The federal program which paid for ALL school student meals has expired.  For the upcoming school year, grades 5-12 students will have to pay for breakfast and lunch.  Preschool through 4th grade is still free for ALL students through a different federal program.  Parents are encouraged to fill out the Free & Reduced Lunch form to see if their students qualify for free or reduced priced meals.  The Free & Reduced Lunch form is in the JMC Parent Online Registration.  Filling out this form will determined if students qualify for not only free or reduced lunch but also free or reduced Material Fees, Drivers Education Fees, etc...  You will be charged full fees if you do NOT fill out a Free & Reduced Lunch form.



The first step to this is you must log into JMC Parent Online.

Once at the JMC Parent Online sign in screen, you need to have a parent online account and log in.  After you are logged in, you click on Lunch in the menu on the left hand side.  At the top of the screen you will see JMC Online Deposit (Family Account).  This is in small letters and not very noticeable.  You click on that link and it will bring up a screen where you can input how much you want to deposit and ask for credit/debit card information.

If you do not have a JMC Parent Online Account, contact any school office.
