Skyward Online Payment Options

Release Date: September 1st, 2011

Hamilton SE Schools has made the transition to Skyward's Food Service Module. This change will allow parents to view current and up to date Food Service information for their students. Parents may now log into Family Access and view their student's current food service balance, daily café purchases, and payment history by clicking on the Food Service link within Family Access.

You can now sign up to receive Food Service low balance email notification when the balance falls below ten ($10) dollars. To signup, select E-mail Notifications at the left of your screen, then select to have an e-mail notification sent to you once your child/children’s lunch account balance falls below $10. Please verify your e-mail address is correct in our system. Also, please don’t rely solely on e-mail notifications because Individual circumstances (system settings, SPAM blockers, etc.) may prevent or delay the lunch account low balance alerts. Please check your Food Service lunch account balance regularly. If you have any questions, please contact the Food Service Department at (317) 594-4808.


You can access the eFunds website by either logging on to Family access and clicking on the eFunds link under “District Links”. You can also access it from here by going to

To make a payment, you will need to set up your username, password and add students to your account. This requires your student’s ID number and your checking account or credit card information. Once your account is set up, you can deposit funds into your child’s lunch account or pay textbook rental fees.

If you need assistance setting up your account, please contact eFunds customer service.

Transaction Fees

Payments made from a checking account - $1. Payments using a credit card - $1.95

A transaction fee is only charged once per “check-out” even if it includes payments for several students. For example, making a deposit for three students at one time with a credit card will result in only one $1.95 transaction fee.

Account Postings

Lunch payments made before 9:30 a.m. will be posted in Skyward the same business day.

Lunch payments made after 9:30 a.m. will be posted in Skyward the following business day.

Textbook rental payments will be posted in Skyward within a few business days.

This online payment system is intended to be convenient for parents. However, you may still send cash or a check to school for your child’s lunch account or to pay textbook rental fees.
