  • Food services Information

    Did you know that every Higley student receives a cafeteria account upon enrollment? HUSD has chosen MealTime Online to provide the opportunity for you to make credit card deposits into your student’s cafeteria account or view your student’s purchase history via the internet.

    Would you like to link your student's meal accounts so they all draw from one fund? Any money deposited to a linked account can be used by all of the accounts linked to it, which means you only have to maintain one balance instead of several. Click here to link your children's meal accounts.
