The Waterford School District Food and Nutrition Services Department uses the computerized point of sale system called Meal Magic. An account is established for every student in the district using their Student Identification Number. Each account contains their photo, class, grade, account balance along with their ID number. Students at the secondary level enter their student identification number on a pin-pad to make purchases and deposits. At the elementary level food service personnel enters the information for them.

Parents have online access to the students' accounts through SendMoneyToSchool.com which allows them to deposit money in their accounts, check account balances and view the purchase history. There is a $1.00 minimum deposit. All deposits made online at SendMoneyToSchool.com will be credited to accounts within one business day. Occasional processing delays could occur due to circumstances beyond our control. Please see SMTS Browser Requirements below.

Any funds remaining on your child's account at the close of the year will remain on their account and be available next school year even if your child transfers to a new school in the Waterford School District.  All negative account balances must be paid prior to the school year end.

If a student is leaving the district, it is the parent's responsibility to check the student's Meal Magic account. If there is a negative balance, payment can be made with check or cash to the school kitchen or by credit card on SendMoneyToSchool.com. If the student has a positive balance, you may have the balance transferred to an account of another child who is remaining in the district or request a refund check. Please contact the Food & Nutrition Services Office at 248.682.0394 or simond01@wsdmi.org for assistance.

ALL deposits made online will incur a bank fee of $1.50 per transaction. There is no fee for deposits made by cash or personal check. Checks should be made out to the WATERFORD SCHOOL DISTRICT. In the event of a returned check, the amount of the check and a NSF bank fee of $25.00 will be deducted from your child's Meal Magic account.

See the Help/How To/Info page if you would like to set up an email notification when your child's account balance reaches $5.00 or lower.
