EZ Meal App - Free and Reduced Lunch Application

    (COMING SOON)

 

We are asking that all parents fill out an online lunch application that can be found at https://www.franklinisd.net/ click on Parents tab, click EZ School App (English or Spanish).  Franklin ISD encourages all households to fill out an application and you only have to fill out one application for your entire household. We ask that all parents/guardians fill out this application. If you do not qualify there is a check box that you click and you do not have to enter your income information, but this allows us to verify that every child has completed this application.



EZ School Pay - Lunch Account
 

We also ask that you verify that you can log into your EZ School Pay  account or create one if you don’t have one. You can access the login page from https://www.franklinisd.net/, click on Parents tab, EZ School Pay

  • If you have an existing account make sure you can log in and have all your students added. You can use their Student ID number to add students. You can find your child’s 4 digit student ID number by calling your campus office, requesting it online, or look at the letter we mailed home earlier this summer.
  • If you do not have an account click on the Sign Up Today link and add your students using their 4 digit student ID number.
  • If you have a newly enrolled student, it will take up to 2-3 days before you can add your new student to your EZ School Pay account.
  • Even if you choose not to pay online for your child’s school lunches it gives you the ability to check their balance and see their transactions. We hope that everyone takes advantage of this service. There is also an app for iOS or Android you can download on your phone.
 

At any time, you can get your portal ID or student ID numbers from your campus secretary as well. Also, if you need help with this process we are here to help. You can reach us by calling your campus office or email. If you do not have computer access you can come to school and we can provide a computer to get this process done.
