MySchoolBucks is an option for parents to conveniently pre-pay their child’s school lunch account online using a credit or debit card.
In addition to pre-paying, MySchoolBucks also gives parents the ability to set up a free account to monitor student meal purchases, receive e-mail notifications for low account balances, set spending limits and choose recurring payment options,
Both the district and students benefit by using MySchoolBucks. Fewer cash payments handled at the registers speed up the lunch lines which allows for more time to sit and enjoy lunch, and prepaid student accounts eliminate the problem of lost lunch money.
