New Meal Ordering Process

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The SANY mission is to provide support, challenges and opportunities for its students through education. It also remains critical that our students continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. In an effort to bridge the access to nutritious food SANY has utilized MyPaymentsPlus.com as a way for families to “order” meals.

If your student is new to SANY or you have not set up a MyPaymentsPlus.com account you will need your student(s) school ID. Should you need your student’s ID please contact the main office of the school your student attends. Reference enclosed instructions for more assistance with account set up.

Once you log into MyPaymentsPlus.com you will be on the parent home page, select the Events & Activities. You will see a list of available activities for your student, look for Remote Learning Meals (this is for students that are remote learning only), Mon/Tues Students (this is for students attending in person classes on Mondays and Tuesdays) or Thurs/Friday Students (this is for students attending in person classes on Thursday and Fridays). Look for “How To Pre-Order Meals” video on all SANY social media platforms.

Please note that Remote Learning Meals will be used until your student starts to attend in-person classes.

Should you need meals starting September 8th, the order must be in by NOON September 4th.

After September 4th, the cut-off for ordering will be every Wednesday by midnight, the week prior to when the meals will be needed.

Please watch the provided video below on how to register and/or how to order meals.

Please see link below for the my payments plus website: 

In order to ensure that families have enough storage space pick up will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday will provide breakfast and lunch for Wednesday and Thursday; Thursday will provide breakfast and lunch for Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

We are in this together and together we will get through this interesting time.

We wish you a healthy and safe school year.
