Purcell Marian High School partners with W.G. Grinders, a Dayton-based deli caterer, as our food service provider. Lunch menus provide freshly-made options for our students, including hot sandwiches, salads, and wraps.

To pay for lunch, W.G. Grinders offers the ability to pay by credit card or cash at the lunch-line register, or they provide the ability of parents to set up a school lunch account for their students. W.G. Grinders uses MySchoolAccount.com to manage lunch accounts. Creating a school lunch account allows you to make deposits directly into your student’s account online. Here you can track what your student has been eating for the past 30 days, transfer funds between students, and have an email reminder sent to you when the account balance gets low. Guardians can make deposits and payments through ACH (checking/savings) or Credit/Debit Card.

To set up a school lunch account for your student, you must create a parent account. This requires you to:

  1. Go to www.myschoolaccount.com.
  2. Click “Create Account” on the top menu bar.
  3. Fill in the required information on the “Create Parent Account” signup page.
  4. Create a User ID and Password
  5. Choose W.G. Grinders from the “School District” drop-down menu.
  6. Click the “Accept” box, and then click “Signup.” MySchoolAccount will send an email to your email address that will contain a “verification code.”

After receiving the “verification code,” you may begin to add your children’s information. To do this, you will need to:

  1. Go to www.myschoolaccount.com and log in using your previously created I.D. and password.
  2. Enter the “verification code” to verify your account and email address.
  3. Begin adding your children’s information according to the guidelines provided. You will need each of your children’s student I.D. numbers to add each student.
    (this is the same as their school id). Add the prefix “PM” to the beginning of the I.D. number. Ex. PM12345.
  4. After the students are added, you will be able to make payments to the student account(s) and view transaction history.

Please use this link to set up and load your student account today.


Students will use their I.D. # (which can be found in Renweb, in the Student Information section, under date of birth) at the register to use this pre-loaded account. Any balance left at the end of the school year can be rolled over to the following year.
