Debit Payment System
Shelby County Schools has a debit payment system in our cafeteria. All students, whether free, reduced or full pay status, have an account. We have received many positive responses from parents and staff. The following are some brief highlights of the system.
· Every student is issued a unique PIN number. This number is used at the point of service and identifies the student to the cashier.
· This system allows for prepayment on your child’s account and is something we strongly encourage. You have the option to prepay weeks in advance. You can even prepay a month or a year in advance. The money goes into your child’s own debit account and is automatically deducted when he or she buys a meal or ala carte item. If a student has an account balance at the end of the school year, it is automatically transferred to the next school year. Checks should be made out to the school’s cafeteria and should include the student PIN number, and first and last name of the student. Or, you can setup a ParentOnline account and make deposits to your child’s account online. Click here to setup a ParentOnline account. Any time during the school year that you want the money on your child’s account, it can refunded.
· We are able to capture every transaction as it happens. By creating a ParentOnline account, you can access your child’s Transaction History to view his or her account balance and see how much money was spent on meals and ala carte purchases.
This program has been very beneficial for the students, parents and school staff.
