E-Funds for Schools

This program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments online.  It is extremely user-friendly and you will have the ability to have lunch payments electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card. The E-Funds Payment System is intended to be convenient for parents, however, you may still send a check, money order, or cash payments to the school with your student or by mail.

The E-Funds for Schools electronic payment service is provided to the school by a third-party service provider. There is a $1.00 transaction convenience fee for each electronic checking payment that you make. The system carries a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge if the payment is “bad.” For payments made by credit or debit card, there is a convenience fee of $2.65 per each $100 increment in the transaction. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.

Please note: E-Funds for School will NOT show balances due.  You'll need to access the "Fee Management" tab in your Skyward Family Access account.
