Lunch lines move much faster with a pre-paid meal account and this allows students more time to eat, play and relax. Prepayment options offer parents the freedom from worrying about a child's lunch money being lost, stolen or used for something other than lunch. We offer several options for you to prepay your child's meal account. The Food and Nutrition Dept at Mesa Public schools uses an automated student account system which captures all transactions. Transactions, include prepayments and daily purchases. Parents have the flexibility to adjust these accounts according to their needs. We encourage parents to prepay for their child's meals using one or all of the following methods.
