It can take up to 12 hours for your child's money to show on the cashier's end. Best to place money on the account the night before it is needed.

A:
Once you set-up an online account, you can control when you receive a low balance e-mail.  We recommend in the settings you set a low balance reminder at $5.00 or more.  This will help ensure your child will not spend their meal account before you have time to add more money.
