Unique Personal Identification Number (PIN)
All students have been assigned a unique personal identification number (PIN) to be used for each purchase in the cafeteria. All students will receive a small disposable card notifying them of their PIN number at the start of the school year. It is strongly recommended that students memorize his/her PIN. As students proceed to the cashier, they will enter their PIN into a keypad and either pay with cash or use funds in their prepaid account.
Accounts may be prepaid with cash or checks made payable to AGSD Food Service. Payments or deposits may be made to the cashier in the cafeteria. Online Payments may also be made using SchoolCafe.com.
This system provides complete confidentiality to all students as all students have a PIN number and use it in the same way.
School Meal Account and Charges
All students who request a school meal may receive a school meal regardless of cash on hand or account balance. Students are permitted to charge one (1) complete student breakfast meal and one (1) complete student lunch meal daily.
Negative balance reminder letters will be sent to parents on a regular basis. All debts must be paid before the end of the school year.
