A school picture will appear on the computer screen for the cashier to identify the student to further ensure the security of the student’s account.  Any special dietary concerns or restrictions will appear in a special pop up box with the student’s account information.

Methods of payment include:

  • Online payments – Access the online payment system through PowerSchool parent account. Contact your child’s school building with any PowerSchool account login questions.  At this time, you cannot make payments through the Olentangy or PowerSchool mobile app.
  • Cash –Cash payments must be in an envelope specified ”lunch account” with the child’s first and last name, student ID number, and teacher’s name.
  • Check– Make checks payable to “Olentangy Food Service” with your child’s name, ID number, and phone number.  If making a deposit for more than one child, note the amount that should be deposited into each child’s account.  Counter checks cannot be accepted for payment.

The student meal account is a debit card system, not a credit card system. Prompt payment of negative balances is appreciated.  Please see Board of Education Administrative Guidelines 8500D for the meal charge procedure.
