Cafeteria Information

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!  I hope everyone had a nice summer and is ready for a great year at Whipple Heights. I would like to take this opportunity to communicate some information that will hopefully help make your child’s cafeteria experiences run smoothly and be most enjoyable.  

First, each student will have a PIN number to enter daily in the lunchroom. If your child doesn’t already know their pin, please have your child practice and learn this number as it makes for a much smoother lunch period.  (PIN numbers follow your child from year-to-year.)

Second, each student will receive a free/reduced meal form at the beginning of the school year. If you would like to apply, please fill out the paper and return it to the cafeteria as soon as possible so that we can certify your application.  If you do not receive this form, simply let us know, and we will ensure you get one.

Regarding cafeteria payments, you may send in cash/check with your child to put on their account or you may do it online by going to the Perry Local website and clicking on PayForIt.net. You have the option to put any amount of money on your child’s account. It does not need to be specified what the money is to be used for as it all goes into one account for your child. If you have more than one child at Whipple Heights, you may send one check and just write in the memo line how much goes on each account. If your child’s account goes into a negative status, they will still be allowed to charge a lunch, but no extras can be purchased.  Also, I will send letters home weekly by email or paper copy if the account is in the negative to keep charge amounts to a minimum. If you would like a receipt, please simply note that when you send money in.

NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR BEVERAGES ARE PERMITTED IN THE WHIPPLE CAFETERIA FOR STUDENTS OR ADULTS.  Also, if you choose to join your child for lunch, they will be permitted to pick two friends to sit with at our special visitor tables.

If you would like any restrictions (such as no breakfast purchases, no extras or no water) on your child’s account, please email me Christine.jackson@perrylocal.org or call the cafeteria directly.  

Lastly, if your child has any food allergies that need to be noted, we require a doctor’s note with the specifics of what they can/can not be provided.  We are not permitted to accept a note from a parent, only from a doctor.

On behalf of all of us in the cafeteria, we look forward to welcoming your child(ren) back this year in the cafeteria, and we appreciate your support.
