Food Service uses a system called Meal Magic that runs our lunch accounts.  Meal Magic has a one-stop website called Family Portal where parents can apply for Free/Reduced Meals, deposit funds into their students' meal accounts, monitor spending, and put any account restrictions in place.  Now, all low-balance emails to parents will come from Family Portal. Once logged into Family Portal, click the Notifications button, check the box to indicate that you want to receive low-balance reminders, and set a dollar amount indicating when to send notices. If a parent previously opted out of all email, they will need to uncheck that box to access the low-balance email settings. There are on-screen instructions to guide you.

When a student's balance is at or below the amount the parent selected, an email will be sent. Parents will only receive one request every three days for a given student. Low-balance emails are handled per Family Portal account. If multiple people have access to a student, each person has its own control over how low-balances work for them.
