Nutrition Services – Your student's meal account balance is displayed daily in the Campus Portal under the "Nutritional Services tab." Please be sure your child has a positive meal account balance for the school year. Parents may add funds to meal accounts by check or cash at the school. Sending cash with your child to school is discouraged. Online payments can be made through the PayPams website www.PayPams.com. A transaction fee will be charged to the user for each transaction. Students must have enough funds in their accounts to be eligible to purchase individual milk, extras and ala carte items. The collections process has been approved for negative meal debt. Those families that can pay, should keep their student's meal account positive to avoid meal debt being turned over to collections. Financial assistance is available to help pay for meals, and many families in this district will qualify. To find out if your family qualifies, please consider filling out an application for Educational Benefits form which will give your family access to free meals and additional funding for the school. Families receiving free meals must reapply each year. Please apply early to receive full benefits. The 2019-20 school year Educational Benefits form is available online at https://stfrancis.strataapps.com. Please call 763-753-7015 for questions. All inquiries and applications are confidential. Paper applications are also mailed to each household at the start of the school year and available in Saint's Quarterly, "Back to School" edition.
