Dothan City Schools has rolled out an Internet-based system that allows parents to pay for their children's meals online.

   The district's child nutrition program director Tonya Grier told the Dothan Eagle ( ) the online system, which was launched this week, will make paying for school meals more convenient and will remind parents when meal accounts are running out of money.

   Grier says the system will also let parents know how often their child is eating at school.
