Student Meal Payment System
SchoolCafé is replacing PayPAMS for your online school meal payments. Students' PIN numbers will remain the same and transferred over to the new system. Parents/guardians will need to create a new account with SchoolCafé to transfer funds into student's meal accounts. Click here for instructions on creating an account.
Apply for Educational Benefits (free and reduced meals)
All families in the district are asked to complete the school meal eligibility form, regardless of income or eligibility. Applications for Educational Benefits for free/reduced priced meals are approved annually.If your family was approved for last school year, you will need to reapply to ensure no disruption of meal benefits for the 2019-20 school year.
Bus passes will be mailed out to families around August 21. When you receive the postcard, please be sure to review the information and contact the Transportation Office
(email@example.com or 651-457-9474) immediately if the information is not correct. If correct, be sure to place the bus pass in your child’s backpack, as it will be required for your child to board the school bus.
What if my child does not need a bus pass?
If your student is eligible for District-provided transportation and will not be riding the bus, it is important that you inform the transportation office to change their transportation record for the 2019-20 school year. This ensures the district and transportation company have accurate student ridership records.
