Computerized Lunch Program and Point of Sale
Dear Eastchester Families,
The Eastchester School District maintains a computerized point of sale (POS) system in all school cafeterias. This provides a convenient and secure way to set up a pre-paid lunch account for your children. You do not have to pre-pay in order to buy lunch in the cafeteria. Checks will still be accepted daily. No cash will be accepted at this time.
There are several ways to pre-pay an account:
You can submit funds directly to your child’s school cafeteria. Checks should be made payable to Eastchester Union Free School District. Please send checks in a sealed envelope labeled with your child’s name, grade and amount enclosed. The deposit amount is not limited and there is no fee to make deposits at the register. You can monitor and/or add funds to your child’s account using the web-based “MyPaymentsPlus” or utilize the free mobile app for iOS & Android devices for cafeteria payments. All payments made online or using an app are subject to a fee of 4.75% of the transaction amount.
The free MyPaymentsPlus mobile app allows users to view balances, make payments, monitor cafeteria purchase history, and receive low balance push notifications. You can also search MyPaymentsPlus in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Features availability may vary by district.
You need to know your child’s school ID number for “MyPaymentsPlus”. This is not the same as the student PIN that is used to purchase food. The school ID is on the emergency contacts forms that are sent home to parents; it is also noted on the student report cards and on HS/MS student schedules; you can also contact your child’s school.
The following is a general description of the system and its features:
Every student is assigned a personal identification number (PIN) that remains the same K-12. Each time a student makes a food purchase, he/she will use the PIN or last name. A school picture of your child will appear on the screen to ensure that the student entering the PIN is using the correct number. Students should not share their PIN with others. If the account is pre-paid, a deduction will be made from the student’s account. Each student’s record of cafeteria purchases can be viewed by parents (whether you choose to pre-pay or not) by registering it. There is no charge to register, only charges to make deposits.
If you have any questions about the program, do not call the school office. Instead please contact Steven Kamlet, Food Service Director at 914-793-6130 x4234 or via email at Steven.Kamlet@compass-usa.com.
