Purchasing and payments

All schools use point-of-sale software to track cafeteria sales and deposits. The system works much like a debit card. Parents make a deposit (cash or check) at the school in any amount for their child’s meal purchases. When the student makes a purchase, he/she provides a five-digit pin number (cafeteria staff can look up a student’s pin number if necessary). The cost of each meal, as well as a la carte juice and milk, will be deducted from the account. Students who receive free or reduced-price meals also use the new system. Deposits are not required for students approved for free meals unless they purchase extra milk or juice.

Parents may monitor their child’s account balance and add funds to it through their Skyward Family Access account. Please check with the school office about setting up a Skyward Family Access account if you do not have one.

Any money left in the account at the end of the year will be transferred into the student’s account for the next school year.

What students need to know

For safety and space reasons, students are asked to sit with no more than eight students per table. Students will remain seated while in the commons or go outside. Food and drinks must be consumed inside the commons and may not be taken outside. Students must take care of their own trays, recycling and trash when they are finished eating, and may earn technology privileges at lunch for good behavior. Health department guidelines prohibit sharing food with others. Stay in designated in-bounds lunch areas during the play time.
