The best method to inquire your child’s credit balance is to email Coach Altman at If you prefer to inquire by phone, your inquiry will be answered after 3:00 p.m. The Florida Constitution Article VII prohibits the School District of Lee County to extend credit to any individual. Please make it a habit to pay before you use the program. Payments can be made in the main office or by phone during school hours.
