Each cafeteria has a computerized point of sale system. All students are given a PIN number to enter in a keypad when purchasing meals and/or ala Carte items. The PIN number is the student’s school identification number without the beginning zero.

Students who receive free/reduced meals will also enter their PIN numbers. The point of sale system and use of the keypad for all students prevents other students from knowing the free/reduced status of their peers.
