HCPSS Student Meal Announcement
Parents may prepay for student meals by setting up an online account at www.schoolpaymentsolutions.com. Students also have the option of paying with cash on a daily basis. Each student has been issued a PIN to use when purchasing meals with cash or prepayment. If a student has forgotten their PIN, cashiers can look the PIN up by student name. This PIN allows HCPSS to receive reimbursements from the National School Lunch Program. Meals purchased without a PIN are not reimbursable. Therefore, effective January 2, 2014, all meals purchased without a PIN will have an additional charge (and $0.30 for breakfast and $0.60 for lunch).
For more information, please visit the HCPSS website.
