SchoolPay

Please Note: Governor Mifflin is now using www.schoolpay.com for online meal account payments. The SchoolCafe payments option has been deactivated.

A well-balanced lunch is served daily in each of the district’s six schools. As mandated by the National School Lunch Program, each lunch offered includes five components: a protein meat or meat alternate, a grain, a vegetable, a fruit, and eight ounces of fat free or low-fat milk. There is a choice of entrees that are available each day, including both hot and cold selections. There are also three vegetable choices, a variety of fresh fruits and fruit juices to choose from, a “dessert” item, and a variety of cold milks. While at least five components are offered each day, your child may choose as little as three foods to complete a meal.

A meal must have 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable to be a countable meal.

POINT OF SALE

Governor Mifflin School District has a online option that allows you to monitor your children’s lunchtime expenditures and make payments with your credit card. It gives you the capability to view what your children have eaten over the last 30 days. This new program allows the parents to have control of your child’s daily purchases. Each child’s account statement is updated continuously so that the information is current. Payments will now be available the same day.

Any money left in your child(ren)’s account at the end of the school year will automatically roll over to the next grade/school building assignment. All accounts will follow your child(ren) until they graduate from Governor Mifflin. Upon graduation, any balances over $5.00 will be transferred to a sibling within the district or refunded by check to the parent/guardian.
