Swipe'n'Pay is our cashless payment system. There are two simple options to pay in either the Early Childhood Center* or the Middle School/HighSchool Cafeterias. You may use your bank PIN card as you would in any shop or you may register for our new Swipe'n'Pay system which is associated with your ASH ID Badge. Once you have registered for Swipe'n'Pay, you can upload cash onto your ASH ID badge using the Swipe'n'Pay machine (similar to an ATM) in either the Early Childhood Center or the Middle School/High School Cafeteria. You can also upload cash onto your ASH ID badge via the web (bank) loader.

*Please be advised that Elementary School students do not use badges, so that is only applicable to parents, staff, MS and HS students.
