Encourage your son/daughter to learn his/her student account number.
The Smethport Area School District utilizes a computerized debit system for cafeteria purchases. With this system, each person is issued a Personal Identification Number (PIN). Even though the student may be able to receive a free, reduced or full pay meal, the PIN number allows them to purchase a meal without being identified.
The Point of Sale systems allows the parents/guardians to deposit money in the student's account in order to purchase meals or extras. Parents can send in money with their child or they can choose to use the online and telephone based MealPay System. MealPay is a prepayment system that allows the parent to make deposits into their child's account via the web at http://www.mypaymentsplus.com or call toll free at 1-866-734-4691. There is a small transaction fee for making a deposit online. The program fee associated with deposits made through MealpayPlus will be 4.75% of the total transaction. This change is due to steadily increasing credit card processing and development costs. Many other MealpayPlus services remain free, such as receiving low balance email reminders, checking purchase history, and viewing balances. MealPay can also be used to check your child's account balance or view their purchase history. You may also set up an email alert to be informed when your child's account balance is getting low. There is no charge for these services.
Please note that if you make a payment through MealpayPlus, it takes a couple of days to be credited into your child's account. The money may not be immediately available. If you have any questions or concerns on your child(ren)s account(s), please contact Toni Morris, Food Service Director, at 887-5543.
Families are encouraged to apply for free and reduced priced meals. Information and applications are sent home at the beginning of each school year regarding qualifications. If your financial situation should change at any time during the year, contact Ms. Kreiner in the Superintendent's Office at 814-887-5543. The information is held in strict confidence.
Families can also apply for free and reduced meals online by going to the COMPASS website at http://www.compass.state.pa.us. COMPASS allows Pennsylvania residents to apply for social service programs, such as Food Stamps (FS), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Energy Assistance, and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) online.
