Frequently Asked Questions
Your child must have a positive balance to purchase all snacks/chips from the cart, cookies, ice cream, and 1.25 drinks. They will be asked to put any of those items back until money is paid on the account. This will be done in a discrete and friendly way, but we must uphold our policy. They will still be able to get student lunch items, either hot or cold. If the account is negative $20 dollars or more they can only get one student lunch for $3.25 then if the negative balance exceeds $60 the account will be turned off and they will receive a cheese sandwich bag lunch until the account is paid or the school has been contacted about a family hardship, Please help by looking online to see their balance, or please reach out to Amanda Jones at [email protected] if you want to know your balance.
. Breakfast is offered to all students at the grammar school in the cafeteria, at the middle school office, and the high school office. The cost is 0.75 cents for each cold item, 0.50 for water and $1.00 for a hot breakfast. Everyone is limited to one item and one water.
Thank you for participating in our lunch program at TJCA. I want to explain how a few things work and hopefully answer any questions you may have.
Revtrak is our new online payment program. You only need to sign up for this program if you would like to pay for lunch with a credit card or e-check and be able to keep track of what your children order. There will also be a place for you to make a donation to our feed a Gryphon program or make a bus payment. Your child will have a lunch account and any funds or negative balances from last year have been transferred. There is a link to Revtrak on each menu. You will need their student ID and a verification code. If you have not received an email with your child's student ID and verification code, please contact [email protected]. Add all of your children to your account, make a one-time payment or set up auto-pay for each child, add them to your cart, then you can check out for everything with one credit card payment. You can still send in cash or a check either to the cafeteria with your child or you can bring it to either office.
If you have any questions please get in touch with the food service director Amanda Jones at [email protected].
