    Cafeteria Information 

    Each child has a lunch account in the cafeteria.  You can add money to the account online or can send a check to school for it.  Your child has an ID#,  located on the bus pass.  Your child will use the ID # to access the lunch account.  I will provide a lunch ID card at school that can be brought into the lunchroom to remind them of the number.  Please practice the ID number with your child until he/she has it memorized.
