Here is the scoop from Helen Williams regarding the cash payments in the HPMS cafeteria.
I talked with our food services coordinator, and here are some of the details:1. By having the students enter their ID numbers, parents are able to see what their children are buying in the cafeteria. Parents of K-4 students are already able to do this in Dinerite.2. Parents will be able to confirm that their students are spending their lunch money in the cafeteria.3. The information also helps the cafeteria manager track inventory and determine what is selling and what is not.4. The information acts as an accounting resource to track how students are paying and to track cash in a systematic way.Reports are that the lines are getting shorter, and we thank parents & students for their patience as we introduce this new system.
