New payment system for meals

The Nutrition Services Department is using a new system for meal accounts this school year called Titan Family Solutions, which has replaced PayPams. All existing account balances have been transferred to Titan automatically, but families need to create an account on the new platform in order to continue adding funds.

Click here to create an account with Titan and add money to your child’s meal account. Instructions are available here.
