The Carlisle Area School District Child Nutrition Department is proud to provide parents with the ability to view your child’s cafeteria activity through a website called SchoolCafe.  Parents have the ability to view their child’s purchases on a history report that will display all dates, times and items that your child has purchased at breakfast, lunch, and/or a la carte within the last thirty days.

As an additional convenience, SchoolCafe also provides parents with a secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account.  By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.

Click here to access SchoolCafe to create a username and password and your student(s). 

Things to know:

  • •   If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.  You can make deposits to multiple students in your account with one transaction.
  • •   You can setup automatic low balance e-mail notifications for the students enrolled in the program 
  • •   Payments may be made through most major credit and debit cards.
  • • Set up Auto Pay

We are very excited to offer you this service. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service you may continue to make advance meal payments via check, which should be made payable to “CASD Food Service”.  Please write your child’s full name and ID number on the check. 

If you have any questions about these new services, please call Laura Evans at 717-240-6800 x16816.
