School Lunch Information

We have been notified by our new vendor TITAN Family Portal that they have had technical issues establishing our account to receive online payments from parents.

While they are addressing this issue, our MyPaymentsPlus system will remain available for parents to load student lunch payments online. All payments into MyPaymentsPlus will be automatically transferred into your student’s TITAN Family Portal account within 48 hours.

Parents may also load funds into their student’s lunch account by sending a check or cash to their school cafeteria with their students name and id number.

If your student is new to the district and you do not have a MyPaymentsPlus account, please contact your school cafeteria manager.

Our Titan system should be available for online payments at the end of August. We will send further communication to parents at that time.

  

Attendance Information for 22-23 ...

In 22-23 students need to continue to plan to attend school everyday possible.  If students need to be absent, then documentation (a note) needs to be turned in the next day back.

 

Students have 5 parent notes per semester.  These parent notes will make the absence excused.  These notes MUST be turned in to the school.

 

Absences for medical reasons such as doctors and dentists may be verified with a note from the doctor or dentist.  Also, absences due to funerals, court, etc. may be verified with a note from the funeral, court, etc.  These notes MUST be turned in to the school.

 

The Progressive Truancy Plan below will be followed for students with unexcused absences.  Also, students with any unexcsued absences may not be allowed to participate in any extra or extra curricular activities.
