Parents Can Add Money to Scholar Meal Accounts Using Online Feature
Did you know that you can use an online feature to place money on scholars’ meal accounts? It’s true! The process is easy and eliminates the need for scholars to carry cash to school when they want to purchase snacks.
You can use your Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit and/or debit card to put money on your scholar’s account. Although Food Service is unable to extend credit card service to registers, they still accept cash.

District Introduces Anonymous Alerts: An Anti-Bullying and Safety App
The Warrensville Heights City School District is pleased to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®.
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or to reveal their identity when submitting a report.
