Our school district is excited to announce the launch of a new online service* that will allow you to monitor your children’s lunchtime purchases, track what your children have been eating for the past 30 days, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low. Student debit account deposits can be made through ACH payments or by credit card. Each child’s account will be updated throughout the day. In order to take advantage of this convenient new service, you will need to create a parent account. This requires you to:
After you receive the “verification code” you may begin to add your children’s information. To do this, you will need to:
Note: A parent account can be linked to many children, but a child can only be linked to one parent.
We urge you to take full advantage of this system by making deposits into your children’s accounts on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis. You are free to choose the amount of each deposit. Any money that is not spent by the end of the school year will be available the following school year. If you have any questions about this or any other food service program, please contact Healthy Innovations Office at 520-495-5533.
Each month we host a curriculum corner night. So far this year we have had terrific topics: Using synergy to speak with your scholar, A day in the life of an OI scholar and Data. Each of our meetings is accompanied by a slideshow that we think would be helpful to share with you.
