Welcome to Food Services!

Dear Panther Families, 


First and foremost, we want to apologize about a change in our lunch account system that occurred faster than we anticipated. The service we use, PayForIt, is switching over to PaySchools Central. It's the same company and platform, but they are upgrading software. We thought this change was occurring over the summer to start next school year. They made the change this week unbeknownst to us. 

You will login to PaySchools Central using the same username and password as PayForIt. The challenge our families are seeing is that the "Auto-Replenish" needs to be updated in the new software, PaySchools Central. It will ask for your "Student ID." You can find that number in your Final Forms account when you click on your student's name. It is also visible on your child's grade card. It is possible that your student's ID number and lunch pin are different numbers. 

Again, we apologize about this change without prior notice. If you have questions or need assistance, you may call one of the schools who can help you find your child's student ID number. 

To access PaySchools Central, follow: and click the link on the right. You can find your child's student ID at

We appreciate your patience and cooperation through this change. 

Thank you!

Thank you, 

Jon Burke, Superintendent

Delay Days

On "delay" days breakfast is still served but menus for the day may be modified.  If we have consecutive delays or cancelations the menu may continue to be modified to prevent food loss or spoilage.


Don't forget about Breakfast!  Starting your day with a good breakfast boosts your energy, increases your attention span and heightens your sense of well-being.  If your student receives free or reduced lunch, they also receive a free or reduced price breakfast if they choose to eat with us.
