EIS students need only to give the lunch lady a thumbs-up this fall to receive their noon-time meals.
New biometric technology in the cafeteria will read each child’s thumbprint to validate his or her identity.
Superintendent Buddy Berry said the biggest advantage is that students can only access their own accounts. “Kids can’t type in another code,” he said. “Besides that, it’s just really cool.”
Another plus is that parents may check how much money they have left in the child’s account online.
