SendMoneyToSchool.com allows parents to gain access to the activity of their child's Nutrition Services account. There is no minimum requirement to make deposits online and the fees have been eliminated!! This service is now FREE to all parents. Deposits can be made at school with CASH ONLY.
Prepaying for meals is convenient for you as a parent, for your child, and for the cashiers during meal service. Monies are drawn from the account ONLY when your child eats; and if your child moves to another WCS school, the funds follow them. As a parent, you can indicate that money on account can go for meals only and ala carte purchases must be paid in cash. This is not an issue in the Elementary schools, but does come into play in the Middle and High Schools.
