  • Low Balances:  we will send home 2 notes from school (1st green, 2nd red) when your child’s balance is low.  We will also send an email on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.  Check backpacks and school folders for notes from us or if your child forgot to turn in a check!

  • Send checks (made out to Jenison/Hudsonville School Food Service)  or cash with your child in a sealed envelope with a deposit slip and the student’s first and last name on the outside of the envelope.  You can use one envelope and one check for more than one student butplease be sure to include a note so we know how much money to put in each account.
  • We recommend that you try to keep at least $5.00 in your student’s account so that they can make purchases without worry!
