Prepaid Lunch Account
In order to increase the speed of service in the cafeterias, cash transactions will no longer occur at the registers. Students must prepay for their meal and a la carte by bringing cash or checks to the cafeteria prior to the meal service period; change will not be available. Money can also be added to a student’s meal account online at There is no charge to the parent or student for transactions via the web site.

We encourage all the students at South High to come and eat with us! Please contact me with any inquiries.
