  • Students to make Daily Menu purchases at the Kennel simply by entering their student ID number on a numeric keypad.
  • Kennel volunteers to record student food selections on a POS terminal at each window. The charge is automatically deducted from the student's account.
  • Parents to view their transaction history online - payments, current balance and student purchases.
  • Kennel management to monitor sales and inventory for effective menu planning.
MealTime is used for purchasing Daily Menu items only. Please click MealTime System to learn more about it.
