Touchless Access to Meal Account 

All students have been assigned a personal identification number (PIN) and will receive an ID card which will be scanned for all purchases in the cafeteria. All students will receive an ID card with a barcoded PIN number at the start of the school year.  As students proceed to the cashier, they will scan the ID card to access funds in their prepaid account.

All students or parents may prepay for meals by depositing cash or check into the meal account at breakfast or lunch service.  Parents also may prepay online via SchoolCafe.com.

This system provides complete confidentiality to all students as all students have an ID Card and 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.  Please contact the Food Service Office to make payment arrangements.

Schools may only prohibit charging when a written directive is received from a parent or guardian.

Parent Request for No Charge Form

A la carte, second meals and snack items may not be charged at any time.

Carry Over Balances

All positive balances at the end of the school year will carry over to the next school year, following the student to their new grade and homeroom assignment.

Negative balances must be cleared up before the end of the school year.  Notices will continue until the debt has been paid. Please contact the Food Service Office to make payment arrangements.

Positive Balance Notifications will be sent to all graduating seniors requesting one of three options: refund, transfer the balance to a sibling or donate the balance for the benefit of another student.
