Horizon is the computerized prepayment system for school meals in our district. Students use an ID card to access their account in the lunch line. Each child in your family has a separate account, which means money must be deposited in each child’s account. Horizon 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 now we are introducing new options that make it easy for you to make payments.

You may be eligible to receive Free or Reduced Price lunches for your children. Click on Free/Reduced Meals from the menu above.

You may still make payments by check to the school as in the past. Each building has a secure drop box located by the cafeteria for making payments. Please make checks out to Stoughton Area School District, and write “Lunch Payment” in the memo line. Place payments into an envelope and write the students first and last name on the outside to ensure it is credited to your account. Payments will be credited within 24 hours. Any money remaining at the end of the school year will be transferred with the student to the next grade.

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.
