General Food Service Information
The cafeteria provides quality breakfast and lunch selections each day. Students pay $2.80 for a full lunch meal and $1.80 for a full breakfast. The district participates in the National School Lunch Program and is monitored by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Will County Health Department. Parents and students must create a pre-paid account through the MySchoolBucks web site shown in the right column. By prepaying, parents can assure lunch money is being used for school meals, reduce worries about forgetting or losing money, limit the amount used each day and specify if additional food can be purchased. Cash is not accepted in the cafeteria. Students must use the MySchoolBucks system. Refunds will be issued based on the refund policy shown in the column to the right. Menus change on a daily basis, although some items are available each day.
***Food Service is a CASHLESS system***
Joliet Township High School District uses a prepaid point of sale system called MySchoolBucks.com. Cash is not accepted in the cafeteria. All students and staff should create and fund a lunch account online at www.myschoolbucks.com. Deposits are also accepted through the school Textbook Center/Cashier Office. Your students name and ID number should be included with deposits. All deposits take 24-hours to be processed, so the funds will not be available to use until the next school day. To purchase meals, individuals scan their District ID to deduct the meal cost from their prepaid balance.
Why did the school district do this?
Speed…..Convenience…..Safety…..Parental Control…..Financial Management
1. The lunch lines move faster. Students have more time to eat lunch.
2. Students don't need to carry money. They use their District ID for purchases.
3. Parents set spending limits and can view a history of what your child purchases.
4. Parents receive email reminders for low balances.
5. The system offers recurring payment options, so it automatically replenishes your child’s account based on limits you set.
6. No cost to participate or to add money to a student account.
7. Improved financial accountability.
