        How To Guide for Payments

        Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help lunch lines go faster, give students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch. 

        Online Payments

        We encourage parents to make payments online using a Credit or Debit card.  It is safe and secure and the funds are available on your child's account within one to two school days. 

        Parents need to continue to use https://parentconnect.asdk12.org/   The Log In is the PIN provided by your school and is different from the student ID.  If you do not know your student PIN see the directions below to reset the PIN using your email.  If you know your PIN but forgot your password, you may use the forgot password button to reset your password.  If this does not work, please contact your school's registrar.

        Families with students at pricing schools or students that attend BOTH pricing and Community Eligible Program (CEP) schools in one family are encouraged to apply.

        Please include all ASD students in your household on the meal application, regardless of where they attend school, so we may certify your family in one application together. You may apply at any time of the year if your circumstances change due to layoffs, adding people to your households, or decreased income.  Families that have students that attend only CEP schools cannot submit a meal application.

        If all of your ASD students attend CEP schools, no application is required.
        If some students attend pricing schools and some attend community-eligible schools, you should apply.

        Again, if all of your students attended CEP schools this year, please do NOT apply unless one of your students moves into a pricing school mid-year.
