Welcome to our Cafeteria!

​My name is DeJon Ellison and I am the School Nutrition Administrator here at Mallard Creek STEM Academy.  I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school and share some information regarding our wonderful cafeteria program.

​Did you know that we offer breakfast at school every day from 7-8:30am? The cost for regular priced breakfast is $2.00 per day (.30 for reduced). Breakfast includes milk and juice or fruit and choice of breakfast entrée. Breakfast menus will be available on our school website every month.

This year we are using the Lunchtime software to house student’s meal accounts.  Here you will be able to pre-order meals for the week, add money to your student’s accounts, keep track of your child’s purchasing history.

​There will be a link available along with a set up guide on the school webpage to set up your students lunch accounts. Payments for your child’s lunch account can be made online with a debit/credit card at http://www.schoolpaymentportal.com
