Skyward is the computerized prepayment system for school meals in our district. The balance system where funds are placed in advance on the account, and purchases are drawn against the balance. The program is not a credit card type system. Students are issued a 4 Digit Pin number, which is assigned to them when they first enter the school district. Our policy requires all student accounts must be active and current and have a positive balance in order to purchase lunch (for full and reduced priced meals), extra milk or ala carte items. There is no maximum amount that you can pre-pay.
|High School||$1.50||Tier 3||$3.35|
|Reduced Price||$.30||Reduced Price||$.40|
If a students’ account balance becomes low, a weekly reminder will be sent out to parents. A low balance is defined as an account balance with $5.00 or less. When the account reaches $0 or below, a la carte purchases will not be allowed. Families are required to pay in advance for the lunch program and should maintain a positive balance in their account. The School Board Policy states that each family will be given a line of credit not to exceed $25.00. After reaching this limit, students will not be allowed to take part in the lunch / breakfast program until payment has been made and a positive balance has been established. Parents should discuss meal and a la carte purchasing guidelines with their children on a regular basis to prevent unwelcome purchases.
Payments are accepted by check or cash. Payments by check or cash must be in a sealed envelope and the envelope must contain student or family name, lunch ID and account number to assist in crediting the proper account
Any money remaining in a student lunch account at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade. Any refunds of $5.00 or more for students leaving the district must be made in writing to: Connie Vacho, Food Service Director, Monticello School District, 334 South Main St. Monticello, WI 53570. Request for refund forms are available at all school offices.
