Pre-pay for meals through MySchoolBucks

Attention parents: You can access your child’s school lunch account online! Visit 

Use your existing PayPal account, credit card or debit card to make prepayments to your children’s accounts through the MySchoolBucks website. In the cafeterias, students use the point of sale system to access the funds in their accounts when they purchase meals.

Through the system, you also have the opportunity to monitor your children’s purchase history. The web-based reports provide all dates and times that your children purchased breakfast or lunch in the past 30 days.

You also have the option of providing your children with cash to pay for school meals or to prepay via checks made out to MCS Cafeteria.

Heartland School Solutions, which owns the program, announced that it was increasing the convenience fee parents pay to add money to their children’s accounts as of December 11, 2017.

“We are writing to let you know that we are increasing the MySchoolBucks program convenience fee that parents pay from $1.95 per payment to $2.49 per payment. 

“This is the first time in our 16 year history of taking school meal prepayments that we have raised this program fee. During this time, our costs have increased steadily, particularly as the card schemes have increased their fees to us. Unfortunately we are no longer able to absorb the entirety of these increases while still maintaining excellent service and support.”
