FREE OR REDUCED MEALS
Only students attending West Aurora High School, Fearn Elementary School, and Goodwin Elementary School are required to complete a free or reduced lunch application. Students in these buildings may qualify for free or reduced meals depending on their family income and/or family size. When applying for a student in one of these buildings, please remember to include ALL children in the household regardless of whether or not siblings may attend a CEP school, as qualification is based on total family size.
Students in all other buildings are covered by the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and are eligible for a free breakfast and lunch daily. Students covered by CEP are responsible for the cost of a la carte items and any extra meals or milk.
If your student attends West Aurora High School, Fearn or Goodwin Elementary School, and you would like to apply for free or reduced-price meals, follow the link below:

ADDING MONEY TO AN ACCOUNT
West Aurora Schools have implemented a computerized debit system that will replace the traditional cash registers in the cafeteria lunch lines. Students will still be able to pay cash on a daily basis as they have in the past.
To use the service, you must first enroll at the website. A valid email address is required, as you will receive payment confirmations via email. The school receives a list of credit card payments made on the MySchoolBucks website each morning. You then can go to your MySchoolBucks account and view your student's current balance. There is no additional charge to your credit card for this service; this is a FREE service to the parents of our school district.
A cash debit account is created by making a payment of a specific dollar amount ($5.00, $10.00, $20.00, etc...) to the cafeteria. These funds are then deposited into your student's debit account and are available to your child when purchasing meals at the elementary, middle and high schools as well as a la carte foods that are available at the middle and high schools. There are no limitations as to what may be purchased or how many purchases can be made. The account balance simply decreases as purchases take place.
The Hunger Free Kids Act requires school districts to allow students to charge meals up to $500 annually. If your child attends West Aurora High School, Fearn or Goodwin Elementary and you prefer your child not be allowed to accumulate a balance that high, please complete the “opt-out” form below and return it to your student's school. This opt-out is not necessary if your child attends a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school.
By opting out of the 'Hunger Free Kids Act' your student will only be allowed to charge up to $15 on their food service account.
Students in all buildings are not allowed to charge a la carte items, additional milk or second meals. Students must pay cash or have a balance on their MySchoolBucks account to purchase those items.
