Parents can prepay three ways; online at , or with a check made out to “Town of Belchertown” with student’s full name written in memo area, or cash in an envelope including student’s full name. Checks and cash can be handed to classroom teachers or brought to cafeterias. Be advised, there is a $2.49 fee for every online deposit, so parents are encouraged to prepay for as many meals and a la carte items as they can comfortably afford to avoid multiple deposit fees.  The district does NOT receive any financial benefit from online payments.  The fee is charged to the program from banks for providing secure online fund collection.  Regardless of your preferred method of payment, visit and sign up for a free account to see itemized student transactions in real time.  We start offering a la carte items for purchase in 1st grade.
