Cashless Dining at Albertus Magnus High School
We are pleased to inform you about a cashless payment option for purchasing food in the cafe at Albertus Magnus High School. This option means that students do not have to bring cash to school each day to make purchases in the cafeteria, but instead, will be able to pay using their Albertus ID card. We have contracted with My Kids Spending and the directions for how to sign up are below.
When you set up the account, you will be able to set a minimum balance threshold for automatic replenishment. Once the balance drops below your threshold the system will automatically fund the account with the amount you have set ($50 minimum). You will receive an email notification of this transaction. In addition you will be able to see how the money is being spent, not just by amount, but exactly what the student is buying as well. There is no limit as to how many times a student uses the card in one day, all that is needed is a sufficient balance to afford the purchases.
Please note that we will still be taking cash for purchases. Albertus accepts cash and checks at the register to fund the student account as well. Checks should be made out to Cater to You. There is no fee for account funding at the register.
