MyLunchMoney.com | A New Way to Pay for Lunch
There is a brand new way to pay for our school lunches (and even breakfast!) with your student's account!  It's called MyLunchMoney.com--an online interface that allows the parent/guardian to manage lunch funds online with a debit card or credit card.

Gone are the days of just sending in a cash or check with your student to school to fund their cafeteria account.  Although these options are still available, MyLunchMoney.com allows the parent/guardian a new payment option, debit or credit card payment.

Access MyLunchMoney.com to manage your student's cafeteria account.

If you are registering as a first-time user, one of the items that you will need is your student's identification number.  This number is located on your student's report card.  If you do not have your student's report card (or they have not been distributed for this school year yet), you may contact our main office for assistance with the number.  For security reasons, the operator will ask you to confirm vital information that only a student's parent/guardian would know.

The student identification number is unique to each of our students.  This number is valid for all years of education that the student is enrolled in Stafford County Public Schools.
