Lunch Balances

All lunch accounts must be in good standing.  When a lunch account has a negative balance, the student will no longer be able to purchase ala-carte items from our cafeteria.  The student will be able to purchase the menu item of the day, also known as our blue plate special. We ask that you make every effort to keep your family lunch account positive.  

How Students Purchase Lunch

Each student is assigned a unique account pin number. This unique 5-digit number is used in the cafeteria to make all purchases and is tied to your family account.  It is highly recommended that all students memorize this number and keep it confidential. There is a pin pad at the cash register where the student enters the five-digit account pin number for the cashier.   If he/she forgets the number, your student can give the cafeteria cashier their name and the cashier can look up the number.
