Student Lunch PINs / SchoolCafe Accounts

Dear Lumberton Parents and Guardians,

Student and Staff Lunch PINS/Setting up SchoolCafe Account

Lunch PINS are the last 5 digits of student/staff school ID (found in Genesis).

For households with students in more than one district:  At this time, you will not be able to add students in different DISTRICTS to the same account.  If you already have a SchoolCafe account with a student in another district (such as RV) you will have to set up a second SchoolCafe account using a different email address. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.  You CAN use the same account for siblings in different schools within Lumberton Township School District (Walther, Ashbrook, Bobby’s Run, Middle).

Payment Maximum Limit:  There is a maximum limit of $100 per transaction.  If you have multiple students within the district, you must stay below the $100 when totaling up each child’s payment OR make separate transactions.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact me directly.

Thanks,

INCLEMENT WEATHER / EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

INCLEMENT WEATHER/EMERGENCY CLOSINGS: We are now into the winter season, and it is important for everyone to be prepared for emergency closings. These are most often caused by weather, but can also occur when a boiler breaks or similar mechanical failure happens. Please have a plan in place for your children should the need for an emergency/early closing occur.

In the event of the need for an emergency closing, the district utilizes an automated phone calling system, Blackboard Connect. For delayed openings and before-school closings, Blackboard Connect will call ONLY the HOME NUMBER listed in our database to confirm that school is closed or delayed.

Always verify closings through the Lumberton School District Website: www.lumberton.k12.nj.us or RVTV Comcast Channel 19/FiOS Channel 40. Emergency closings are also broadcast on standard news outlets between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. Lumberton’s Emergency Closing Number is 702. In the event of an emergency early closure, Blackboard Connect will dial THREE numbers in the following order as applicable: home, mom’s cell, dad’s cell.
