Meal Accounts

A meal account is automatically set up for each student upon enrollment in SMSD.  Parents are encouraged to pay for meals in advance by making prepayments into their student's meal account.

Students will be served a reimbursable meal whether their meal account balance is positive or negative.  For more information on what makes a reimbursable meal, click here for A Guide to School Meals.

Parents can monitor student meal account balance and purchase history on SchoolCafe.  Instructions for how to register an account on SchoolCafe: English / Spanish
