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.

 
District Announcements
School Starts Tuesday, Sept. 2
School starts this Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.  The start time for high school students is 7:40 a.m., middle school students begin at 8:20 a.m. and the elementary start time is 9 a.m.
Please check our website at to confirm your student’s bus route.  Some adjustments to the routes may have been made over the summer.  We encourage families to have students who will be riding our buses to have them ride the bus on the first day.  This allows our bus drivers to become familiar with the students and which stop your child will use.  It also allows the students to become familiar with the process of riding the bus.  Also, as we take every precaution to ensure all students are placed on the correct bus to go home during afternoon dismissal, the bus arrival times at home will be later for the first few weeks.  Please allow 45 minutes in the afternoon before calling the school or pupil transportation regarding a late bus. 
Should you have a student driving to high school, please remind them to allow extra time to arrive at school before 7:40.  New drivers will not have had experience with the heavy traffic and traffic controls at our high schools.
Drivers using Enon Road in Stafford County between 6 and 8 a.m. should expect extended delays as a result of the student traffic and the construction traffic entering and leaving Stafford High School.  The student traffic will be given priority by traffic control.  
Please enjoy the holiday weekend and we look forward to seeing you in school on Tuesday.
