To encourage prepayments, and to offset the cost of the $2.49 payment convenience fee, Licking Heights Local Schools is instituting a "bonus meal" program. Parents who choose to use online meal payments beginning 12/12/17 will be eligible for a free "bonus meal" if prepayment is made for 20 meals in one transaction, per student. This equates to a $50 prepayment for elementary meals and a $55 prepayment for middle or high school meals.  The bonus meal is per student account if the equivalent of one month's meals ($50 or $55) is prepaid in one transaction.
Due to bank processing times, please allow online payments 24-48 hours to post to your student's account.
