Dover-Eyota Public Schools use a computerized prepaid meal accounting system. A payment into the student’s lunch account is necessary prior to or on the first day of school.
Prior to the first day of school, meal payments may be mailed or delivered to:
D-E District Office, Food & Nutrition Department
615 South Avenue SW, Eyota, MN 55934.
GUIDELINES REGARDING MEAL BALANCES
To purchase meals, a student’s meal account should have a positive balance. The Food Service Department will do their best to inform parents and students of a low account balance, but the final responsibility lies with the student and Parent/Guardian. You can check your student’s account balance on line at any time. Simply log on to www.paypams.com, and follow the on-screen instructions.
How will I know when to send money? If an elementary student account balance falls below $15.00, a low balance statement will be sent home with students. Students will also be given a verbal warning when their account balance falls below $10.00. Secondary students (Grades 6-12) are given a verbal notice when their account is $10.00 or less.
What if my student’s account balance falls below zero? If needed calls or emails to Parent or Guardian will be made. K-12 student accounts that are more than three (3) reimbursable meals in arrears will be offered an alternate lunch of a cheese sandwich, fruit, vegetable, and milk until the account is brought current. These meals/cold lunches will be given to the student/students prior to meal service. A student may purchase a standard, reimbursable meal with cash in hand.
No students will not be allowed to purchase ala carte items if the account does not have adequate funds to cover the purchase.
If your income has changed we do encourage you to fill out a free/reduced school meals application. These applications can be found at each school’s office or on-line at http://www.desch.org/page/3605.
MEAL ACCOUNT REFUND REQUEST
If you have a graduating senior with a balance it will be transferred it to a sibling account.

If your student is leaving the Dover-Eyota Public School District, please call the Food and Nutrition office to request a meal account refund.
