The Nutrition and Food Service Department is preparing to implement a new POS (Point
of Sales) system called “Nutrikids” in our school district with a launch date of May 13,
Every student in the district has been entered into this new computerized system.
Students will be using their same lunch card (GMS) or pin number (LMS and CHS) to
make purchases at the serving lines.
Meal payment deposits will be made the same way. Students may bring in cash or check
to school to deposit into their meal accounts or parents may make deposits online using a
credit or debit card. Our new online payment system called “My School Bucks” will be
in operation May 19, 2014. Go to their website www.myschoolbucks.com to register for
a new account. Then, create an account for each of your children by using their name
and date of birth as the passcode. Please be aware that only payments for school meals
and no other school fees can be paid with this online system.
Parents currently using “mymealtime.com” can continue making online deposits until
Friday, April 25, 2014, when their service will end. We strongly recommend that
parents/guardians deposit enough money into their children’s online accounts before
April 25 to cover the 3 weeks that online payment system is non-operational or send
lunch payments to school with your child.
If your child has qualified for free or reduced meal prices, this information is noted in
the system, and the meal will be processed just as it is for all other students without any
special indication to the students.
If you are concerned about a food allergy that your son/daughter has, please notify the
cafeteria with this information. If indicated, a warning will appear on the cashiers’ screen
for a review of the items on the student’s tray.
We are excited to bring Nutrikids and My School Bucks into the district as it has
updated and improved features to make operations more efficient. If you have questions,
please feel free to email or call me at my office at 546-0300 Ext. 3112.

A few reminders for parents:
- If your child will be absent or late to school, please remember to call and report it. Dial the school, 424-5931, and press 6 to leave a message. Be sure to leave your child's full name, and the reason for the absence or tardiness.
- If you would like to pick up your child or make any change to their regular dismissal routine, it is very important to send a note to the classroom teacher. Please use at least a 5" X 8" piece of paper (less likely to get lost in the backpack), and include the child's FULL name, teacher's name, date(s) of dismissal and the FULL name of the person that will be dismissing your child. Click to print a Dismissal note example.
Come to Griffin Memorial School from 10:00 am-2:00 pm to register your child for Kindergarten or 1st Grade.
