Attention Parents or Guardians:
The Wise County Schools Food Service Program is dedicated to serving students quality meals at a reasonable price. It is our intent that children are not hungry at school; however, it is the responsibility of parents or guardians to pay for meals provided or provide breakfast or lunch from home. We realize that meal money may be forgotten or lost, so as a courtesy, we do allow students to charge. The charge limit for meals is $10.00 for elementary and middle school students. The charge limit for high school students is $5.25. A la carte or “extra” items may not be charged at any time.
Once a student’s balance reaches the charge limit, the food services program will provide the student an alternate meal until the balance is paid in full. The alternate breakfast is a graham cracker and milk. For high school students the alternate lunch is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and milk. To prevent your student from receiving an alternate meal, please ensure that he or she has money on their cafeteria account.
You may check your student’s balance by calling the Cafeteria Manager at your student’s school, the Food Service Office at 328-8017 or through MyPaymentsPlus. This program may be accessed online at or toll free at 866-547-9924. You will need your student’s ID number for MyPaymentsPlus.
We strongly encourage prepayment for meals and purchases because cash sent daily with students can easily be lost or spent on other items at school. You may prepay at the school with a check or cash. When sending a check, please include your student’s name and unique pin number on the memo line or consider using MyPaymentsPlus to put money on your student’s account online or by phone.
Free and reduced meal applications will be sent home on the first day of school. We encourage families who think they might be eligible to submit an application as soon as possible. Charges incurred before a free or reduced status is determined are the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
We thank you for your cooperation.
