To make the dining hall as pleasant and efficient as possible, Nardin Academy has set up a secure online payment system. To purchase food, a student must have an account with Lunchtime.

To set up your account, click to visit the Lunchtime School Payment Portal.

School Lunch Policy

Each Nardin student is assigned a unique ID within Nardin's PowerSchool system that correlates them to their LunchTime account.  Both cash and payment portal funds are able to be used to make purchases. The "LunchTime" online account management system is used for purchases in the dining hall. Funds designated for the dining hall may be added to accounts in a variety of ways; online through the “LunchTime” site or at school with cash or checks payable to Nardin and deposited directly with team members in the dining hall or through the business office. 

The importance of feeding students to sustain them and help them through their day is a priority in the dining hall. Nardin's lunch policy towards students who do not have a lunch or lunch money or who have negative balances on their accounts offers students a choice of a meal from the scratch cooked hot lunch, salad, soup, or sandwich. No bonus items including bottled beverages, chips, or cookies will be allowed for purchase on accounts with negative balances. Those lunch charges are then reflected in accounts and repayment is required. Notification of exhausted or negative funds is made via regular email notifications and phone calls to home from the business and dining hall offices.  Additionally, individual low balance account notifications and automatic fund renewal limits may be set in the LunchTime portal. 

Thank you in advance for your continued support as Nardin's sustainable dining hall continues to grow.
