Credit card payments will be taken through the website at  A convenience fee of $2.25 per transaction is charged for online payments.  Parents placing money into multiple student accounts will only be assessed the fee once per total deposit.  The South Williamsport Area School District does not receive any portion of the convenience fees.

Other Payment Options

Payments in school:

Checks are preferred with student name & PIN # on the memo line.

Cash deposits need to be placed in a sealed envelope with student’s name and PIN # on outside of envelope.

We ask that Elementary students provide payments to their classroom teacher during morning homeroom rather than taking it through the lunch line.  This will speed up the lunch line which will give your student more time to eat.

Breakfast Program

At Central and Rommelt Elementary, breakfast will be served in the classroom each morning. Each child can decide if they want to take a breakfast.  Their cafeteria account will be charged according to their lunch status (free, reduced or paid).

At the High School, students can get a Grab and Go Breakfast in the Mountie Lodge.  They will be permitted to take it to their first class.  Or, if they prefer, they can still enjoy breakfast in the cafeteria before the start of the day or during morning study halls.

If your student qualifies for Free Lunch, they can also have a Free Breakfast everyday.

Special events:

Ice Cream Friday is a special event that we hold every Friday at Central Elementary. Students have the opportunity to purchase ice cream on this day only. All other schools offer ice cream every day as an a la carte option (see section below).

Wellness Wednesday is held once a month at Central Elementary.  It allows students to have the opportunity to sample new healthy recipes and receive nutritional information handouts. This is a fun educational event that we encourage all students to participate in. Please encourage your students to participate in this event as well.

Farm to Fork is done at the High School once a week from September through November ending with the harvest feast (Thanksgiving meal). Fruits and vegetables on the menu will be from local farms.

Recipe of the Month is featured in the High School. This item will be labeled on the menu. This is just our way of introducing new foods and finding new items that the children like so we can start offering them more.

A la carte

These items are open to students in 1st grade through 12th grade. If you would like to put limits on your student’s account, send in a written notice to the cafeteria. Please be specific. Notices that contain “one snack per week” are not possible to enforce; please specify which day you would like your child to be allowed to purchase a la carte items.

Weather Delays

During 2 hour delays, there will be no breakfast at Central Elementary and Rommelt Elementary.  At the High School, breakfast will be available during morning study halls.
