    As you are aware, many changes have taken place in the cafeteria this year. New mandates from the Federal Government have impacted menu choices, caloric intake, and portion sizes. In addition, new record keeping requirements have resulted in the district having to install a new point of sale system for all cafeteria locations. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition from our old system, PowerLunch, to our new system. We are now putting in place the final part of our new system, which is called PAYPAMS.  To access more information, please click on this link PAYPAMS.
