Charge Policy

  • Meal Payments

    Cash or check payments are accepted at each school cafeteria. Online payments can be made through Skyward with RevTrak. This system allows parent/guardian to make payments with Master Card, Discover Card, or Visa at their convenience through Skyward Family Access.

    Parents and guardians are encouraged to monitor their child’s meal account balance continuously throughout the school year in Skyward/RevTrak or by contacting the cafeteria manager. Unpaid meal charges can create challenges for students, staff, and campuses. The Student Nutrition department relies on payments to provide healthy, appealing, and affordable meals to all students.

    Parent/Guardian Notification

    Negative account balances will be handled through the following process.

    • Parents/Guardians will receive notification via automated call or e-mail notification twice a week when the student’s account is
    • Once the balance reaches -$5.00, the school cafeteria manager will contact the parent/guardian via email or phone call once a week. The manager may discuss the negative balance with the principal
    • A district-issued letter will be mailed to the parent/guardian once the balance has reached -$25.00.
     

    Charges

    The Student Nutrition Department will follow the procedure above and work closely with the parent/guardian on scheduling a repayment plan for the current school year. The last day of the grace period for parents to work out a repayment plan with Student Nutrition will be on the last instructional day of the school year. Charging will be discontinued at that time.

    The USDA School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs does not allow the carry-forward of negative balances on student cafeteria accounts. Wylie Independent School District must also address negative balances and their effect on the budget at the close of each year, so these charges must be reconciled annually.

    Staff Meals

    Wylie ISD staff are expected to have funds available for the purchase of their meal. Adults can pay via cash or check in the cafeteria or make online payment with RevTrak. For convenience purposes, charges will be allowed. If a staff account balance reaches -$5.00, the Student Nutrition department will email a reminder to the employee. Staff members who reach a balance of -$10.00 will no longer be able to charge meals.
