Maui High School, located in Kahului, Hawaii, has adopted an automated meal card system now requiring students to use their student ID when purchasing meals in the cafeteria.
Students will each be issued a new student ID badge which links to a meal account. When meals are purchased, funds are taken from the student’s meal account. The meal account is similar to a debit card account, allowing cash deposits to be made by students or parents.
Cash will no longer be accepted when students pick up their meals in the cafeteria. If a student does not have a meal card for a particular day they can request a temporary issue from school’s main office. Excessive requests could result in disciplinary action carried out by administration to ensure student responsibility.
The required use of student identification badges for our meal system reinforces our school’s policy of mandatory student ID badges, said Maui High School, which provides security measures and school activities for our students on our school campus.
