Saint Leo’s Cafeteria is a cash free environment and does not accept cash for purchases.
Eliminating cash and creating a Family Lunch Account is be a benefit to both you and your child/children:
- The cafeteria moves faster and more efficiently
- Your student has more time to eat
- No “after the fact” bills for a replaced lunch
- No lost lunch money
There are two easy ways to create a Family Lunch Account so that your child will able to “purchase” items in the cafeteria.
- PayPal: Saint Leo the Great Money on Account Replenishment
The online option is easily accessed on the School website under the “Lunch” tab. Follow the prompts and submit payment using your PayPal account. There is a one time registration fee of $12 per family for this service.
- Check: A monthly amount in your family’s name sent directly to School
If using the monthly check option , you may send your check to School (payable to Saint Leo the Great School) with your child, drop it off, or mail payment clearly marked Attn: Cafeteria.
While creating an account is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended that each family create a Family Lunch Account that has a minimum balance of ten dollars per student. This amount is an emergency fund , equal to two (2) days of lunches per student, to cover those times when lunch is lost or left behind, or circumstances prevent you from preparing a lunch from home. The computer will automatically send an e-mail when your account falls below the required amount.
Funds in a Family Lunch Account , whether through PayPal or check, can be carried over from year to year, student to student, or if requested, can be refunded at the end of the year. However, if a Family Lunch Account is closed and subsequently re-opened, a “registration fee” of $12.00 will be incurred.
Bag Lunch Orders
The process for ordering a Bag lunch will remain as last year – visit our school website and use the “Bag Lunch Order Form” page which will be paid for immediately through your PayPal account. Please note that money you have added to your Family Lunch Account cannot be used for a Bag Lunch Order.
Parents are encouraged to decide which way they will be paying for their child’s lunch and signup or submit payment immediately.
