Food Service News!
We use the Meal Magic point-of-sale system in our school cafeterias. Meal Magic is a pre-paid system that provides convenience and accountability to our meal programs. Your student will be given an “account” into which you may deposit money at any time (there will be a charge to use this option). This account will allow your child to pay for meals or snacks just by using his/her account. You will be able see balances and what exactly your student is charging to the account.
