What is SchoolCafe and how does it work?

SchoolCafe (formerly ParentOnline) allows SJS families to "add money" to a student(s) lunch account. Students will then pay for lunch with a swipe card - no more pre-ordering!

  2. In Step 2 - Type in St. Joseph and our school name will pop up.
  3. Add money to your account – the minimum balance is $10.00 You can also set up an alert to receive an email when your account balance is low.
  4. Check here for the monthly lunch menu. Even better, print a copy to have handy!
  5. There will no longer be any pre-ordering for lunches.
  6. In the morning, students will be asked by their teacher what they would like for lunch.
  7. At lunch time, teachers will give students their swipe cards for lunch.
  8. Students purchase their lunch item and pay with their swipe card that holds the balance you have added to SchoolCafe.
  9. Teachers will collect the swipe cards and keep them at school.
