Other Payment Methods

Payments to the meal account may also be made by cash or check at your student's cafeteria.  

  • Checks should be payable to Frisco ISD Child Nutrition and include your student’s ID number. 

  • No temporary checks will be accepted. FISD accepts checks with a full name, street address, home phone, secondary phone and driver’s license number.

  • When paying by check, you authorize the recovery of unpaid checks and the recovery of the state-allowed fee by means of electronic re-presentment. If your check is returned unpaid by the bank, checks will no longer be an acceptable form of payment for the remainder of the school year. 

Low Balance Reminders

Parents of elementary and middle school students will receive low-balance phone call reminders via SchoolMessenger. You may opt out of these calls by submitting this online form. Please allow 24-48 hours for the restriction to take effect. If you have requested your number to be blocked in the past, your number is still blocked. The best way to avoid low and negative balance phone calls is to sign up for automatic payments at

Refunds, Transfers and Donations

If you wish to transfer money to a sibling’s account, donate funds to a student in need, or request a refund on your student’s account, please complete the Cafeteria Account Refund Request Form to process your request.
