Funding Lunch Accounts

To order hot lunch, parents must set up lunch accounts for their children.

There are three easy ways to add funds to your child’s account:

  • Online: Every student is automatically assigned a lunch number in My School Account. If you need a reminder of the number, email Cindy Gardner at
  • Check: Make checks payable to St. Francis de Sales. Send it in an envelope labeled with your student’s name and Lunch Program. You can send one check per family – just indicate how much to put on each student’s account.
  • Cash: Send it in an envelope marked with your student’s name and Lunch Program.

Step-by-Step Instructions to Set Up a Lunch Account

  1. Go to My School Account.
  2. Click Create Account on the top menu bar.
  3. Fill in the required information on the Parent Account Sign-Up page.
  4. Click the School District drop-down menu; choose St. Francis de Sales.
  5. Create a User ID and Password.
  6. Click Accept, and then click Signup.

You will receive an email with your verification code. You must verify your email in order to add money to your child’s account.

Create Each Student’s Account

To do this, you will need to:

  1. Go to My School Account and log in using your previously created user ID and password.
  2. Enter the verification code to verify your account and email address.
  3. Begin adding your children’s information according to the guidelines provided. You will need each of your student’s Lunch ID numbers. If you need a reminder of their ID numbers, please email
  4. After the students are added, you will be able to view the lunch account activity and make payments from your bank account to the students’ lunch accounts. There is a $2 fee for each deposit.
  5. If you have two or more students assigned to your account, you may make a payment to each account and only be charged for one transaction. Example: If you have three students and make a $10 payment to each student, the total charge would be $32 (which includes one $2 surcharge).

How Can I Track the Account Balance?

Each student’s account is updated daily so the account balance information and payments will be current as of the following day. An email will be sent every Friday for all accounts, showing the account balance at the end of the week.

If the account balance is in parentheses ( ), this means that the account is overdrawn and the balance is due. Please pay any balance due immediately to ensure that your student can purchase items the following week.

Any money that is not spent by the end of the school year will be available for the following school year. No refunds will be given of leftover funds.
