New Lunch Account Systems Launch April 1

Jordan Creek fourth graders enjoy a feast lunch and celebration inspired by the Southwest region.

Starting April 1, the West Des Moines Community Schools will offer a new way for families to pay for and manage student lunch accounts and purchases. Here’s how…

Paying for My Child’s Lunch

You will have one location to make school-related payments. You will be able to add money to your child’s lunch account through the same online application used to pay for bus and other school fees.

Powered by RevTrak, the online payment system provides quicker account updates.
A link to the online payments system, instructions to set up an account and an FAQ will be available at www.wdmcs.org on April 1.

  • Prepare Today! You can prepare for April 1 by locating your Infinite Campus Portal User Name. You will need your Infinite Campus Portal User Name and child’s birth date to make a payment. If you do not know your Infinite Campus Portal User Name, please contact your school office.
  • Use the Current System Through March 30! The current online payment system will be active through Sunday, March 30. The new system will be available Tuesday, April 1.

 

See What My Child Is Eating

The district will also provide a new online tool to check your child’s lunch account and see details of their purchases.

The new online application – called ParentOnline – will allow you to set limits on the number of a la carte items your child purchases. For example, you may want your child to have one a la carte item a day or maybe only two on Fridays – you choose! Restrictions based on dollar amounts will no longer be offered.

A link to the new lunch account tracking tool and instructions to set up an account will be available at www.wdmcs.org on April 1.

  • Prepare Today! You can prepare for April 1 by locating your student’s ID number, which you will need to set up an account. If you do not know this number, you can contact your school or Nutrition Services at 515-633-5088.
