Pre-Payment Options

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.

Modern family life is super busy. Children in this community are very busy with activities and everyday life is a juggling act. Food service has an online payment option through schoolcafe.com. Isn’t there enough to manage in a family? Let schoolcafe.com make managing school lunch easier with features like low balance alerts, automatic payments, and purchase history.  Schoolcafe.com does offer the convenience of accepting credit card payments but there is a fee attached to the processing. This is the only fee for the account. We will always accept payments, cash or check, at the schools (no fee). Please make checks payable to HPS Food service and put your child’s full name and homeroom in the memo of the check to ensure proper processing. It would also be helpful if it was in an envelope marked school lunch, cafeteria, or food service so everyone will know where the payment should go. This mostly pertains to the elementary kids. At the Middle School and the High School it is easier if students are able to bring payments prior to lunch but if not they can hand the payments in as they come through the line. When students have money on their accounts the lines move much much faster and we are always trying to find ways to give the students more time to enjoy their lunch time break.
