Accessing & Funding an EZ School Apps Lunch Account

EZ School Apps – Parent Instructions

How do I access my student’s EZ Account?

Providence Academy has created an account for you and for your student(s) using your parent email address.  If you haven’t yet done so, you need to set a password for your account:

How to Set Your Password:  

  1. Go to www.ezschoolapps.com and select Parent Login and click on Forgot Password
  2. When prompted enter your email address and click Send Password
  3. Lastly, check your email for the link to set up your password.

How do I fund my student account? 

One of three ways: Credit Card or ACH or Check. 

How to fund by Credit Card or ACH:

  1.   Log in to your account at www.EZSchoolApps.com select “Parent Login” 
  2.   The first time you’ll set up either a credit card or ACH account. Select the Credit Card/ACH tab for either payment type. If selecting ACH, you may need to attempt multiple times to connect your bank; however some banks do not “participate” with EZ and are unable to connect. EZ accepts VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER.
  3.   Once the Credit Card or ACH is set up: Add money into your student’s account by selecting Meal Payment.

TIP: If you have multiple students: add a lump sum into one student account and then transfer money into the other student’s accounts using the “Transfer Between Students” button.

By Check: You may also pay by check, payable to PA. PLEASE PREPAY LUNCH FOR THE SEMESTER. (Approx $500) No fee charged. You may send a lump sum for all your students and clearly indicate how much $ goes into each student’s lunch account. We request you still set up your EZ Lunch account password so that you can track your student purchases and see their account balance.

Send lunch checks (payable to PA) to Beth Trombley, EZ Lunch, Business Office.

Many more details about our lunch program are found on our website: www.providenceacademy.org/lunch-menu/

EZ Lunch Account FAQ’s

How EZ is this system?

Each student has a photo ID card with their student ID number in barcode format. This is scanned in the kitchen when they make purchases and charges appear immediately in their EZ lunch account.  Once parents log in and set up a password, they’ll be able to see what their students are purchasing for lunch (and breakfast). 

What if the balance falls below zero … may they still purchase lunch?

YES! We request that you fund your EZ Lunch student account(s) before purchases are made. However, no student will be denied a food purchase if their balance is negative. You will receive “negative balance” emails to remind you to fund their account.

 

How much might my student spend at the PA Cafe?

Daily lunch is $6.00 for the Main Line/Grill Line/GrabNGo which includes soup and salad bar and up to two small beverages. Lower School students (PK thru 5th grade) may only purchase the main line entree. Middle School and Upper School students may purchase many other options. More details and pricing may be found on the PA Website: https://www.providenceacademy.org/lunch-menu/

 

So … how much is a semester’s worth of lunch?

A semester has 84 days so if your student eats a main entree lunch every day ($6.00) then they will spend approximately $500. If they purchase breakfast foods and other lunch items then factor in more. Please see additional menu pricing on our website lunch page.  

 

What happens to my leftover balance at the end of the school year?

The funds will stay in student accounts and will carry over to the next school year. The funds will be refunded upon your request,  transferred to a sibling or we will refund it if your student is not returning for the next school year.

About PA Chef Marshall Morris

“Chef Morris’s penchant for broadening [Providence] students’ palates harkens back to his childhood kitchen in Jamaica, where he learned simple stove and pan cooking from his mother. As one of 10 children, Morris understood early what it takes to cook for a crowd. Later, his interest in food took root when he studied agriculture in Jamaica.

After meeting his wife, Susan, Morris moved to Minnesota in 1984. He went from busboy to food server, eventually becoming the restaurant manager at the former Radisson University West Bank, Minneapolis. He went on to receive an associate’s degree in hotel and restaurant management at Normandale Community College, and became Providence’s head chef with Signature Dining, now Taher Inc., 14 years ago.

With a team of 15 employees, Morris feeds most of the school’s more than 800 students, as well as around 70 staff members. “That’s the tricky part,” Morris says of tending to the tastes of a wide audience. While the main menu is the same for all grade levels, the middle and high schoolers are offered a grill line and sandwich bar.”
