How to pay for your child's Meals
Dunellen School District offers Payschools for our parents to fund student cafeteria accounts.  
Sign In To PaySchools
  • The meal process is automated for both parents and the school so errors are minimized and the process is standardized.
  • Using Payschools  there is not a chance of lost lunch money from home to the serving lines!
  • Payments can be made by credit card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parents’ convenience.
  • Payments can also be made by ACH (Electronic Check). 
  • Parents can review what their students are actually purchasing along with account balance information.
Cash or Check

During the school year, you may send a check or money order payable to “Dunellen Board of Education” in an envelope to the attention of the “Cafeteria”.  For security reasons, we recommend that these payments be sent in one of these two forms.  Please make sure you put the following information on the sealed envelope:  

Child’s name - School Teacher & Grade - Amount of Money Enclosed

This envelope can be delivered to the cashier when paying for their meal  during their breakfast or lunch period.


Balance Transfers and Refunds

To request a transfer of funds from one child's account to another, or to request a refund for a child who is no longer attending Dunellen Public Schools, send an email to [email protected].


The Dunellen School District is working with Maschio's Food Services to keep our students healthy and safe.  If your child has food allergies, Maschio's can offer a substitute meal plan.  Please visit our Support Page for Parents of Children with Allergies.
