Mealtime and Cafe

Mealtime and Cafe

Our RMS cafeteria uses a computerized cashless debit system program, MealTime. Each student is assigned a PIN number, which he/she will use to draw from when purchasing items from our cafeteria. New students will receive login information for Mealtime online once all registration paperwork is processed.

Some parents choose to provide enough money to last for a few weeks; some for a full quarter. We encourage you to discuss with your student how to responsibly use this account. Parents and students can request a printout of what has been purchased and/or view this online.

Creating a MealTime Online Account for New Student(s) Parent/ Guardian logs onto and follows directions for “Create a New Profile” to set up their student(s).

When and what do we serve?

The café at RMS welcomes students each morning with warm muffins, danish, cereal/ milk, fresh fruit, juice(s) and other beverages. All students are welcome prior to the 7:55 am bell.

Snack Break is served between 9:40 and 9:55 each day, with a slight time difference on Wednesdays- a good break to refuel and reenergize- the cafe usually has a little something special to serve along with the regular items.                                                                    

Lunch is served in two shifts with 6th grade eating period 5A and 7th and 8th graders eating 5B. Students are dispersed throughout the school for eating, which changes quarterly. The café offers a variety of items each day, with at least one daily special. The winter of 2015 brought us our famous salad bar which offers a bounty of fresh vegetables and other toppings on a daily basis, along with special theme events. Pasta is a staple at the café with three different sauce toppings, along with items from the grill... burgers, veggie burgers, turkey burgers, and a grill special. To round out our daily offerings there is soup, pizza, sandwiches, snacks, fresh fruit, and a variety of beverages and snacks.
