The most convenient prepayment option is through MealPay. You may also choose to make a deposit to your students account directly.Please place the check in a sealed envelope with your student's first and last name, teacher, and district ID number noted. Checks should be made out to School Name/Lunch and include the students name(s) and the district student identification number in the memo section. If a check is written to cover more than one student in the same school, all the names of the children, the amount per each account and their student identification numbers should be noted on the face of the check.
Cash method: If you prefer to use cash as a prepayment, you should hand deliver the cash to the child nutrtition manager/cashier in your cafeteria.

I had an insufficient check, how can I repay the owed amount?

The amount to be repaid will be the amount of the original returned check plus an additional bank fee of $30.00 plus tax. Repayment should be handled directly with Checksmart Recovery @ 1-888-851-6634 and not with your campus. Additional checks will not be accepted until the insufficient check is paid directly to Checksmart Recovery. After checks have been returned unpaid to Birdville ISD, the district reserves the right to no longer accept any checks from students living in that household. The parent/guardian will be asked to send in cash, a chashier's check, a money order or use MEALPAY https://www.mypaymentsplus.com/ ) with a personal credit card for payment on account.
