Pre-Payment Options

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.

MySchoolbucks  is our new site for meal payments. Enjoy a lower transaction fee of $2.49 (per transaction) regardless of the number of students and payment amount to accounts.

File Manager -> MCSnewsqr.jpg To minimize the $2.49 fee it is best to add credit to each child’s account, once a month, in one transaction. 




Example: If Mary needs money today and next week Johnny needs money, you will pay $4.98 ($2.49 each time) when you make a transaction.  But, if you pay for both students today, you will only pay $2.49 for the transaction.

  • Parents/Faculty will need the student’s ID number to set up access (this means schools may get parents calling to request student ID numbers). Nutrition Services also has access and can provide it if we are called, instead of the school.
  • Payments as well as email reminders and notifications, may be set up online for all students.
  • Remember that payment posting to accounts may take 24 hours, depending on the time of payment.   If Internet access is available at the site, payments will be delivered real time.

Nutrition Services Non-Sufficient Fund Checks (NFS) Policy and Procedure

Non-sufficient fund (NSF) checks include any check written to pay for student meals and returned to Nutrition Services from the bank stating that the check has not been paid. This can happen for insufficient funds, closed account, stop payment, etc.  In order to reduce the burden on the parent or guardian, any NSF check will NOT be charged a processing fee by Nutrition Services.  The intended amount of the check will be removed from the student’s account upon receipt of the returned check from the bank.  If this causes the student’s meal account to become negative, the student will not be able to charge a meal and will be offered the appropriate “alternate meal”.  Nutrition Services will attempt to contact the parent or guardian by phone the same day the check is removed from the student’s account.  The parent will be notified of the new account balance.  In order for the student to purchase a meal, the parent or guardian must deposit additional funds to bring the student’s account to an adequate amount to cover the cost of the meal.  Note, in the case of this causing the student’s account to become negative, the parent or guardian will have to pay the debt to the account.  After an NSF check is received from the parent/guardian, Nutrition Services will NOT accept checks from this parent or guardian for the remainder of the school year.  The parent or guardian must pay in cash at the school or by credit card or debit card online.  The parent or guardian may write checks again the following school year.
