Meal Accounts

The district uses an Individual Meal Accounting System where each student has their own individual account.  Meal accounts are debit accounts, therefore money must be in the account in order for the student to use it.  We encourage parents/guardians to pay in advance of the first day of school to alleviate the time constraints students experience those first days of the school year.

Money can be deposited into your child’s meal account via these options:

1.  Food Service Drop Boxes located in each elementary school office or middle and high school cafeteria ala carte windows.

2.  Using credit/debit cards on line at our school district web site:

http://bemidji.revtrak.net/tek9.asp

3.  Mailed to the Bemidji School District Food Service Dept.:  502 Minnesota Ave. NW, Bemidji, Mn 56601

If sending a check, please include the student’s name and PIN.  Make checks payable to:  ISD #31 Food Service.  When sending cash, please place it in an envelope with the student’s name and PIN on it.

 

Charging

Charging of school meals is discouraged.  Food service staff will contact parents/guardians of negative meal accounts to arrange payment.

 

Refunds

Since the entire district uses the Individual Meal Accounting System, accounts for students with positive or negative balances will be credited for the next school year.  Positive balances from one sibling will be transferred to another sibling to zero out a negative balance.  Students graduating from high school may have their account balances transferred to a younger sibling by calling the Food Service Office at: 333-3100 ext 31141.  Refunds from accounts will only be sent if the balance is $5.00 or more.  A request for a refund must be made by the parent/guardian when a student is leaving the district.
