Meal Payments
Our Point of Sale system is set up to take credit/debit cards and electronic checks via the Pay-For-It system found at An account needs to be set-up for your child(ren) using their PIN (student ID) number. This system will allow you to view the purchases your child(ren) have made for the past 14 days as well as allow you to add money to their account. The system can also send email reminders of your child’s account balance when you set up the information. You do not have to pay online to view your child’s account..

Point of Sale Software
Food services operates under a Point of Sale (POS) system, which means EVERY student must type in their student ID number (PIN) in order to purchase any items. For incoming kindergarteners and first graders, a PIN will be mailed home to you in late August with a copy of the PIN pad for practicing their number entry. Under POS, each student has an account and the correct amount is removed (debited) from the account when the child purchases an item. Parents are encouraged to send money in the form of checks to be placed on student accounts or on our on-line payment system (see pay-for-it below). Please place the child’s name or PIN number in the memo portion of the check. All money left on the account at the end of the school year, stays with the student and will transfer to the next grade. Refunds are only granted if a student withdraws from the school district.

Charge Policy
North Canton City Schools will allow a child to charge a meal in the event that the child forgets his/her lunch money. Please set up an account in the Pay-For-It system to view your child’s balance and purchases in order limit your child from having to charge. Grades K-5 are permitted to charge a total of three meals with a letter accompanying the child home, explaining that a charge took place. After three charges, your child will receive a cheese sandwich and milk at a cost of $1.75 for that day. Grades 6-8 only three charges permitted per year with a letter accompanying the child home. All charges must be paid in full prior the Memorial Day holiday. There is no charging permitted after the Memorial Day holiday.

Please note that there will be no charging permitted at the High School level under any circumstances.
