Starting in the Fall 2012, Parents can pay for school lunch online
Friday, June 29, 2012
Westbury School District is now partnering with MyLunchMoney, a service of School-Link Technologies, Inc., which, starting in the Fall of 2012, will allow parents to conveniently prepay for their students' school meals online using their credit or debit card. Parents never have to worry again about lost or stolen lunch money; MyLunchMoney gives them peace of mind by eliminating the need to send cash or checks with their student to school.
MyLunchMoney also gives parents the ability to set up a free account to monitor student meal purchases, receive email notifications for low account balances, set spending limits, and place limitations on food items.
The District will also benefit from using MyLunchMoney. Fewer cash payments handled at the point of sale speeds up lunch lines so that more students may be served during short lunch periods.
Information exchanged on MyLunchMoney is protected by the highest levels of internet security, and all content is 100% compliant with COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act) rules and regulations.
Introduced in 2001, MyLunchMoney is now used in more than 6,500 schools by nearly 1,000,000 parents across the nation.
