We appreciate your support.

New Payment System for Student Meal Accounts

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.

Riding the Bus and Food/Drink

While riding the bus, students are expected to keep all food and drink in their backpacks. This expectation prevents choking incidents, exposure to life-threatening allergens, and promotes bus sanitation.

Building Security Procedures

A visitor screening system helps track visitors and volunteers at each school, providing a safe and monitored environment for students and staff. When parents come to pickup their child(ren), or visitors check in, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system.

Phone Numbers/Staff Directory

Staff phone numbers and email addresses are available on the Bel Air Website at: Bel Air Staff. To reach a teacher via email: firstname.lastname@mvpschools.
