MySchoolAccount.com - How to make an online payment

Our school district is excited to announce the launch of a new online service that will allow you to monitor your children’s lunchtime purchases, track what your children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low. Student debit account deposits can be made through ACH payments or by credit card. Each child’s account will be updated nightly so that account balance information and payments will be current as of the following day.

In order to take advantage of this convenient new service, you will need to create a parent account. This requires you to:

  1. Go to www.myschoolaccount.com
  2. Click “Create Account” on the top menu bar.
  3. Fill in the required information on the “Parent Account Sign-Up page.”
  4. Choose WWSD Natl School Lunch Program from the “School District” drop down menu.
  5. Create a User ID and Password
  6. Click the “Accept” box, and then click “Signup.” An email will be sent to your email address that will contain a “verification code.”

After you receive the “verification code” you may begin to add your children’s information. To do this, you will need to:

  1. Go to www.myschoolaccount.com and login using your previously created user ID and password.
  2. Enter the “verification code” to verify your account and email address.
  3. Begin adding your children’s information according to the guidelines provided. You will need each of your children’s student ID** numbers as well as (some school districts also require date of birth) to add each student.

 

  1. After the students are added you will be able to view the lunch account activity and make payments to the student lunch account.
  2. If you have 2 or more students assigned to your account, you may make an ACH payment to each account and only be charged for one transaction. Example; 3 students, $10.00 payment to each student, total charge would be $32.00.
  3. If you use a debit/credit card, the fee will be 4.75% of the payment.

Note : A parent account can be linked to many children, but a child can only be linked to one parent.

**Please note you can still send in a cash or check payment with your student in an envelope marked with their name, grade and amount of payment.

We urge you to take full advantage of this system by making deposits into your children’s accounts on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis. You are free to choose the amount of each deposit. Any money that is not spent by the end of the school year will be availablethe following school year.

Special Dietary Needs?

Schools participating in the federal Child Nutrition Program are required to make accommodations for children who are unable to eat the school meals because of a disability that restricts their diet. They may also at their discretion, make substitutions for students who have special dietary needs but do not meet the definition of a disability.

Western Wayne School District’s food service department does not substitute Lactaid Milk in place of fluid milk for students who are lactose intolerant. We also have available in all cafeterias a peanut/tree nut free table for those students that require these accommodations. Additional substitutions are made on a case by case basis for students who have other special dietary needs. The proper documentation must be submitted to the food service department and the school nurse before any substitutions are considered.

Follow the link below for information and instructions along with the student medical form for both disabling and non-disabling special dietary needs.
