Happy Summer to everyone!
It’s that time of year to talk AfterCare registration. We need to know if your son is going to be with us this year!
Here are a few more details about paying for your son’s lunch.
The EZ School App accepts Credit and Debit Cards only.
To add money to your account without ordering a meal, click on the Save/Pay button at the bottom of the menu and it will ask you if you want to add money.
The credit card company (not PDS or Piccadilly) charges a small credit card fee per transaction (i.e. each time you pay for ordered meals or add money to your account).
The fee is 2.9% of the total amount you have ordered plus any money you have added to the account + a 30 cent flat fee.
|Number of Meals Ordered for August||12|
|Number of Meals Ordered for September||18|
|Total Meals Ordered||30|
|Cost per Meal||$6.16|
|Credit Card Fee Percentage||2.9%|
|Percentage Credit Card Fee||5.3592|
|Flat Credit Card Fee||$0.3|
|Total Amount Charge to Card||$190.4592|
If you ordered lunch every day for your son and you were able to do that in 4 transactions, your total credit card fee would be only about $30 for the year.
There is a minimum credit card fee of $1.95, so to minimize the fee order as infrequently as you can and preferably over $50 at a time.

Here are some more details about our new lunch program. Additionally, you can see the meal offerings through the end of September on the lunch calendar.
The new Piccadilly lunch program is offered to boys in 1st through 6th grades.
With each “meal” (a hot entrée or cold sandwich), you may choose any 3 sides, hot or cold.
Each meal includes milk or water (and unsweet tea in the faculty room). All meals must be pre-ordered by midnight the night before using www.ezschoolapps.com .
Cold sides and drinks may also be purchased as à la carte items and do NOT need to be preordered.
Most cold sides will be available every day. Some of the cold sides will only be available when in season, but there will always be many options available.
Piccadilly will always strive to serve fresh food with quality ingredients, prepared daily!
