Account Payments and Charging Policies
Payments may be made by check or cash. Students may pay the cashier in their cafeteria and she will credit the account with the amount given. The cashiers will inform students when their accounts are getting low and send home a note in their book bag. Payments to your child's MyPaymentsPlus account can be made at http://www.mypaymentsplus.com.Questions or concerns regarding a student’s meal account balance, breakfast and lunch procedures, or account collection activities should be addressed to the cafeteria cashier at the student’s school.
Cafeteria Charging PolicyIt is the policy of Duneland School Corporation that students will be provided with a regular reimbursable meal even when having a negative account balance. The meal charges will continue to accrue to the child’s negative account balance. Procedures for collecting the debt will be put into action once a child charges a meal. Adults will be required to pay for all purchases and will not be allowed to charge.
Please review the Duneland School Corporation Meal Charging/Donation Account Usage Procedure document for more information on meal charging and negative account balances.
