What is pre-paid lunch?
This is a great way to solve lost money! You can send in a check made out to the Minisink Valley School District. Then the children give their number each day and you can track what they are buying on line. They can use it once in awhile or every day. Ice cream must be purchased with cash. We can buy ice cream on Thursdays. Back to Top
