I remember the rush to get my grade school-age daughter out the door each morning and sometimes forgetting to slip her some lunch money as she ran toward the school.
Well, Edwardsville's schools have solved that problem with a service called MyLunchMoney.com.
Parents can place a balance on their student's account and then use the service's online system to track their child's purchases, set weekly or monthly spending limts and get account balance information. The nifty meal history feature lets parents get information on what their child has chosen from the cafeteria.
Check out the service on the MyLunchMoney.com website.
Senior High and Middle School breakfasts cost $1.10 and lunch is priced at $2. Elementary school breakfasts are just 95 cents and lunch is $1.90. If your family meets certain income guidelines, your students may qualify for reduced price or free meals. You can find the income chart and an application for those programs on the Edwardsville School District food services home page.
