Skyward is the computerized prepayment system for school meals in our district. All students make purchases by scanning their ID Badge. Money must be in the account in order to use it to purchase lunch, extra milk or a la carte. There is no maximum amount that you can pre-pay. Cash is no longer accepted in the lunch line, but students can easily drop off payments daily or as often as needed.





Lunch Prices
Elementary  $2.35
Middle  $2.55
High School  $2.55
Reduced Price  $.40
Adult & Visitor  $3.45

Skyward Family Access
Family accounts are established for all families in the Brown Deer School District. Students from each family draw off of this one family account. Because of this, it is not necessary for families to write individual checks for each student in the family. Money for this lunch account can be deposited at any of the Brown Deer Schools, or on line by using the button on this page.

Click on the Check Account Balance Button or the link on the District Home Page.

Parents with their email address on file will get balance notification emails three times per week. A la carte snack items are not included with lunch and students who purchase them on account are charged full price regardless of whether they receive free or reduced price meals. Parents should discuss purchasing guidelines with their children in advance to prevent unwelcome charges to their account. Parents wishing to block certain purchases can contact the Food Service office.

To check your Balance: Click on “Check Account Balance” above, Use your Family Access login and password that has been assigned to you. If you do not have one, any school or the food service office will issue one to you.

You can make a payment by credit card or electronic transfer from your bank account by clicking the “Make a Payment Online” button above. On line access uses your Family ID Number. The first time you access Efunds for on line payments, you will be prompted to create your own password. Payments and purchases are updated each day.

Payments by check or cash will only be accepted in an envelope. Please indicate on the outside of the envelope the student’s first and last name. Each school has locked boxes for collecting these deposits. It is recommended that checks or money orders be used rather than currency and coin. Make checks payable to Brown Deer School District. No Ala Carte Purchases are allowed if a balance becomes negative. A Cheese Sandwich and Milk will be offered as an alternate lunch if balances reach -$10.00.

Any money remaining at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade. Families with non returning students may request a refund in writing.
