It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to take care of any negative account balances.

Please take care of the account balances that are due via, cash, check or payments made through MySchoolBucks.

For assistance, NSLP application packets are available during the school year at the campus or on line at Canyon ISD - Meal Sense (National School Lunch Program).

How a la carte items work: Your child may purchase a la carte items with cash or the selections purchased can be deducted from their account. The following is a sample of a la carte items offered by the Child Nutrition/Food Service Department.

Your child’s account can be customized to meet any specific instructions – restriction or allowance of purchasing certain items, or purchasing only specific days of the week – you may designate by sending a letter to your school’s cafeteria’s manager.

We welcome parents, grandparents, etc . . . to join their student for breakfast and lunch.
