The Cherokee County School District has changed its school meal pre-payment account system for the 2017-18 school year.
Existing funds in students’ My Payments Plus accounts from last school year have been transferred over to the new K12 Payment Center; students will be able to use these funds when school begins August 1.
Parents must set up an account at www.K12PaymentCenter.com to add funds. You will need your child’s student ID (the 5- or 6-digit ID your child uses to buy meals); if you don’t have this ID, the front office of your child’s school can provide it to you.
Parents can use the My Payments Plus mobile app or website as they have in the past to see the balance that was transferred; once your child makes a purchase in the cafeteria, any transferred balance will appear in the new account.
After you set up a new account, you can add money by making secure online payments using a credit or debit card (the new system charges the same 4.75% convenience fee as last school year) or by sending cash or checks to the school at no additional charge. You can deposit money online into multiple student accounts with one payment. Students also can continue to pay with cash at the cash register.
The new system continues popular features such as the ability to check your balance, track your child’s purchases and receive low-balance alerts by email and text.
Parents also are reminded that CCSD participates in the Federal free and reduced-price lunch program, and applications are accepted year-round: www.lunchapplication.com
