School Lunch Payments


Dear Valued Parents,

With a demanding schedule, keeping up with your child’s lunch account isn’t always easy. In an effort to better serve you, MealpayPlus is happy to provide you with some tips on managing your student’s account online.

Did you know MealpayPlus offers free low balance alerts? If you’re not already signed up, you can update your MealpayPlus profile to send you an e-mail each time your student’s account falls below a specified threshold. Here’s how:
1.     Log into www.mealpayplus.com
2.     Select “Manage Notifications” under “Manage Account
3.     Choose your threshold(s) for the account(s) you use and save your changes [A threshold of $5.00 or more is recommended]
Cross another thing off your to-do list with the auto-pay feature. You can set your account to auto-replenish each time it falls below a set amount. Setting up auto-pay is easy:
1.     Log into www.mealpayplus.com
2.     Select “Manage Auto Pay” under “Manage Account
3.     Choose or save your payment information in your secure wallet
4.     Enter your threshold/deposit amount and save your changes [A threshold of $5.00 or more is recommended]
We hope this information will assist you in better managing your student’s account. Thank you for your loyalty and participation in the MealpayPlus program.

Best Regards,
MealpayPlus

Fall Festival on October 28

The Fall Festival at Saratoga Shores will be on Friday, October 28, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Several classrooms will sponsor booths with games and activities. There will also be a Halloween costume contest. The PTA will provide prizes and serve a pizza dinner at a bargain price. This event is not a fund-raiser. It's just a fun family night. Last year this event was well attended and enjoyed. We hope this year will be even better!

The PTA does need some help with food, prizes, and set-up. We have tried to organize volunteer efforts so that no one will be overwhelmed with responsibilities. If you would like to help, you can click here to sign up. If you have trouble with the link, you can e-mail sharkspta@gmail.com, and someone will contact you directly to see if there's a volunteer spot that works with your life. Thanks!


(If you're a room mom and you're going to be helping with a booth, please don't feel like you need to be a superhero and sign up for another volunteer spot. We want our room moms to be happy and sane.)
