Prepaid Cash Accounts

The Food Services Department offers prepaid cash accounts for parents who like to prepay for their child’s school meal accounts with cash or check.

Student accounts

This is a debit account (not a credit account). The money you send to school to the Food Service Department is deposited into their account as cash. The value of each purchase will be deducted from their account.

Student meal payment process

Scotchtown Avenue Elementary School students do not need to learn their PIN number. Their account is accessed by the cashier. Goshen Intermediate School and C. J. Hooker Middle School students must enter their PIN onto a computer pad. Goshen High School students may either swipe their Student ID card or enter their PIN onto a computer pad.

How to prepay

Payment may be made by cash or check made out to Cafeteria Fund. Please put all payments in an envelope, noting your student’s first and last name and PIN. If you have students in different schools, you must send the cash or check to each building.

Free- and reduced-price meal program

If a student is approved for this program, the computer references their status and charges accordingly. If a student is not eligible for free meals, and does not have any funds, the purchase is charged to the student’s account.

PLEASE remind your student not to share their ID number with anyone.
