Online payment for lunch?

Not yet. At tonight's P.T.O. meeting, Ms. D'Avilar was alerted to the existence of mylunchmoney.com, an online-payment system used at P.S. 321 in Park Slope. She pledged to consider it.

For the time being, here's how lunch money works at P.S. 9: Students may bring cash or a check in an envelope with their name, their teacher's name and their class number. The child gives that to the teacher in the morning. The teacher will then give collected funds to a school aide, who will assign the money to the student's name. Students may pay daily, weekly or monthly. For the time being, students may not "bank" meals in advance, drawing on their account only on those days they want to opt to buy.

Parents should receive a receipt for lunch money the day following payment. -Kirby Pulver
