Forgotten lunch money? Because there is a real concern for student welfare, schools are provided an inventory of high-grain granola bars and milk to be used as a snack alternative so that no students are left hungry in case they forget to bring a lunch or lunch money. The granola bar and milk will tide the students over until school's out and they can get lunch at home. Students are also offered the option to call home, and parents may pay online using www.EZSCHOOLPAY.COM. Funds typically land in student meal accounts within 7 minutes of the parent/guardian receipt of their online transaction confirmation email.
