SCHOOL YEAR 2021-2022

The cafeteria at Jefferson Local Schools is making changes.  We’re trying to keep up with the ever-changing times.  These times are unprecedented, yes.  However, we are going to great lengths to keep students safe and well fed while they are in school. 


Elementary students will see a few changes:  The students will either be eating in their classrooms or in the cafetorium.  The kitchen staff will prepare their lunches every morning and the lunches will then be delivered to them after they are seated.  


In the middle school and high school, we are introducing an online ordering system. Students will order their lunches online every morning.    The kitchen staff will also be delivering their lunches to them after they are seated in the auditeria.  If students are not scheduled to be in school, they will place their orders on Wednesday mornings for the days they are home and then pick them up from the high school in the back where students get picked up.


Students who are signed up for E-learning will also be placing their food orders online.  However, they will only need to place their order once a week also on Wednesdays.   They will place their order and then pick them up from the high school in the back where students get picked up.


It is preferable that the students have money in their cafeteria accounts to pay for their lunches.   This can be done by clicking on the link (www.mypaymentsplus.com). This option will require a credit card or debit card.  (There is a fee associated with it.) If you need to create an account for your student but don’t know their id number, you can call the school or look at any report card.  This link can also be found on the front page of the website.


For those who do not wish to use a credit card or debit card, cash and checks can be sent to the school with your student.  A change that has been made this year: There will be no cash returned to the student as change.  All money received for cafeteria account will be entered into the cafeteria account.  


Other changes happening in the cafeteria for this school year:

           *Breakfast is as stated on menu.  No ala carte items

           *All meals will be enclosed in a container to avoid contamination

           *Two entrée options for lunch as stated on menu.   No ala carte items

           *Only milk offered with lunch (water can be purchased extra in MS/HS only)

           *Students will not be permitted into the kitchens

           *No microwaves will be available


We are hoping for a successful transition into this new school year.  It will take patience and adaptation.
