District parents can prepay for their students’ meals online using their charge cards, electronic checks or debit cards.The system is called PayPAMS, which stands for Parent Account Management System. This free service allows parents to set up an account for automatic payments when their child’s balance is low, access meal account balances or the account history online, and receive automatic e-mail notification of balance status and confirmation of payments made.Parents can even register multiple students under one account. To begin the registration process, visit www.payPAMS.com or call 1-877-726-7586.Parents will be asked to provide their child's lunch account PIN number, which is assigned when students register for school meals. If a parent needs help with their child's PIN number, they may call District 622 Nutrition Services at 651-748-7530.The phone will take the caller through a variety of prompts. Callers will be asked to provide a district identification number, which is 6678 (NORT). The automatic system will then guide parents through the registration process.The PayPAMS web site will ask parents to choose from two payment options, allowing them to make manual payments at their convenience or set up automatic payments based on their student's account falling below an amount that parents determine.Parents will receive instant confirmation that their payments have been received. It takes two to three business days to post the information to student accounts at school.Student lunch accounts can be accessed at any time at www.PayPAMS.com.__________________________________Remaining BalancesBalances remaining in a Student's account will carry over to next school year. If they move to a new building, the balance will transfer. We encourage parents to check their student's balance before school starts to ensure that the student has money in his or her account to start the year.
