How to Pay

In-Person
Upon enrollment in SST Public Schools, each student is provided a lunch account into which money may be deposited for breakfast, lunch, or a la carte milk. Money may be deposited by money order in the school office.
 
Online
You may deposit lunch money online by setting up an account at SchoolCafé. In addition to making payments, you may also arrange for low balance alerts and schedule automatic payments. SchoolCafé is available online and as an app for both iPhone and Android devices.
 

Overdrawn Account

Should a student’s meal account balance fall below $0, they will be allowed to charge up to –$10.00. Once the negative meal account balance limit is reached, the student will receive an alternate meal.
 
Alternate Meals
Alternate meals consist of cereal, fruit, and milk for breakfast; and for lunch, a sandwich, vegetable, and milk. If a student is later approved for free meals, he/she will begin receiving meals immediately. However, the household is still responsible for paying the negative account balance.
