All buildings are now operating with the computerized point of sale system. This makes serving your child much easier and faster. Upon enrollment, all students are assigned a student identification number which is also their cafeteria account number. Every student has an account, whether it is used or not. This is a debit account. Parents/guardians can send in payments by cash or check (payable to PCS Lunch fund) to their school’s cafeteria. Please be sure to include the student's name and account number. Payments can also be made online. See the instructions labeled "Student Account Information" above. Deposits can not be taken over the phone. Purchases are automatically deducted from the account.
