Paying For Meals

  1. Students can bring a check to school to load to their meals account. Checks should be given to the cafeteria manager and be made out to the "Prince William County Public School's Food and Nutrition Department."
  2. Parents/guardians can use to fund their student's meals account.
  3. Students can pay cash each day.

We recognize that occasionally a parent may inadvertently overdraw a checking account and a check may be returned by your bank. In order to recover these funds in a private and professional manner, Prince William County Public Schools has contracted with CHECKredi for collection of returned checks. If your check is returned for insufficient funds, it may be electronically presented to your bank for the face value, plus a $40 processing fee, and any bad check return fees charged by your financial institution. This action will be taken without further notice. By paying for your purchase with a check, you are accepting this check acceptance policy.
