Meal Account Information
The school nutrition program is solely funded by the money generated from meals served. The majority of this money is received by the Federal government through reimbursable meals. Therefore, highly regulated by the USDA. The Nutrition Program is not allowed to carry a negative balance and for this reason it is necessary to do whatever we are able to in order to prevent negative balances.
Please refer to the Nutrition Department Meal Charge Policy.
You can check the family account balance and monitor account activity using the Parent JMC link above .
*At any time throughout the school year, if parents/families are having difficulty paying for meals or if the financial situation has changed, we encourage parents/guardians to fill out a Free/Reduced Meal Application. Applications are available in the Superintendent’s office. Call 641-347-5704 if you have any questions or want to request an application be sent to you.
Payment to the Family Meal Account
Online payments can be made using the RevTrak icon above. “Last name” means the last name of the parent and the JMC password is the same one used to check student information. There is no longer a "convenience charge" associated with a RevTrak deposit and it is now possible to sign up for automatic payments.
Checks can be sent with the student. The checks can be given to the Nutrition Department or office personnel.
Cash should be the last resort. It should be sent with the student in a sealed envelope with the family name and amount sent. It can be given to the Nutrition Department or office personnel. Cash is highly discouraged as the Nutrition Department will not be held responsible for lost or stolen cash.
Money received after 12 pm will be deposited the following day
