Meal Accounts

Meal Accounts
  • Each active Dryden student automatically has a meal account set up for his/her use through our One Source POS system. This account is designed to function as a debit system, where parents or students deposit money into their accounts for future use in the cafeteria. The District’s Charge Policy is discussed separately below.
  • Deposits may be made by sending in check with the student or by using the online payment system which is described below. Checks sent to school should be in a sealed envelope with the student’s name on it. The envelope should be given to the child’s teacher (students K-5) or given to a Cafeteria cashier (students 6-12). Deposits can also be made in person at the Food Service Office which is located in the Middle School Cafeteria. Checks may also be mailed to the Food Service Office using the District’s mailing address (PO Box 88; Dryden, NY 13053).
  • Each student has both a “Meal” and a “General” account set up. The “Meal” account can only be used to purchase full meals. It cannot be used to purchase snacks, extra entrees, drinks or second meals. It is useful for the parent that would like to restrict their child’s purchases. Money deposited on the “General” account can be used to purchase anything for sale in the cafeteria including full meals. The parent should specify into which account they would like the money deposited.
  • Meal prices for the school year: (K-5) Breakfast is $1.35, Lunch is $2.50. For (6-12) Breakfast is $1.40, Lunch is $2.90. Additional milk or juice is $.60 and ice cream is $.80.
