Adding Funds to Lunch Account


Dear HFA Families,

I hope you have had an excellent summer.  In effort to make payments for lunch and fees easier and more efficient, Henry Ford Academy is moving to a digital payment system.  The payment system will be through your Parent Connect (MiStar) account. These payments can be made with a PayPal account or debit/credit card.  The parent connect portal where grade reports and other student information can be found, will be the same location used to add money to student accounts.   

All lunch payments to the HFA Village cafeteria including alacarte items, must be paid for by using the student's digital lunch account beginning Monday 9/11/17. Funds must be put on the student’s lunch account by 10:30AM to be used for lunch on the same school day.

NOTE **9th Grade Parents: This system will only be used for Lunch in the Village cafeteria.  Lunch fees will be collected in cash at the Museum Office to be added to student accounts.  Payments can also be made by credit card through the Call Center (313) 982-6201.
