How do we order lunches?
We use an online system for placing orders. Families order lunch a week in advance. For example, your family will have until 10:59 pm on Tuesdays to order lunch for the next week. We send weekly reminders to help families know when to order. If you would like to be on the reminder list, download the DMCS app on the App Store or Google Play to sign up.
How do I set up a MySchoolAccount account?
Follow these instructions to set-up your account. This is a one-time process.
What if we order and my student is absent or doesn't pick up their lunch?
The cost of pre-ordered meals will deduct from each student’s account when the order is submitted. This means that you will be charged for every meal you order, even if your child is absent that day. We fulfill and pay for every order that is placed. Because of this, there will not be reimbursement due to illness or other absences.
What if my student forgets their lunch?
Once we are made aware of the situation, we will determine if there is an extra lunch for that day. If there is not an extra lunch, we will have the student contact a parent to bring them lunch.
Who can purchase a-la-carte items?
Students in 3rd - 12th grade can purchase a variety of a-la-carte items daily.
Will students be able to purchase desserts?
Desserts from Hy-Vee are available on Fridays. Students must preorder a dessert and go through the lunch line to pick it up. Desserts cost $.85 each.
Will you provide meals that meet special dietary needs?
All meals are peanut-free, but are not prepared in a nut-free kitchen.
How can I add money to my lunch account?
You can add money to your lunch account via MySchoolAccount.com or by dropping a check in a drop box located in the MPR or outside the MS Office. Please note there is a fee of $2.00 per transaction for using ACH and a 4.75% fee (based on total amount deposited) for credit card deposits.
