Dear Parent or Guardian:

Welcome to NUTRIKIDS /MySchoolBucks Online Meal Payments

We are ready to introduce the new school meal payment system- Nutrikids!  Beginning Tuesday, January 10th, breakfast and lunch service will be processed using this system.

When your child is paying for their meal, they will be using a Student ID card.

•Students in grades 9-12 will use their current student ID Card.

•Students in grades 6-8 will be receiving new student ID cards on Monday 1/9/2017.

•Students in Grades K-5 will have their student ID cards held in their school building for safe-keeping.

We are also excited to offer MySchoolBucks®! This secure, online payment service provides a quick and easy way to add money to your student’s meal account using a credit/debit card or electronic check.

 

MySchoolBucks provides:

•Convenience - Available 24/7 on the web or through our mobile app for your smartphone.

•Efficiency - Make payments for all your students, even if they attend different schools within the district.  Eliminate the need for your students to take money to school.

•Control - Set low balance alerts, view account activity, recurring/automatic payments & more!

•Flexibility - Make payments using credit/debit cards and electronic checks.

•Security – MySchoolBucks adheres to the highest security standards, including PCI and CISP.

 

Enrollment is easy and available now!

Go to www.MySchoolBucks.com and register your child.

Add your child’s information using their school name and student ID (available on Infinite Campus Parent Portal).

Make a payment to your students’ accounts with your credit/debit card or electronic check.

A transaction fee of $1.95 is charged as deposits are made.  This fee goes directly to MySchoolBucks as a payment for the service.

Please note:  If you wish to pay for your child’s meal as you have in the past (i.e. Cash or Check in person), you may continue to do so.  MySchoolBucks is simply an alternative way for you to pay for the meal.
