Dear Manteno Families,

Manteno CUSD No. 5 is pleased to announce that a new online payment system is now available.  The e~Funds for Schools electronic payment service is provided to the school by a third-party service provider. You are in full control of your account and can make a payment at any time that is convenient for you. No payments will be allowed without your knowledge and authorization through this secure payment system. By providing your email address, an email notification informing you of the student’s name, purpose of the payment, and the amount of the item, will be sent to you each time that a payment is to be processed. The e~Funds for Schools site is secure and uses industry standard data encryption.


How does e-Funds for Schools work?

  • Families set up and maintain their own logins, passwords, and payment preferences. Your account information is retained in a password-protected file.
  • Payments from a credit card or checking account may easily be set up.
  • Parents/guardians may establish a reoccurring payment or may opt to make a one-time payment.
  • Your payment history for the year is available with a click of the mouse


You will need the following information in order to create your e-Funds account:

  • Log into Skyward and Open Family Access
  • Click “Student Info” on the left menu
  • Locate the student’s “Other ID” number. This will be the number to associate you with your student.
  • If you have multiple students, it will be easier to enter the Family ID into e-Funds in order to associate all students at once. To find this number, click the “View [student’s] Family” on the Student Info tab. This opens more information and you can locate the “Family ID” on the right.
  • You now have information needed to create your e-Funds account. Navigate to the e-Funds school site to continue.
    Note: You can still go through Skyward Family Access and click "Make a Payment" in either Food Service or Fee Management, and you will be redirected to the e-Funds Parent Payment Portal.
