The following are some brief highlights of the system:
- This system allows for prepayment on your child's account and is something we strongly encourage. You have the option to prepay weeks in advance. You can even prepay months or a year in advance. Cash and checks are accepted at the school throughout the year. The money goes into your child's own debit account and is automatically deducted when he or she buys a meal or á la carte item. If a student has an account balance at the end of the school year, it is automatically transferred to the next school year. Checks should be made out to the school's cafeteria and should include the student PIN number, and first and last name of the student. Or, you can setup a MyPaymentsPlus account and make online deposits to your child's account. Any time during the school year that you want the money on your child's account, it can be refunded to you. To setup a MyPaymentsPlus online account, you will need your child’s student ID number, which is different from their PIN. You can find your student's ID number on the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You can also call your child’s school cafeteria manager to request his or her student ID number.
- Every student is issued a unique PIN number. This number is used at the point of service and identifies the student to the cashier.
- We are able to capture every transaction as it happens. By creating a MyPaymentsPlus account, you can access your child's Purchase History to view his or her account balance and see how much money was spent on meals and á la carte purchases.
This program is very beneficial for the students, parents and school staff.
