Payment Procedure

How to Make Purchases in the School Cafe:

All students are assigned with a GLSD student ID number.  
This number also identifies your student in the school meals program. Your child will need to use this ID number when purchasing meals or ala carte items and applying funds to their school meals account. Please have your child memorize their GLSD student ID number. 
Payment Options:
We prefer that payments to the school cafeteria be made online or by mailing a check to the GLSD Food Service Department Office. If cash is sent in with your child, please send in a sealed payment envelope including the student’s first and last name and student ID number.  We strongly recommend checks instead of cash.  

When mailing a check, make the check payable to GLSD FSD and include the following information:

  • The name of student(s) to whom the payment is to be credited.
  • The school that each student attends. 
  • If the check is for more than one student, the amount that is to be credited to each child's account.
  • If not included on the check, your name and phone number.

Mail account payments to:

GLSD Food Service Department
131 High School Road
Latrobe, PA  15650
