*Note: We want all hungry students to be able to get food at school. Our district will provide a student who requests a meal with a USDA reimbursable meal, regardless of whether the student owes money for previous meals or has money to pay for a meal. We are not allowed to refuse a meal to a student so if you do not want your student to eat at school, please have these conversations at home.
Meal Payment Options
Breakfast and lunch charges can be paid in the office by check (payable to Salem-Keizer Public Schools) or cash. If you want to use a card to pay, it must be done online at EZSchool Pay. Your online account will also allow you to view your student’s purchase history and set payment reminders.
There’s an App for That
Additionally, there’s an app for both Android and iPhone users that will allow you the same access to information. Just search for EZSchool Pay in the app store. For first time users, you will need to set up the account with your information and then add a student. You can add students using either their unique student I.D. number or their full name and birth date. If you need this number, please contact the office of your student’s school.
