Online Deposits for Food Service Account
Parents who would like to make online deposits into their child's food service account can do so through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

First, sign in to the Parent Portal and navigate to Payments through the menu on the left side of the page. Once inside Payments, determine the amount of money to be added to the account, and enter that into the Payment field. The system will automatically populate the total cost, taking into account a $3.25 convenience charge. Then, click next to proceed to the payment method. Add a payment method and proceed through the remaining steps to process the payment and add funds to the account.

Payments by Check for Food Service Account
Payments for your child's food service account can also be made via check. Checks must be made payable to "South Texas ISD." Checks that are written out to the individual campuses cannot be accepted.
