Wordware is the computerized prepayment system for school meals in our districts. Each Student is issued a 4 digit lunch ID number that allows purchases to be deducted from a family account. Elementary teachers use a checklist to keep track of which students take hot lunch or milk, and their name is verified in the cafeteria as the students pin number is scanned. Middle School students enter their pin number as they go through the lunch line. The system works the same way as a checking account. Your family must maintain a positive balance in order for your child to draw purchases from it. You are encouraged to send regular payments on a weekly or monthly basis to cover anticipated meals. The money remains in your account until your children draw from it.

Family accounts are established for all families in the North Shore Consortium schools. It is not necessary for families to write individual checks for each student in the family. Money for this lunch account can be deposited by sending a payment with any child or on line by clicking the “Make a Payment Online” button above.

On line payments can be made with your credit card or electronic transfer from your bank account. You will use your Family ID Number, and PIN number (the last 4 digits of your phone number). The first time your access Efunds for on line payments, you will be prompted to set up your own password.

Payments by check made out to “North Shore Consortium Food Service” or cash will be accepted in any school cafeteria. Please write your child’s name on your check and on the envelope, in case it is misplaced. Payments need to be turned in directly to the kitchen by 10:00 am in order to be available for lunch that day.

You also have the added convenience of being able to check your account balance, and review the last 2 weeks of purchases and payments at any time you have access to the internet! Click the “Check Account Balance” button above. You will use your Family ID Number, and PIN number (the last 4 digits of your phone number).

If you have a concern regarding your middle school child’s purchases, please complete a Lunch Restriction Form and turn it in to the school office or cafeteria. You have the ability to set limits on your child’s account as you feel necessary. Limit examples may include setting a maximum dollar amount to be spent each day, Pure Health snacks only or no a la carte. If you send in a restriction, it will appear on the screen to alert the cashier when your child accesses their account.
