The Trumbull Schools use a computerized Point-of-Sale Program where all students have an account ready to be used for the purchase of lunches and snacks. All students are issued Bar Coded Personal Identification Number (PIN) that each child memorizes and enters at the serving line. With less cash to handle, the serving lines move much faster with the computerized point-of-sale allowing students more time to eat.  Any amount of money is deposited into the account. At mealtime, the student will punch in their (PIN) and the computer accesses his/her account. If there is money in the account, the purchases are deducted. Elementary Schools ONLY, if you wish your total amount to be for lunches only, you must note “for lunch only" on your deposit slip. If you wish purchases to be for both lunch and ala carte, you must note, lunch/a la carte on your deposit slip.

 You may, as in the past, send in cash for lunch and ALA carte purchases. If a student is eligible for free meals, the computer acts as if the student has meal credits in the account. If the student is reduced lunch, your prepayment will be deducted from the account. If there is no money in the account, you pay reduced price with cash. If there is no money in the account and the student is full priced, the computer will ask for the price of the purchases (you pay with cash).You may make a deposit (prepayment) at any time. Please use the deposit slip and write all information on the slip. Deposit slips are available on the menu and in your school cafeteria or from downloading below:
