• How to pay for deficit / negative lunch account balances: 

    Each student has their own lunch account. Lunch accounts should be prepaid. They are not to be used as a charge account; rather, much like a checking or debit account. If your student's BPS breakfast/lunch account (Family Portal) currently has a negative balance we please ask that you pay this balance as soon as possible by either form of payment:

    1. Online at Family Portal
    2. To your child's school with a check payable to BPS or cash

    Procedures for students with deficit / negative lunch account balances:

    Students will be allowed to charge a complete school meal (entree, fruit, vegetable, and milk) on their lunch account.  Parents or guardians will be notified by email from Family Portal that their student has a negative balance. 


    Students who have negative balance accounts will not be permitted to purchase ala carte snack and beverage items. 

    If you have any questions regarding your student’s lunch account or would like to control what they are purchasing, please visit Family Portal as parents can change these settings. Any further questions, please contact Chartwells Administrator, at 248-203-3966.
