Parents

Pay Online for Lunch Fees

Attention: Kokomo School Corporation Parents

Kokomo Schools has implemented the state-of-the-art online MealpayPlus system through Horizon Software International. The online payment system is available now for lunch fees.

Your children’s lunch fees may be paid through online (MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or e-checks [via ACH]) payments. To use this online payment system, parents must go to the Horizon website [http://www.mealpayplus.com] to register for an account. To register, parents must know their student’s school ID number, which is available on the PowerSchool parent access page (Grades 3-12). For K-2 parents, this student ID number has been shared either at parent-teacher conferences or through customized inpidual letters mailed to your homes.

Once an account is created, parents then can add funds to their children’s lunch account. Within this account, parents may view their payment history for 1 year, as well as the children’s purchase history for 30 days. While this account allows parents to view their children’s balance, payments and balances are updated virtually real-time.

Parents need to be aware that a single online payment of less than $50 will include a 4.75% transaction fee. This 4.75% fee is absorbed by the school corporation for parents making a single transaction of $50 or more.

Security is a priority with the MealpayPlus system as data is encrypted at 128-bit encryption … with SSL/secure socket layer. VISA protocol for its CISP/Cardholder Information Security program is followed within CISP certification, which is VISA’s highest security certification. MealpayPlus offers a Confidentiality Statement and User Agreement on the MealpayPlus website. Also, MealpayPlus does not sell user lists to anyone.

If parents encounter problems while creating an account, or while making an online transaction, they need to click on the “Need Help” icon at the Horizon site or they can call toll free between 9 am to 6 pm (EST) at 800-859-6508. After hours, parents will be asked to leave a number and they will be called the next business day. Parents also can send emails to support@mealpay.com.   

Please understand that parents may continue to pay at the school via cash or check, but Kokomo Schools simply wants parents to know that they now have an additional option of paying online for lunch fees.
