otre Dame Academy converted to a new Point of Sale (POS) system for our hot lunch program on January 4, 2017. We will no longer issue lunch cards as we have for the startup of the lunch program. Any unused meals
be redeemable in the 2nd semester. The new POS system will increase the level of service, improve lunch line efficiency, and allow students to purchase items a la carte.
For Pre-K through 2nd grade: the meal will remain the same as last semester. The primary entrée (Main Plate) for the day is served with a starch, a vegetable, a portion of fruit, and a choice of milk or water. These meals are delivered to your child’s classroom. Each meal is $4.75.
For 3rd through 5th grade: your child can choose between the primary entrée of the day (Main Plate) or select a grill item of the day (J. Clark’s Grille) to accompany the starch, two vegetables, a portion of fruit, and a beverage. If both entrées are selected, they will be charged for two entrées. Each meal option is $4.75. Á la carte items will not be available during this lunch period.
For 6th through 10th grade: your child can choose between the primary entrée of the day (Main Plate) or select a grill item of the day (J. Clark’s Grille) to accompany the starch, two vegetables, a portion of fruit, and a beverage. Alternatively, these students can select a sandwich – either “build your own” or “grab and go” (Market St. Deli) – and get a side salad, chips, a portion of fruit, and a beverage. If multiple entrées are selected, students will be charged for each entrée. Each meal option is $5.25. Middle School and Upper School can also opt to purchase additional side items á la carte. These prices are clearly marked on each item. Á la carte items cannot be substitutes for the items intended to complete a meal, as listed above.
Parents must activate a student’s prepaid meal account at the following website:
Each family‘s “My School Bucks” account will include a separate subaccount for each of their students. Accounts may be loaded using a bank account draft or a credit card and may be loaded with up to $150 per student. A $2 fee will be assessed each time a family loads money into the system. Please follow the link to learn more about the system’s features, how to access the details of your students’ meal purchases and email alerts for low balance account balances.
Any balance in your student’s meal account at the end of the school year will be carried over to the next school year.
Students will use their 4-digit Student Lunch ID # as their PIN when purchasing meals. Please remind your children to keep their ID confidential. During the first few days with the new POS system, the lunch line may be slower, but as the students familiarize themselves with the system, the lines will move more quickly than before. If you did not receive a letter from the school and you need access to your child’s Student Lunch ID #, please email Janice Bamford.
