Payment Information

New for 2017-2018 School Year

Online Payments are no longer subject to a $1.50 convenience fee.

 

You may send lunch payment for your student’s lunch in three ways:

  • Cash
  • Check (payable to Racine Unified School District)
  • Online payment

When sending your child with cash or check, please make sure the payment is clearly marked for your student. Elementary teachers will collect lunch money first thing in the morning and all money will be sent to the kitchen for deposit. Middle and high school students will hand the payment to the cashier at the end of the service line in the cafeteria.  

To pay online with RevTrak, you will need to have your student’s ID number. Payments made before 8:30 a.m. will be credited to your child’s account on that day and payments made after 8:30 a.m. will be credited the following day. Please note that online payments are the most secure form of payment. 

Limited charges into the negative are allowed to student lunch accounts. Elementary students will be able to charge seven (7) meals or up to (-$18.55) for paid students and up to (-$2.80) for reduced students. Negative balance letters will be sent home with elementary school students twice a week.  Middle school students will be able to charge two (2) meals or up to (-$5.60) for paid students and up to (-$.80) for reduced students. Negative balance letters will not be sent home with middle school students.  High school students are not allowed to charge negative amounts on their student lunch accounts.  If a child is at his/her credit limit or a zero balance, he/she will be served an alternative meal until payment is received.  A la carte items at all levels cannot be purchased if your child is in the negative.  

Your child's balance from the end of the 2016-2017 school year will automatically roll over to the 2017-2018 school year. 

 

Lunch Account Balance Emails

Balance Alert Emails can now be sent directly to your home or work email to notify you when your child’s account is getting low or is in the negative. Emails will be sent out every three days. Please email the Food Service Department at food.service@rusd.org to sign up for these alerts and include your student's first and last names and the school he/she attends. If your email is already on file with the food service software, you will continue to receive the balance emails.  Only one email can be added per child.  

Please contact the Food Service Department at (262) 631-7082 or food.service@rusd.org for information regarding lunch money refunds.
