Re: Computerized payment system for the Cafeteria
The Port Jefferson UFSD has a computerized Point of Sale payment system for all school meals purchased in the district's cafeterias. The purpose of this letter is to introduce this system to all parents and to make them familiar with the services that are provided.
Every student has their own personal lunchroom account based on the last four digits of their student ID number. Please have your child memorize their number. They should not share their number with anyone. Please do not be concerned if your child forgets their number as it can be accessed through every register. Students can access their accounts on the PIN pads located at every register. It is however, strongly recommended that all students remember their numbers, as this will make the lunch lines move faster.
If you would like to deposit money via check into your child's account, complete the attached form and return it with the proper remittance. You may also make payment with a major credit card or debit card at http://www.portjeff.k12.ny.us/ by clicking on food services in the left hand side of the site. Please follow the attached instructions for this method of payment. At this site you can view your child's meal/snack history for the last thirty days.
If your student has qualified for free or reduced price lunch, this information is securely contained within the system and the meal will be processed just as it is for all other students. There is no need to be concerned for a potentially uncomfortable situation for the student.
If you are concerned about a food allergy that your student has, please notify the cafeteria with this information. A warning will appear on the cashier's screen for a quick review of the items on the student's meal tray.
If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office of Cafeteria Services at 631-476-4400 ext. 243.
