MyPaymentsPlus / Lunch Accounts
Logo: MyPaymentsPlus online student meal account managementEach student will have their own personal account in which they can place money for purchases. In addition to an online option, payment to accounts may be made to a student’s individual school with a personal check or cash. Personal checks or cash may also be sent directly to the District Child Nutrition Office for individual or multiple students, with a note designating how the money is to be divided. The District Child Nutrition Office is able to place money in a student’s account for all schools. Please make checks payable to “ISD 197 Child Nutrition” and include the student’s full name and PIN or Student ID Number on the check.

All students may also use the money in their accounts to purchase individual cartons of milk and additional entrees. Middle and High School students may purchase healthy snacks using their meal account.

Positive and negative account balances are carried over to the next school year.

Account balances are available by contacting the Child Nutrition representative at your child’s school or by setting up an online account through MyPaymentsPlus (see below).

Back-to-School Open Houses
A representative of the Child Nutrition Department will be present at each school’s open house or picture day held prior to the start of the school year. They will gladly accept payment for school meals and answer
questions about the Child Nutrition program. 

Mail/Drop-off (all grades and schools): The District Child Nutrition Office is located at Henry Sibley High
School. You may drop off payments in person beginning mid-August. Parents are also welcome to mail
payments to: School District 197 Child Nutrition, 1897 Delaware Ave, Mendota Heights, MN 55118.

Online via MyPaymentsPlus (see below)

MyPaymentsPlus allows parents and guardians to make online payments to their child’s meal account. It also enables parents to view their child’s account balance, check payments and view purchase history. Confirmation of payments and low balance reminders can be automatically emailed to parents. The Auto-Replenish feature allows parents to set a low balance amount that will automatically replenish your child’s account when it reaches a specified balance.

Parents need not make deposits via MyPaymentsPlus in order to register an account and enjoy the benefits of receiving low-balance reminders and viewing student purchase history.

MyPaymentsPlus accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover, and American Express credit or debit cards; or you may pay by electronic debit from your Checking or Savings account by providing account and routing numbers. Credit card payments CANNOT be processed over the phone by calling the Child Nutrition Office.

Keep in mind that if you have set up low balance alerts that you must set the notification for the account--Meal or General--in which you are depositing money (or both).

It is strongly recommended that all parents set up an account in MyPaymentsPlus and utilize the low balance notification or auto-replenish feature to avoid having their child(ren) run out of money.  It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure their child(ren) has/have adequate funds in their account(s) as negative balances are not allowed at anytime during the school year. If you have questions regarding your child's account, you may contact the Child Nutrition representative at your child's school or the Child Nutrition Office at (651) 403-7320.
