Kennedy Catholic uses REVTRAK for the on-line cafeteria account management.
You must register in the new system to access the new cafeteria account system. The on-line student cafeteria accounts allow you to monitor your student’s meal purchases, track your student’s purchases, make deposits directly into their meal accounts, and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low. Student debit account deposits can be made through ACH payments or by credit card. Parents can also setup Auto Replenish for their student’s account.
1. Click “Create New Account” and fill the required information.
2. Click "Make a Payment" in the Food Service tile
3. Click "Add Student" then enter your Student’s School ID and Verification Code.
4. After the students are added, you can view account activity and make payments.
5. ACH and credit card payments will be charged a processing fee of 3.62% when funding online the accounts. We do not take credits cards in the cafeteria but we will take cash.
6. When students come in to the cafeteria to make a purchase, they will enter a pin code which is the last five numbers of their school ID. It is important that they not share their pin code with anyone.
To get your school ID, pin and verification code, or for questions about the cafeteria, please contact the cafeteria manager, Katie Watland at 206-246-8900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
