Student Meal Accounts & Online Payments
Parents can load money onto their students’ meal account through three forms of payment – credit/debit card (online), check (online or in person at your child’s school) or cash (in person at your child’s school). Please include student’s name and ID number when submitting payment. Online payments include a percentage-based convenience fee. Parents can also enroll in auto-replenish for their students' account as well. Parents can set up recurring payments to their students' account which ensures the amount of funds in the account does not fall below a threshold they have pre-selected. Parents can set up recurring payments in My Account or directly on the food service payment item.
Low Balance Notification
Lewisville ISD Web Store offers a feature which will add to the convenience of online payments. With Low Balance Email Notification for food service accounts, parents making payments online will receive email notification when their child’s food service account balance falls to $10.00 or lower. Included in the email will be a link to the Lewisville ISD Web Store for parents to conveniently make payment online.

All students are allowed to charge up to 5 reimbursable breakfasts and 5 reimbursable lunches. Students are not allowed to charge for a la carte purchases at any time. Non-students will not be allowed to charge at any time. After the charging limit has been reached a courtesy meal will be offered to the student. A courtesy meal at breakfast includes a piece of toast, a choice of milk and any fruits and vegetables the student has chosen as part of their meal. A courtesy meal at lunch includes a sun butter sandwich, choice of milk and any fruits and vegetables the student has chosen as part of their meal.
Parents/guardians are responsible for meal payment to the child nutrition program. As a student account balance approaches zero, the Child Nutrition staff verbally alerts the student. In addition, notices of low and deficient balance will be sent to parents/guardians at regular intervals during the school year. Parents/guardians are also able to set up further notifications and monitor balances at https://lewisville.revtrak.net.
If a student is without money on a consistent basis, the administration will investigate the situation more closely and take further action as needed. If financial hardship exists, parents and families are encouraged to apply for free or reduced price meals for their child throughout the school year.
If your child has a food allergy or disability and requires modifications to school meals please bring the Food Allergy and Disability Substitution Request form to your child’s physician to complete all sections and sign. Send the completed form to the district dietitian, Elaine Minden, at firstname.lastname@example.org. This form requires a doctor’s signature before any accommodations can be made.
School Lunch: Good for Kids and Good for Your Wallet
As the cost of just about everything continues to increase, school lunch is one meal that is still a great value, both nutritionally and economically! It remains a bargain compared to alternatives, such as bagged lunches and off-campus restaurants.
