Cafeteria Account & Free/Reduced Information

Southwest Local Schools has switched programs for our lunchtime software this coming school year as a part of the upgrades to our existing buildings and in preparation for a move to new buildings next summer.  As a result of this move, the district will be replacing PayPams as a lunch pre-payment software with Lunchtime Software's "My LunchBox" school payment portal.  A link to the new software can be found HERE, as well as on the "Food Service" Department tab of our district website, and in the SLSD Parent/Student Portal.  Parents need to create an account in the "MyLunchBox" pre-payment software, and add their students using their Student ID number.  Once you have added your students in "MyLunchBox", existing balances on PayPams will automatically transfer to "MyLunchBox".


Southwest Local Schools is continuing our participation in the National School Lunch Program for this school year.  If you are interested in applying for free or reduced lunch prices for this year, the link can be found HERE, and also on the Food Service Department portion of our district website.  You can apply online in advance of the school year starting (or anytime during the school year) in order to get approved for free or reduced lunch.  Paper copies will be available after the school year starts for those parents without access to the online application.
