MERRILLVILLE | Many of the Merrillville Intermediate School students had their right index finger scanned on Monday. Next school year, 2014-'15, each student in the MCSC that was scanned will just put their right index finger on the scanner to identify themselves. The cost of their lunch will be automatically deducted from their account as they go through the lunch line.

All parents were notified ahead of time and given a form. Some parents opted not have their students fingers scanned, those students will use the barcode on their ID’s to purchase food. Barcodes on the students IDs have been used this year and in past years. Parents will still be able to put money on their child’s lunch account and check on the balance over the internet.

Many student IDs are left home or lost before the student lunch period starts.

Finger scanning identifies the correct student’s account, no ID card is required, therefore no chance of student mix-ups.
