Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives 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.

Brookhaven School District Charge Policy
Neither students nor adults will be allowed to charge meals. The Child Nutrition Department will send “low balance” letters home with students to remind parents to send money. We will also provide envelopes to elementary students for breakfast and lunch payments. We also have an online payment option available. Please visit the "Pre-Pay Options" tab on this site to sign up for My School Bucks. You may also sign-up to receive emails to alert you to your child’s balance on account. We will make every effort to ensure that parents know the child needs money on their account. If the child comes to the cafeteria and does not have money, he or she will be sent to the office to borrow money or to call home for money. Repayment of the loan is the responsibility of the student/parent.
