FOR ALL FAMILIES:

The Solon Schools this year is using a new menu and nutrition information platform called My School Menus. This new platform provides a more full-service one-stop location for school lunch menus, linking to the EZpay site to add money to lunch accounts, information about applying for free and reduced lunch status.

My School Menus also allows families to “Build-a-Meal” to conduct calorie, carbohydrate and other nutrient tallies. Once the school year begins, families will be able to search menus by school. To view My School Menus, go to:  https://www.myschoolmenus.com/instance/758/district/759

To help get started in learning how to navigate the new menus, families can use the My School Menus tutorial video at:  (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YFK_zFs5czkmxqFImk5F2VHJjR9Uu6tZ/view?usp=sharing).
