- Payment Options
Below are the options for paying for your school lunches.
JMC Online Payments - ACSD is excited to announce JMC as our new vendor for online payments and meals appliactions (free and reduced). All online payments and meal applications will now be made directly in JMC Parent Portal.
Food Service Payment Online
Cash or Check - parents can send a check made out to: Atlantic Community School District. Payments can be taken to the school secretary daily at each school. No money will be taken in the lunch room. It will be deposited & recorded on a daily basis.
“Payments by check may be deposited electronically or redeposited electronically if your check is returned. You authorize service charges and processing fees, as permitted by state law, to be debited from the same account by paper draft or electronically, at our option. The use of a check for payment is your acknowledgement of this policy and its terms.”
Family Accounts - Money is placed in a family account and electronically deducted for each lunch, breakfast or a la carte item purchased. The computer automatically knows the status of the students eligible for free/reduced meals and charges the account accordingly. If there is no money in the account and the student is not eligible for free meals, the purchase is charged and the student must pay off the negative balance.
If a family account balance goes over the approved limit - the child(ren) will be given an alternate meal consisting of a peanut butter sandwich and milk until their account is caught up. No ala cart items will be allowed and the child(ren) will be denied these items.
The Atlantic Community School District will prepare all learners to be creative, innovative and productive citizens by providing diverse opportunities to learn and apply relevant skills and knowledge in a positive, disciplined and challenging environment.
