We are reaching out with the first of a number of communications regarding the upcoming changes to our payment system for our cafeteria.
Parker is implementing a Point of Sale system (POS) that will allow students to have accounts. This system will likely look and feel similar to that of the system your children had in elementary school. It integrates with Rediker, our current student information management system. Students will be using their ID cards to pay at the register.
It will be important for the students to get used to carrying their ID cards with them on a daily basis! They can start by trying to locate their current ID card. Students receive new ID cards in the fall each year but the barcodes/numbers do not change from year to year; which means that all returning students will be able to use their 2016-2017 ID card in the fall until new ones are issued (which usually happens in early October). The more kids with their cards ready, the smoother the transition will go. Also, we will be sending out links to on online payment system soon that will allow parents to put money onto their student’s accounts, setup reminders, and setup auto refill options.
