Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines move faster giving students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.
Pre-paid Point of Sale (POS) Account Info
The Food Service Department has a computerized POS system that allows students to participate in a prepaid debit system for all lunches and snacks. This system is NOT a charge account; students MUST have money in their account or pay with cash.
Prepayments (cash or paper check) may be mailed directly to school or sent with your child and given to the cashier at lunch time. Checks should be made payable to Webster Food Service. If you have more than 1 child at a school, please include a note that explains how much money goes into each account. If siblings attend different schools, a separate check must be written for each student. Prepayments may also be made on-line by clicking this link and setting up an account for your household.
Cashiers accept cash at the registers, but students are encouraged to use the pre-paid system to avoid lost money and expedite lunch lines. Even if your child only buys milk or snacks a few times a week it is much easier to add as little as $5 into their account instead of handling money on a daily basis.
*Elementary students give their last name to the cashier as they go through the lunch line. *Secondary students input their personal 4 or 5 digit ID-PIN number at the key pad located at each cash register. *If your child only buys milk or snacks a couple times per week it would be much easier to put as little as $5.00 into their account and not use cash. *If your student qualifies for free or reduced price lunches, this information is securely contained within the system and the meal will be processed just as it is for all other students. We recommend that reduced price students use the prepaid system by sending in at least $5.00 to put on their account. *If your student has a food allergy, the school nurse will notify us with that information and a warning will appear on the cashier's screen for a review of the items on the student's meal tray. *Money left over in your child's account at the end of the school year will roll forward to the new year. If your student is graduating any positive or negative balances on the account is transferred to siblings if possible.
PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to restrict or limit purchases on your child's account for lunch or snacks please open the Cafeteria Snack Purchase Restriction Form below and send completed form to your child's school. Thank you!
