You are able to pay your child’s student fees online as well as put money on your child’s meal account over the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Using PayForIt.net, you can easily set up an account, deposit money into your cafeteria account, set up email reminders, check cafeteria balances, view activity reports, view & pay fees online and schedule payments.
To set up an account, all you will need is: a valid email address, a credit card or ACH check info, & your child’s student ID number. Each child in your family can be set up in the same account. If you decide to put money on your child’s cafeteria account or pay a student fee, there is a convenience fee of 3.9% per transaction for Visa/MasterCard or $1.75 for Electronic Check. Once the money is put on the account it typically appears in your child’s lunch account in 2 hours and student fees are paid right away.
If you have any questions or problems setting up the account, please call the technology office at 419-238-2500.
During the 2021-2022 school year, children and families benefitted from no-cost school meals for all students, made possible by special permission from the United States Department of Agriculture. Unfortunately, the USDA Free Meal Program expired June 30, 2022. Van Wert City Schools and the Ohio Department of Education cannot extend the permissions for no-cost meals for all students.
School meals will be available to all students; however, they will not be free to all students. Households may apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits by September 1, 2022 or anytime their financial circumstances have changed. Applications are available at all school buildings. Eligibility for free and reduced-price lunch is based on federal income guidelines or participation in other programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Ohio Works First. For additional information concerning the National School Lunch Program, please see the U.S. Department of Agriculture school lunch question and answer webpage.
For the 2022-2023 school year, the price of reduced and paid lunches will be as follows:
|Preschool - 5
|ALL GRADES - Reduced
*Breakfast and Lunch are free to those who qualify.
