Can I prepay for my child's breakfast, lunch and extras?
Absolutely! Our new pre-payment service allows you to make pre-payments and verify account balances over the phone or online. Please visit www.lunchprepay.com for more information. You will need your Child's PowerSchool (formerly NCWISE) Identification number to enroll. This number can be found on your child's report card or schedule.
If you do not desire to enroll in the lunchprepay.com program, you can write a check payable to to your child's school cafeteria. Please be sure and reference you child's name and ID number on the check.
