Finger Scan ID

Exeter Food Service will use a new technology in the EHS, CMS, and Exeter Elementary cafeterias that identifies the child by the touch of his/her finger and then allows your child to access his/her meal account. This system will move the students through the lines very quickly and provides accurate identification without a student ID card. Please read the following documents for more information and if you have any additional questions, please refer them to the school cafeteria manager who will forward them to our team.
