    Need Financial Help With Meals?

    As the new school year begins, parents, guardians and students should know of the changes to the federal meal waivers program. This crucial information will allow families to plan ahead, explore and apply for assistance.

    If your household budget is tight, there is help in paying for school meals. Children are eligible to receive free or reduced priced meals if their household's gross income falls within the limits on the Free & Reduced Meal application. Parents can complete and submit the application online in the Clifton Parent Portal. New applications need to be filled out each school year.

    How to Sign Up for Pre-payment or Online Payment Account

    Please take advantage of the opportunity to pre-pay your student's meal account.  Pre-paid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and give students more time to eat, relax, and play.  It also gives you peace of mind, no more worrying about looking for lunch money every day or worrying that it might get lost, stolen, or used for something other than lunch.  Think of your student's lunch account like a debit card; funds should be loaded prior to lunchtime.




     Pre-Payment options include:

    • Online
    • Check
    • Cash

    Check or Cash

    You can always bring money personally or send it with your student.  Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID number, their teacher's name, the amount included, and the check number, if applicable. Turn in pre-paid deposits at the cafeteria or school office.

    Online Payments

    Online payments are a simple, safe, and secure way to make payments on your student's account 24-hours a day, at your convenience.
