As of January 25th, Bloomfield Hills Schools will use Community Pass only for all lunch program payments. When logging into My Bloomfield and signing in to view a specific student, lunch balances and a transaction history will still be available. However, payments will only be accepted through Community Pass.
We understand that a lot of parents have appreciated the ability to make payments online, view transactions, and see account balances. All of this will still be possible - the only change is that payments will no longer be accepted in the same location as you find balance information. This is due to a rising cost environment in credit card processing fees that the district has historically not asked families to incur, but has rather paid on families' behalf. The switch to 100% payment processing through Community Pass will allow us to retain the functionality of online payments, yet save money from the district's general fund.
This transition should be fairly seamless, but we recognize you may have some questions. Please allow five minutes after processing a payment to contact us with any questions so we can digitally see the transaction on our end and better support your request. In addition, please note that you may process payments for multiple items in the same shopping cart within Community Pass. So, if you'd like to purchase lunch credits at West Hills along with Saturday swim lessons, please feel free to complete one checkout process for the entire family.
If you haven't already, please make sure you have your login information for Community Pass.

Instructions will be sent directly to the email that is listed as the primary email for your student's account.
