Skyward is the computerized prepayment system for school meals in our district. Students use a pin number to access their account in the lunch line. Skyward is declining balance system, similar to a checking account. Money must be in the account in order to purchase lunch, extra milk or a la carte items. There is no maximum amount that you can pre-pay, and there are options that make it easy for you to keep track of your family account and make payments.
Click on the Stewartville School Store button to check your balance or make an on line payment into your account.

Skyward Family Access
Parents are able to Access Family Statements on line to check a balance, or review charges by student through family access.
Click on the Check Account Balance Button or the link on the District Home Page.
We are pleased to announce that parents can make payments for food service meals using a credit card or debit card through the online store. Parents need a Visa, Mastercard or Discover card, and your Family Access login and password. Google Chrome or Firefox are the recommended browsers when accessing the online store.
Students will be reminded in line when the family balance is drops to $5 per student, so they have ample time to bring in a payment. Automated phone messages or emails will be sent as a reminder when family balances are low. If the family balance does not have enough money to cover purchases, a note will be sent home and the student will be given an emergency meal. At that point, charges will not be allowed on the account until a payment is made.
Students who receive free or reduced price meals have the same lunch options as students who pay full price, however A la Carte snack items are not included with lunch. Students who purchase them on account are charged full price, regardless of whether they receive free or reduced price meals. Parents should discuss purchasing guidelines with their children in advance to prevent unwelcome charges to their account.
Payments by check or cash are accepted in the office or kitchen in each school. Please use an envelope, clearly marked with the students first and last name, and lunch id. Any money remaining at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade.
Can I limit my child purchases on a la carte?
Yes, you may put a dollar limit on the account per child or block the a la carte option entirely. You just need to call our office and we can set that up for you.
