Notes from the cafeteria
Meal prices: Breakfast $1.25, Lunch  $2.70
A la carte has already started. If a student’s lunch account balance is below $0 they are only allowed to purchase a lunch with no extras.  If you would like to keep track of your student’s account please sign into paypams.com. This is a way to be notified when the account runs low and to see details of what your student is buying.  You may add money to your student’s lunch account by sending in cash or a check to your student’s teacher, or you may use a credit card via paypams.com.  Please make sure that any cash or check payments are clearly marked with the student’s name.  If you placed a restriction on your student(s) account last year, it will stay on the account until you notify the cafeteria manager. If you would like to place a restriction on your student’s account you may send in a note to your student’s teacher, or email the cafeteria manager at Teresa.A.Spengler-Butrimas@stjohns.k12.fl.us.


eSchoolPlus Home Access Center (HAC)

Once returned, access information will be given to your child within three school days. Learn more about eSchoolPlus and Home Access Center (HAC). Here is the link for the Student Info Update Form. You can also check the district site for more information. Mrs. Karl is available here at JCE to help answer any questions.
