Parents Can Track Student Lunch Purchases
Troy, NC – A new technology available to Montgomery County Schools allows parents to track what their children are purchasing in the school cafeteria as well as make online prepayments.
The Internet website www.k12paymentcenter.com provides access to a 90-day history of what students are buying for breakfast and lunch. For a $10.00 ONE-TIME FEE, parents get a premium service that includes 24/7 secure access to their student’s meal history, as well as the ability to prepay for school meals. There is not a one-time fee if parents choose basic service. Basic service is prepayments only. When parents make payments, there is a $1.95 flat fee per payment charge to cover the cost of processing the credit card transaction.
