    Access the attached Quick Card Guide for step by step instructions for using the school cafe website.
    Important Things to Know:
    You will need your child's student ID number to create the account.  Please ask your child for the number, as many do know their student number.  If you do need us to provide the number for you, please feel free to contact us at 814-355-4814. 
    If you have more than one child in the district, you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.
    In order to use school cafe website online prepayment service, a convenience fee of 5% will be assessed per deposit transaction.  Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the fee once per deposit transaction.  Example $20.00 deposit-convenience fee $1.00- $20.00 will be applied to student's meal account.  The Bellefonte Area School District does not profit from the use of this site.
    It is not necessary to make online payments to take advantage of the features of the school cafe website.  There is no fee for requesting automatic email notifications or to view your child's account transactions.
    Please allow 24 hrs for payments to be applied to your child's account
