Students who wish to attend a school other than their resident school may submit an Open Enrollment Application online during the early enrollment period, November 15th through the first Friday in February, for the upcoming school year. A student may also request a late enrollment transfer by submitting the same online application at any other time of year.
Under the McKinney-Vento Act, homeless students are entitled to immediate enrollment and full participation in school even if they are unable to produce records normally required for enrollment.

Salt Lake City School District encourages parents to pay for school meal online using MyPaymentsPlus. 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 you to check your student’s account balance online, view what your student has been eating in the cafeteria, and automatically receive email notifications when the account reaches a low balance. You can pay online into your student’s meal account using a check, credit card, or debit card. You can also use the Autopay feature to automatically replenish your student’s account when it reaches a low balance.
To sign up, visit MyPaymentsPlus by clicking on the blue button above and then click on “Register a Free Account.” You will need your student’s ID number to complete registration. If you don’t know your child’s student ID, please contact your school to obtain this information.
To aid in managing your student’s account on-the-go, MyPaymentsPlus also has a free mobile app available for iPhone, iPad and Android phones. For questions pertaining to managing your account or navigating through the MyPaymentsPlus website, please email SLC@Horizonsoftware.com.
PAY FOR SCHOOL MEALS AT THE SCHOOL
Online payments are not the only option. Payments can be made at your school. For elementary and middle schools, cash or check payments will be accepted at the school office. At high schools, cash or check payments will be accepted by the kitchen manager or at the point of sale.
PLEASE BE AWARE - Many of the grants and waivers available during the pandemic are no longer available, and school meals are no longer free to all children. Households who need assistance purchasing school meals must apply for Free and Reduced Meal Benefits or qualify by direct certification.
Free and Reduced Price Meals
Every household must reapply each school year or be direct certified for their student to receive free and reduced price meal benefits. Parents are encouraged to annually submit one application (after July 1) for their entire household before their children attend school. Be sure to apply early to allow time for the approval process. Students who do not qualify for free or reduced price meals at time of service will be charged for their meal.
Note: Salt Lake City School District waives the added charge to our reduced price students - providing their school meal free of charge.
Households who qualify for and use the following assistance programs are direct certified for free and reduced meals.
Horizon's Solana Free & Reduced Online Application makes it easy and convenient to apply for meal benefits for your child at the click of a button. The online application asks for your student’s birth date and/or student identification number. If this information is not available, please contact the Salt Lake City School District for a paper application.
Students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City School District school, who live outside the district or school boundaries, may apply for an out-of-resident transfer. The Open Enrollment application can be found on our website.
