Paying for Meals

PRE-PAY for Meals through Mealpay

You can prepay for meals with a major credit card by telephone (1-866-535-1707) or through the internet with MyPaymentsPlus. 

To set up a MealpayPlus account, you will be asked for a pin number, the student ID number and the pin number are the same number.                     

When you register online with MealpayPlus, you can view your child's account balance, meal purchases and payment history on the internet, and even be notified by email when the account balance is low.  You do not have to make prepayments to use these features.

You may also pay into an account for your child with cash or check sent to the school. If paying with cash, put it in a sealed envelope with your child’s first and last name on it.  Also, please write the teacher's name and grade on the outside of the envelope.

 
When paying by check,
write your child's (first and last) name and teacher's name on the check.  If you know your student's Cobb County ID number, put it on the check, too.  Use a separate check for each child to ensure that the correct amount of money is applied to each child's account.
 

Please make sure your child has money for lunch every day. If you need to know how much money is on your child’s account, you may call or email the school’s Café Manager.  The cashier can also tell your child the account balance.  See Parent Flyer.

CHARGE Policy 
Cobb County school administration has adopted a LIMITED charge policy.  If a student arrives at school without money, they are allowed up to $6.45 in charges at elementary school and $4.60 at middle school.  Charges are not allowed for a la carte, adults, or at high school.
 
For elementary and middle school only, if your child arrives at school without money for lunch and has reached the charge limit, he/she will be provided an alternate meal (such as a peanut butter sandwich and milk (or orange juice or fruit punch), or a cheese sandwich and milk).  No alternate meal will be provided for breakfast.  To prevent your child from having to receive an alternate meal, please ensure that you send money for your student's meals each day, or prepay for the meals in advance.

Charging for meals will not be allowed during the last two weeks of the school year.  If your child arrives at school without money, the student will be provided the alternate meal for lunch.  No alternate meal will be provided for breakfast (see above paragraph).
