If you elect to allow your students to purchase a la carte items please open an account with Titan School Solutions and deposit money onto your student's account using your credit or debit card. A fee of $2.60 will be charged at the time of the deposit transaction. Currently we are only selling milk and juice. We will reevaluate this before Fall break and notify families of any changes.
