Freedom Pay is a pre-loaded account, used exclusively for purchases in the HNHS cafeteria. Parents may fund each student's FreedomPay account with any amount and monitor purchases in order to budget spending throughout the year. A 4.25% funding fee is assessed to all account funding.
A bar code sticker will be placed on the back of the Student ID card sleeve. Once funds are applied, simply tap the bar code on the reader and the purchase will be deducted from the account. Similar to a credit card, Freedom Pay charges a fee, but unlike a credit card, the fee is not paid by the vendor and buried in the price of the purchase, but rather charged to the customer up front. Freedom Pay charges a flat fee of $15.00 annually and a funding fee of 4.25% for funds when they are loaded to the account.
