EZPay: An Easy Way to Pay for School Lunches
This conversion will result in a number of changes that affect students and families, one of which is a 2.49 percent “convenience fee” per transaction. Because the Student Nutrition Department is self-sustaining, it cannot cover the cost of the fee for this convenience. The 2.49 percent fee will become the responsibility of parents and guardians who use the online service, and this will be added to the charges for meals on users’ credit card statements. Examples of the convenience fee breakdown follow:
· $25.00 charge for meals using EZPay = $0.63 convenience fee
· $50.00 charge for meals using EZPay = $1.26 convenience fee
· $75.00 charge for meals using EZPay = $1.86 convenience fee
· $100.00 charge for meals using EZPay = $2.49 convenience fee
It is important to note that the convenience fee is paid directly to EZPay, and not the school district or Student Nutrition Department.
Families who do not wish to incur the convenience fee may send checks or cash to school with their student. Students will then be responsible for getting their check to the lunchroom cashiers.
If your student has any funds remaining in a MyPaymentsPlus account, those funds will be transferred to EZPay, and will be available to your student this fall.
Please note: The convenience fee will not apply to payments made for school fees via EZPay.
