Dear Parents & Student(s);

As we approach the 2017-2018 school year I would like to take the time to update and hopefully answer questions concerning the computerized point of sale system and payment methods used in your school’s cafeteria.  Please read the following information carefully, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact the school food service office.

QuikLunch will continue to be utilized as our computerized debit system. Students will use their assigned personal identification number (PIN) to access their account.  New and transfer students will be assigned a PIN number on the first day of school, which can be obtained from the Cafeteria Manager. Pin numbers are used for all transactions including cash sales.

We are excited to announce that our online payment system PayForIt.net has been enhanced and is now called PaySchools Central. This system not only allows you to pay for meals through an easy-to-use online portal (www.payschoolscentral.com), you can also use a convenient mobile app, for on the go use and management of your student’s lunch account!

PayForIt.net users can use their existing username & password to access PaySchools Central.  For new users creating an account is easy, quick and free! Once your account is created simply add your child to the system using their student ID number and school district (Archdiocese of Philadelphia).

Once your account is created, you will find a variety of features that will make the management of your student’s account easier such as detailed purchase reports, email reminders, and more.  Lunch deposits payed online will incur an internet convenience fee. When using a debit or credit card this fee is 4.75% per transaction. The ACH fee when using an electronic check is $1.75 per transaction.

You can also continue to send direct payment through cash, a certified check, or a money order to your school’s cafeteria via mail or your student can bring it directly to the school cafeteria. Please note non-certified personal checks can no longer be accepted.

We will never turn away child from dining with us if they don’t have money. We will allow students to go into the negative. If there is a negative balance, we will not allow the purchase of pre-packaged snacks, drinks, or ice cream. We will allow for your son or daughter to purchase the meal of the day.

ARAMARK is the contracted cafeteria provider for Visitation BVM School.  All questions regarding the POS system can be directed to the Cafeteria Manager, Diane Moleton.  Balances for returning students will be carried over to the next school year.  We highly recommend that you monitor the account balance as the school year comes to a close, to minimize the amount of money that is carried over. Monies may also be transferred to siblings or if your child transfers to another Archdiocesan High School.

Sincerely,

Eric Colebaugh

District Manager- ARAMARK
