It is your responsibility to monitor your student(s) lunch account balance(s) using an on-line account at www.mymealtime.com . The ID number needed to add each student to your account is the same number students use as a “server password” to log on to school computers. There is no cost for setting up an account. Only if you decide to pay on line is there a fee. You are always welcome to send in checks to your child’s school to add funds to your child’s lunch account.
If you have any questions about how to set up an account, please refer to the district website at www.sd25.org, select departments and then food service. On the food service home page select pre payment options. If you need additional assistance please call the Food Service office at 847-758-4883.
Starting April 16th the District will be using an automated phone message to let you know when your child’s account is negative more than $2.65. Calls will be made between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Once your child has a negative account balance in excess of $7.95, they will be called to the office and given an alternate meal**. When adding money to your child’s account online there is a twenty-four (24) hour delay in the money showing up in the account. You must print your confirmation letter or send a check with your child to school to avoid the alternative lunch. Alternative lunches are the same price as the regular lunch and will meet nutritional guidelines.
If your family is experiencing financial difficulty, please complete an application to see if you would qualify for free or reduced price meals. Applications are available on the District 25 website or from the office at your child’s school.
