AIM recently updated the processing system for lunch at AIM. We had a “soft opening” for the new system at the start of school this year with our faculty and staff, and are now ready to integrate the whole AIM community. This will affect the “Forgotten Lunch” policy, as well as the way that forgotten lunches are handled.
The system, MySchoolAccount, uses AIM-issued ID badges to process forgotten lunches. Lower School students will not need an ID badge to access this system. The only changes for students is that Middle School and Upper School students will swipe their badges upon entry to the cafeteria if they do not bring their own lunch and they must have money in their accounts to purchase a forgotten lunch. Lower School students purchasing lunch will receive meals at their tables as usual. All students will still be able to choose between the main meal, a sandwich and the salad bar.
Students who have lunch plans will automatically be enrolled in the MySchoolAccount system, and we encourage all families to create and fund an account so that, should a student forget their lunch, they will be able to easily access the system and purchase a lunch.
Look for an email from MySchoolAccount with login instructions and your registration ID in your in box. You can read some FAQs about the new system as well as our updated Forgotten Lunch Policy below.

Updated Forgotten Lunch Policy
This service is provided purely for students who have legitimately forgotten their lunch. As the Kitchen team plans and orders food for lunch in advance, we cannot offer a “pay-as-you-go” option.
AIM can provide lunch for students who have forgotten their lunch once an account has been established for them through MySchoolAccount. We will no longer accept cash in the Dining Hall. If a student forgets lunch, their MySchoolAccount will be charged. The cost of each “forgotten lunch” is $12. MS and US students will swipe their ID badge to access the MySchoolAccount. LS families will communicate the need for a lunch through their teacher, and their MySchoolAccount will be accessed by the student’s name.
Funds need to be available by the student’s lunch period in order for them to receive lunch.
All families not on a lunch plan are encouraged to create and fund an account through this link.
