Students in pre-k have their milk during their in-class snack period. A milk order form will be sent home once a month (usually the second Wednesday) for pre-k students to order milk for the month ahead. Parents are to complete the form, indicate their child's milk choice (fat free, low fat, chocolate low fat or strawberry low fat), and return the form with payment to school by the date indicated on the form. The order form and payment should be placed in a sealed enveloped, labeled "Milk Money," and include the student's name, grade, and the name of the student's classroom teacher. The 2016/2017 price of pre-k milk is 35 cents/day. Payment by check is preferred (payable to Scotch Plains-Fanwood Board of Education), but cash (in the exact amount) is acceptable. There is a fee for returned checks. Milk orders received after the date indicated on the order form will not be accepted. Because milk orders are placed in advance, no refunds can be made for absent children who have ordered milk. Should an absence occur on the collection date, please make every effort to bring the order to the main office. If this is impossible, please call the office to see if an alternate arrangement can be made. Otherwise, the child will need to bring his/her beverage for snack time to school for the following month. Milk is not served on single-session days. Students eligible for the free milk program must complete and return the milk order form on a monthly basis.
Students in Grades K through 4 will choose their milk during their lunch period each day. Parents are encouraged to discuss the various milk choices (as indicated above) with their child. For the 2016/2017 school year, the price of milk is 70 cents a carton for students in Grades K through 4. Payment options include the following:

Payforit allows parents to receive automated emails detailing their child's account balance, review which items have been purchased, and receive alerts if there is a low balance, regardless of their payment method. This is an option for "auto-replenishment" which allows parents to set up a low-balance threshold and automatically replenish their child's cafeteria account. Payments made through this site take approximately three hours to be credited to the student's account.
