amount you want credited to each child’s account in the memo area on the check. A separate check is not needed for each family member. If paying with cash, please include the same information as above on an envelope.

If you wish to use the on-line electronic payment system, simply log in to Parent Portal and choose the Payment option button on the left hand menu column.  Beginning September 1, 2019, a 3% convenience fee will be charged for credit card transactions.

All students have access to both breakfast and lunch. An alternate lunch line is available for Grades 7 - 12 at the same price as the regular lunch.  "Smart Snack" options are available to Grades 9 - 12.  ALTERNATE LUNCH LINE & SMART SNACK LINE ARE NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
