Lunch Accounts--How to Pay Online

MySchoolMoney offers great convenience and the following benefits:
  • You get quick and easy access to your student's meal account 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • The ability to pay for multiple students' accounts with one single payment.
  • The ability to see 90 calendar days of purchases and payments.
  • Automated notification, via e-mail, when your student's account balance falls below an amount you have set.

A one-time registration fee of $10.00 is charged to set up your account. One registration fee covers all the students in your family who attend school in Chatham County. Each transaction will have a processing fee of $1.95 to handle the associated banking fees for credit card transactions, and a maximum payment of $100.00. One on-line payment can be split among all students attached to your account with no additional cost. 

You will need your child's Student ID number, not the cafeteria serving number, to set up a MySchoolMoney account. You can find the Student ID number on report cards/records or contact your child's school. 

The MySchoolMoney.com website will guide you through the easy steps of registration!
