Useful information about PIZZA ACCOUNTS

A Cadet's pizza account is DIFFERENT for the cadet accounts that are managed by 

 Commander Morse and Gunnery Sergeant Collins.  


The Parents Association organizes and serves pizza during Chow on Wednesday evenings to cadets attending evening class.  Typically, chow (dinner) is from 18:30 19:00 (6:30 - 7:00 p.m.) in the Wheeling High School cafeteria.  A cadet may bring food from home or may purchase pizza, however, microwaves and refrigerators are not provided.  

Cadets may opt to purchase a large slice of pizza (choice of cheese, pepperoni or sausage) and a bottle of water for $2.00.  If seconds are available, "seconds" will be called and are served on a first come-first serve basis for $2.00 per slice. 


Payment can be handled one of two ways:


1.    Cadets may put money "on account" and the parent association will have the cadet sign in on a sheet for pizza, deducting the $2.00 from the account if a slice if purchased; or

2.    Cadets may pay money as they go and bring cash each week.  If the cadet pays cash s/he should NOT sign in for pizza.  


If your child is short of funds, the Parent Association will show a debit in their "pizza account" and the cadet will be allowed to eat, but must pay for the previous week's meal the following week.  Cadets should check their balance to makes sure they are not in arrears.


If there is a financial issue preventing the cadet from paying for his or her pizza they should see Master Sgt Galarza to discuss the situation.
