Lunch Program

In order to make the school lunch as efficient as possible, using traditional cash will really slow things down and it is highly discouraged.  Instead, we recommend and strongly encourage that you set up an account and load money for students to use when buying items at lunch.  Students will simply scan their ID card and go. It’s simple. Rivers Edge Cafe uses a company called, PaySchools, to process payments.  


Before your child's first day buying lunch, we recommend that you follow the instructions below, set up your account, add your child(ren), and load money onto their account.  


  1. Either download the PaySchools mobile app or create your account online at:

  2. Click Register (IMPORTANT: if you attended St. Rose in 2019, you may already have an account with Payschools.  If so, when registering this time around, please either use an email address different from the one used previously or use the same email account BUT register by adding  "+1" to the user name. Example:  would be used as  when registering your new PaySchools account).

  3. Complete the registration form 

  4. Check your email for a confirmation email

  5. Login to your account from the email

  6. Add a child

  7. Choose New Jersey, choose "St. Rose School", enter your child’s Student ID #, their First and Last Name (these are found in the email we sent)

  8. Add money to each child

  9. Continue

  10. Add payment method

  11. Turn on/off Auto Replenishment

  12. Done!
