Hawthorn District 73 provides both breakfast and lunch through our food service provider, Arbor Food Service. Students are offered a variety of hot and cold entrees each day. During the remote learning phase, parents/guardians can fill out a meal order form to order breakfast and lunches for their children.
PAY (OR TRACK) ONLINE: During in-person learning, Hawthorn offers a web-based meal management program at https://www.k12paymentcenter.com. We encourage families to use this system to monitor usage and account balances and to make payments. To use the system, families set up an online account using each student’s school ID number. There is no cost for families to set up a student account or to use the low balance email alert to keep track of when to add money to your student’s meal account. The system does charge a $1.95 card processing fee per payment transaction. (This does not generate fee income for Hawthorn – rather the fee covers the cost of credit/debit card processing.) Families can make payments into several student accounts under one transaction (and one fee) by inputting different student ID numbers during the process. The system takes deposits of from $1 to $100 in a single transaction. Even if families do not want to use the system to make payments, please set up your account to assist in tracking your student’s meal usage and balance.
