Please note...

Dear Elementary and Middle School Parents and Guardians,
Due to the increased costs of printing and going “GREEN” Chartwells has decided to no longer print monthly breakfast and lunch menus for every student. The menus can be found on the Pembroke Pines Charter Schools web-site pinescharter.net
There will be some menus delivered to the school each month for those who may not have internet access.

The Chartwells Promise

Making sure Students enjoy what they eat can do wonders for growing minds. It has always been the Chartwells Promise and commitment to provide customized solutions to support academic achievement at the highest levels. We practice a single-minded commitment to building strong bodies, sharp minds, and establishing the foundation for a long, healthy life. We call this Eat. Learn. Live.

Our Philosophy


In order to better serve our parents, the Pembroke Pines Charter Schools offers MyPaymentsPlus which allows parents to conveniently manage their child's school meal account. Please visit www.mypaymentsplus.com to make deposits and/or monitor your student's meal account.

MyPaymentsPlus is a state-of-the-art online service that provides you the convenience and information you need to manage your student’s meal account. This system speeds up serving lines in the cafeteria, eliminates the need to send checks to school or worry about lost or forgotten lunch money, and ensures that your child will receive a nutritious meal.

At no cost, MyPaymentsPlus allows any family to:
■ Create a free, secured account to manage all of your student's accounts
■ Check your student’s current account balance
■ Monitor the items your student has been purchasing in the cafeteria
■ Create settings to receive email notifications when the account reaches a low balance

For a small program fee of 4.75%, MyPaymentsPlus allows any family to:
■ Make a prepayment into your student’s meal account using a check, credit card, or debit card at www.mypaymentsplus.com or by calling 1-877-237-0946. Funds deposited through MyPaymentsPlus are usually available for student use within a matter of minutes. This feature eliminates the need to send a check to school or worry about lost or forgotten lunch money.
■ Create settings to automatically replenish your student’s account when it reaches a low balance

If you prefer to make payments or check balances via phone, a tollfree number has been created for our school (1-877-237-0946).

To create a new account, visit www.mypaymentsplus.com. Follow the onscreen directions and register your student using their Student ID number. Your student ID number can be obtained by contacting support at: 1-877-237-0946. We encourage you to visit www.mypaymentsplus.com or call 1-877-237-0946 today.
