Letter from our Kitchen: Ordering lunch for your preschooler


Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  How can my child buy a school lunch?

A.  Here’s how you start.  Every child has an “account” for school lunches.  For payment information, see  “Q.  How will I pay towards my child’s account?” below.  As your child purchases lunches at school, funds are withdrawn from their account.  A letter will be sent home in Friday Folders when the account is low.

Students can choose whether they want to purchase a school lunch on a daily basis.  Some of our students buy their lunch every day, some only once a week—their teachers will ask them each day whether they are buying a school lunch or not.  If you pack a lunch for your child please keep in mind that we cannot refrigerate nor heat their lunches.  Pricing is listed on the menu.


Q.  What about allergy information?  What are the ingredients of a particular lunch?

A.  The new online lunch menus include this information.


Q.  How will I know if my child’s account is running low?

A.  Check your balance in the Campus Portal – click “Lunch Balance” in the left column.  This balance may be a day behind.  School office staff do not have access to this information.

When first setting up your account with MySchoolBucks, Please Note:  We are listed as “Montessori Charter” – so scroll down to the “M’s.”  AND you will need your child’s date of birth or Student ID number which you can get from the Campus Portal.

Alternatively, you can send in a check or money order payable to “DCS Montessori” but please note in the memo section “Lunch” and your child’s name.  You can attach a note if you want the money divided among other children in your family too.
