Dear Parents of Lynnfield Students,
The Lynnfield Public Schools Food Service Department uses the Meal Magic Corporation’s point-of-sale system in our school cafeterias. This is a pre-paid register system that provides convenience and accountability for our meal programs.
All students have an “account” into which parents can deposit money at any time. This account will be used for all of your child’s breakfast, lunch, milk or snack purchases. All students are assigned a four-digit code which they enter at the register when making a purchase. Codes for incoming kindergartners will be mailed home at the start of school in September. If a student forgets his/her code it can be looked up by the cashier. Meal Magic offers you control for monitoring your child’s spending and eating habits.
With our Meal Magic system, comes access to www.sendmoneytoschool.com. This website allows you to gain access to the activity of your child’s Nutrition Services account. You must register your child with their “Student ID” on the website. You will need to contact the Food Service Office for your child’s “Student ID”. There is no requirement to make deposits online and no fee to view account activity. If you decide to make a deposit online ($20 minimum) using a credit card, a flat fee of $2.00 will incur on all transactions. If you have more than one child you can designate an appropriate amount for each child. You may also deposit money into your child’s account by sending in cash or a check, made out to “Lynnfield Food Service.” There is no fee for deposits made at school with either check or cash. These deposits can be made at any school kitchen or by mailing it to our office at the Middle School, 505 Main St., Lynnfield.
POINT OF SALE SYSTEM BENEFITS
Prepaying for meals is A WIN/WIN FOR EVERYONE. Monies are drawn from the account ONLY when your child eats; and if your child moves to another Lynnfield school, the funds follow them. As a parent, you have the discretion to have us block items that you would not like your child to purchase. This does not mean that they cannot purchase a lunch.
All elementary students must prepay for their meals throughout the year. We will encourage parents to pay on a weekly or monthly basis by sending in cash or a check to their child’s school or by using www.sendmoneytoschool.com. There will be no cash exchange at all on a daily basis. Middle and high school students are encouraged to prepay to save time and improve service.
Online payments are a simple, safe and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.
Send Check or Cash
You can always bring money personally or send it with your student.
Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID #, their teacher's name, the $ amount and the check #. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashier(s) or school office.
If you choose to bring money to school personally or send it with your student, please put it in an envelope clearly marked with the student's first and last name, their ID #, their teacher's name, and the amount enclosed.
