On November 17 we will be publishing changes to the K12PaymentCenter website. These changes will happen around 10:00 a.m. EST and should not take more than a few minutes. We do not expect much disruption to the service, and customers will see a maintenance screen if they log on during the update.

One of the most exciting new features is the option for parents to either create a new account, or log into an existing account, using their Facebook credentials. Details of this, and other changes are included in release notes, available here: K12PaymentCenter November 2015 Release Notes, or through this link if the hyper link does not function for you: http://www.mealsplus.com/Emails/Releases/K12PaymentCenterNov2015ReleaseNotes.pdf
