Online Payment System

CUSD's Nutrition Services Department provides parents a convenient, easy and secure online payment service to deposit money into your child's school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child's account balance through a web site called By having money in each child's account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.
Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child's eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and/or lunch within the past thirty days.
