Efunds is BACK!
We are excited to share that as of this morning, eFunds is once again available for meal service
payments! Thank you for your patience while we worked through this issue. We were very persistent and are the first school district to get back online!

A few reminders as we move back to eFunds:

  1. Low Meal Balance Payments will need to be enabled again if this is something you have used in the past
  2. Account balances will be uploaded to eFunds once per day at 4:00 AM.*** If a deposit is made using eFunds during the day, it will not reflect in eFunds until the next day***. However, those funds will be immediately available to your students, and you will see the correct balance reflected in Family Portal.
  3. You can access eFunds here. eFunds Family Portal is also still available for meal service payments if that is your preferred method and can be accessed here: Family Portal

Life is busy. At Kenowa Hills, we partner with families to make life easier.


Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.


At the home of the Knights, athletic programs are a vital part of building character, drive, commitment, and teamwork for our student athletes.


The arts build pride and community at Kenowa Hills. From our Marching Knights to musical performances at our Performing Arts Center, we believe the student experience really is a work of art.
