Fueling learning and growth

The dining program at Maumee Valley Country Day School is an integral component of the school’s commitment to providing a nurturing and supportive environment for students. With a focus on nutrition, variety, and convenience, the program offers breakfast and lunch options on days when school is open, ensuring that students have access to wholesome meals to fuel their day of learning and growth.

Faculty, staff, and students can look forward to a selection of hot entrees at both breakfast and lunch. There are also dozens of individual items available for purchase, from drinks and fruit to snacks and meal-replacement bars.

The program is managed by Lynn’s Lunchbox LLC and accounts are managed through the SchoolCafe app.

Setting up you SchoolCafe account

  1. Download the Apple iOS or GooglePlay app OR use
  2. Create an account/login. If you use your Gmail or Apple Mail account to log in you can avoid the security question steps
  3. Families add funds to accounts by:
    • Using the app or the SchoolCafé website (with a $2.25 convenience fee per $100). Configure a low balance notification during the process and then tie your credit card to the account if you wish to fund the account electronically.
    • Drop off cash or a check made out to Lynn’s Lunchbox LLC at the register
    • Deliver a check made out to Lynn’s Lunchbox LLC or the business office to either Renee Buchanan or Jim Kirtland
    • Anyone you designate can set up an account to add funds for your child. Spouse, Grandparents or the student themselves.

Options for managing your child’s account

There are no “family accounts” in SchoolCafé, but you can use one of your children’s accounts and share their PIN with your other children if you like. The low-balance alert still works but you do not get the per-child purchase tracking. It will only show as the single user making all the purchases.

If you use the app or website, you can also transfer funds between children’s accounts. But you must first electronically add funds to each child’s account at least one time to transfer funds between accounts. This activity verifies the accounts to enable this feature. After that step, you can easily distribute funds in the app.

Restricting your child’s purchases

Contact Tabitha Fields to add cashier notifications to your child’s account to restrict purchases of specific items, restrict to cash only purchases, or to note dietary restrictions. A red flag will appear for the cashier when your child inputs their PIN for the cashier to read and enforce.
