Lunch Program

If your 8th grade student has a balance at the end of the school year, this balance can be refunded or transferred to a sibling's account in the District.  Request a refund or transfer of the remaining balance by contacting the Food Service Director at (708)423-0950 ext. 2160 or dmichicich@d124.org.  Cash refunds of less than $10 can be issued to your student or given to CMS main office for pick-up upon receipt of request.  Refunds greater than $10 will be issued by a District check and mailed home to the address indicated in PowerSchool.  Please be advised that we cannot issue refunds after May 31, 2017. 

Attention CMS Parents
Starting Monday, May 1st CMS students that do not have enough money on hand or in their account to pay for their lunch will not be able to get regular lunch menu items.  Students without adequate funds to pay for lunch will be given an alternative lunch consisting of a meat and cheese sandwich, an apple and a white milk.  To avoid this, please be sure your child has enough money to pay for their lunch.  Students can ask the cashier for their account balance before entering the lunch line if they are unsure of their balance.  
If you have any questions regarding this contact the Food Service Director at 708-423-0950 ext 2160.

How do I pay for lunch?

Elementary

We encourage parents to prepay for as many meals as possible in advance. Cash or check payments should be sent in an envelope marked “Lunch Money” with the student’s name.   Lunch money envelopes are handed in during morning attendance. Funds are uploaded into student accounts by the lunchroom staff. Checks should be made payable to District 124 Food Service.    Should you have more than one student at the same school, you can write one check to be split between them. Be sure to have the student’s names on the memo line of the check.

Electronic payments can be made via SendMoneyToSchool.com. Transaction fees apply. A link as well as instructions on creating an account to the SendMoneyToSchool can be found on the right side of this page.   You will need your student’s lunch ID number to create a new account.   Obtain student lunch ID numbers from the Food Service Director at 708-423-0950 ext 2160 or dmichicich@d124.org.   SMTS accounts follow students through their years in District 124, therefore, if you have an active account you do not need to create a new account each year. If you have a new student entering the District (i.e a Kindergartener) you can add them to your existing account.

How does my Elementary school student order lunch?

We strongly encourage parents/guardians to review the menu with their child and discuss which meal he or she would like to order.In morning homeroom, students must raise their hand when the teacher takes the “lunch count”. Meals are ordered according to this hand count.

How does my Middle School student order lunch?

Students pick their lunch option when they go through the lunch line. There are several hot and cold entrée options to choose from daily. Students scan the bar code on the back of their ID card at the register to access their lunch account. Ala carte items are available to CMS students during lunch. Prices vary from $0.45 to $1.00. Ala carte items include items such as 100% fruit juices, whole grain cookies and reduced fat chips. Ala carte items are not included in the meal plan and are sold separately. 

What happens to the money in my student’s lunch account at the end of the school year? 

Remaining funds stay in a student’s account as they move up a grade in District 124. If you plan to leave the district and would like to withdraw funds remaining in a lunch account, contact the Food Service Director at 708-423-0950 ext 2160 or dmichicich@d124.org.
