PaySchools Central

Is this your first time using PaySchools Central online?  Here is a quick guide to help you register (remember to write down your password as we can not access those at school).  You will also need each student's ID number.  JH/HS students' ID numbers are printed right on their schedules.  For elementary students, check their welcome packet you will be receiving in the mail for their ID numbers (ask your child, most already know their lunch acct #'s!).

Helpful Tips for Free and Reduced Application

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As Cafeteria Manager, I would like to welcome your child/children to the 2022-2023 school year at Mississinawa Valley Schools.  Please be aware that meals are no longer free due to the USDA program being discontinued in June 2022.  Make sure to stop by the cafeteria during Open House on Monday, August 29th from 6:00 – 7:30 pm to add money to your student(s) lunch accounts.  Please see the following for prices of meals and a-la-carte items:

            Breakfast - $1.50 (K-12), $1.25 (PS)            Extra Fruit or Vegetable - $.50

            Lunch – $2.50 (PS-6)                                             Healthy Snacks/Reduced Fat Chips - $.60 / $.75 (grades 7-12)

            Lunch –$2.65 (grades 7-12)                              Bottled Water - $1.00           

            Main Entrée only - $1.50                                   Powerade - $1.50 (grades 7-12)

                                                                                                       Milk - $.50 (chocolate or white)

Free and reduced meal applications are now available ONLINE.  Families wishing to see if they qualify for free or reduced meals (breakfast $.30 and lunch $.40) need to fill out the form by October 10th.  Please go to which is the same website you use to add money to a student’s lunch account and check balances.  The application process is available in English and Spanish.  If you have any questions about the application, please visit the school website at, click on "District Life, "Food Services" then click on “Free/Reduced Meal App Help”.  Once the application is complete online, you will have an immediate answer to know if your child(ren) qualify for free or reduced-priced meals.  Only one application per family is needed. This process will be much quicker and accessible anytime for families to complete at their convenience before school starts. 

Haven’t used the PaySchools site before?  No worries!  You will just need to register as a new user.  Simply visit, click the “register” box and input your information.  Don’t forget to write down the password you choose (we can’t access those at school).  Once you are registered, you will enter each child’s name and their student id # (this also serves as their lunch acct #).        

Breakfast is served daily between 7:30 – 8:00 am.  All your child needs to do is come to the cafeteria to get a healthy breakfast!  Please encourage your child to eat a tasty breakfast at school and help them get a good start to a day of learning!  We have made big improvements to our menu items with more students eating school meals!

We look forward to seeing the students back at school on Wednesday, August 31st!  Have a great school year!
