As you are aware, Food Services is using a computerized Point of Sale (POS) System in all building cafeterias. I hope you find the following information useful in understanding how it works:
Comments on Accounts – The POS System has the capability of putting a comment on your child’s account. If your child has a food allergy or diet restriction, please send a doctor’s note to the school nurse. The school nurse will inform the cafeteria staff and a note will be placed on your child’s account. If you would like to place a restriction on a la carte purchases to a particular day of the week, please see the Lunch Account Restriction Form posted on the Food Services website.
The Carmel Central School District offers MySchoolBucks, an online payment service providing a quick and easy way to add money to your student’s meal account using a credit/debit card. You can view recent purchases, check balances, and set-up low balance alerts for FREE! To register for a free account, go to www.MySchoolBucks.com. If you are sending your child to school with cash or a check, please make sure to have the cash or check (in any amount) in an envelope marked “Cafeteria”. Please include on the outside of the envelope your child’s name and PIN #.
Other important information to remember:
- Students cannot use the account of another student (i.e. siblings, friends, etc.)
- Cash is still accepted on the lunch lines.
- Separate checks are required for siblings in different buildings. Checks can be made payable to CCSD Cafeteria Account.
