Pin Code System

Our schools use a computerized meal credit system to account for student meals and a la carte purchases. Similar to a bank account, each student may deposit any amount of money into his or her account. To access this account, each student is assigned his/her own PIN number. The account may only be used for purchase of meals and a la carte food items. Money may be refunded at a parent's or guardians written request.

Payment Methods

Cash: Cash can be deposited to meal account and meal price will be deducted from account each time a purchase is made.

Check: To deposit money to meal account using a check, please make payable to Cherry Creek Schools Food and Nutrition Services.

WHO PLANS THE SCHOOL MENUS?

The menus are planned by registered dietitians in the Food and Nutrition Services office. New recipes and food products are taste-tested and evaluated by students. Menus are developed from this feedback.
 

ARE SCHOOL MEALS HEALTHY BY TODAY'S STANDARDS?

A healthy diet consists of a variety of foods eaten in moderation to promote good lifelong eating habits. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child Nutrition Program sets menu patterns and specific nutrient requirements that our breakfast and lunch menus meet. Recent legislation (Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act) made major changes to these requirements to further ensure that meals meet the needs of students. School meals provide the many nutrients needed to succeed in school and lead a healthy lifestyle.
 

WHY DOES AN ADULT MEAL COST MORE?

The school lunch program is available primarily for students and meals and food items are planned to meet their preferences and nutritional needs. Teachers and adults are served the same portions of food as the secondary school students. Because there is no federal subsidy for adults, the cost of an adult meal is more than the cost of a student meal. Parents or guardians are encouraged to eat with their student. Eating a meal at your student's school is a great opportunity to observe the cafeteria environment, the food options your student has each day and which of those options your student chooses. If you would like to eat with your student, please phone the kitchen manager by 9 a.m. to order a lunch.
 

WHAT ARE A LA CARTE FOODS?

A la carte foods are available for purchase in addition to the school meal. A la carte items vary with each school but can include fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice, cookies, fruit snacks, and a second main dish. The price for a la carte items is the same for adults and for students, including those students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. A la carte items can be paid for with cash or from your student's meal account.

 

WHAT IF I WANT TO PUT A LIMIT ON MY STUDENT'S ACCOUNT?

Parents or guardians can decide if they want their student to use his/her meal account for a la carte items. Parents or guardians can limit the days of the week that the student may purchase additional items (the day of the week must be specified) or prevent the purchase of any additional items at all. To set limits on your student's account, contact the kitchen manager at your student's school.

Please note it takes one to two school days for a payment to replenish your child’s account at the school cafeteria. Access PayPAMS by clicking on the link below.
