How do students pay for lunch? 

NPS utilizes a computerized cash system to better serve students and parents as well as keep an accurate accounting system. All students have an account number which is their I.D. number given when registering for school. This I.D. number is theirs until they graduate. Money is deposited into accounts (in any amount) through MiStar ParentPortal, which may be accessed 24 hours a day, any money left in the account will be carried over to the next school year. 
Secondary Level
At the secondary level, when the student scans their card or enters their account number on the keypad, the money is automatically deducted from their account. One lunch will be free this includes; one entree, one fruit, one vegetable and a milk.  Any additional lunches, items, snacks and beverages must be purchased ala carte. 

Elementary Level
