SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAM
To meet the challenges of the day, schools are able to provide children with an energy-packed meal through the School Breakfast Program. Functioning in the same manner as the school lunch program, meals at breakfast provide a healthy jumpstart for the day. Free or reduced-price breakfast is available to eligible children so that no child is left hungry and he/she can concentrate in the classroom.
Breakfast is served daily in the cafeteria from 7:35 – 7:55am and the following meal prices are subject to change.
SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM
To ensure that children are able to grow strong and healthy, the National School Lunch Program was established to provide nutritionally balanced school lunch meals at a low cost for children each school day. Eligible children may also receive meals at a free or reduced price. The federal government partially reimburses schools for meals that comply with nutritional standards set by the USDA. NSLP operates in Hawaii public schools, public charter schools, nonprofit private schools, and residential child care facilities.
Lunch is served daily in the cafeteria from 11:00am – 12:15pm, depending on the grade level, and the following meal prices are subject to change.
Parents and guardians of public school students are able to conveniently manage, monitor and pay for their child's school meal account online and through a mobile app. EZSchoolPay is a secure service being offered through Harris School Solutions (eTrition). The new statewide student meal payment system provides the following online uses:
The EZSchoolPay app is free and accessible on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Please note that there is a 1.99% transaction fee and a $0.13 convenience fee for credit card payments made online.
Parents still have the option of paying with cash or check (payable to Kamiloiki) in the school office and may use EZSchoolPay to check their balance. A service fee ($25.00) will be charged for all returned checks.
