Lunchtime at WMS
Meet Jie! She runs the cafeteria at our Whitman Middle School, and she wants to make sure your students gets a good meal. Lunches are not free this year, but if you need free or reduced-price meals, you can read more and apply for that on a paper or online form on the district Apply for Free & Reduced Meals.
You can add money to your student’s account by creating a login/password and linking to SPS/Whitman/Your student on PayPams.
Your student has a PIN assigned that is linked to their account. Volunteers have been helping students who are not sure of the PIN. They use this when they checkout at lunch. If you would like to know your student PIN, contact us and we can provide the number to you/your student: firstname.lastname@example.org
Middle Schools Meal Costs: Breakfast $2.50 & Lunch $3.50
Menus and food selections are available to view on the district Menus and About our Food page.
