Pre-Payment Options

The New Castle County Vocational Technical School District offers options for students to pay for meals.  Students can pay for meals daily or prepay by adding funds to their student meal account at school using cash, check, or online through PayPAMS.  Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.  

Our School Meal Funds Procedure gives more information on student meal accounts, prepaying, and student meal charges in the event that a student does not have money to pay for a meal at school.  For more information on our School Meal Funds Procedure click here.
