Online Meal Payment System

3 months ago

Dear Parents,

We realize it can be difficult to keep track of fees and payments to the school system. To help simplify payment of school cafeteria purchases, Grayson County Schools has enrolled in an internet based service called MySchoolBucks. The service is a website where you can pay for your child’s breakfast and lunch purchases using your Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, debit, or electronic check. Participation is this service is voluntary and you may enroll at any time. You may also enroll in the service to simply monitor your child’s account balance and to monitor what your child is purchasing each day. You do not have to use the payment option.

MySchoolBucks® is your online payment portal; giving you a quick and easy way to manage and add funds to your student’s meal account. You can review recent purchases along with seeing the current balance, plus receive low balance alerts… all for FREE! You can also add money to your student’s account using Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, debt card, or electronic check for a small fee. A $2.50 fee per transaction is charged to cover the cost of processing your payment and maintaining the website.

 The most popular feature is our “Set it and forget it” payment option, which automatically adds funds to your student’s meal account. Funds can be added weekly, monthly or when the balance runs low, (simply choose the “Setup a payment schedule” option during the checkout).


MySchoolBucks® provides…
• Safety.  Your child will no longer need to carry cash to school.  

• Convenience.  Make payments* when it’s convenient for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

• Control. Set low balance alerts, view account activity, recurring payments & more! 

• Efficiency. Make payments for all your children in one easy step- even if they attend different schools within the district.

• Flexibility. Make payments using VISAMasterCardDiscover CardDebit or Electronic check.


Enrollment is easy!

  1. Go to www.mySchoolBucks.com and register for a free account. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provide; click on the link included in the email to activate your account.
  2. Activate your account and begin adding your students. You will need their school name, student name, student date of birth, or the student ID number. Independence Middle School students will need to sign up under the school name Grayson County High School because that is the school where they purchase meals.
  3. Add funds* to your students’ accounts with your Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, debit card, or electronic check.

*Security is a priority at mySchoolBucks. Our system is secure, providing the highest level of protection for your information. A convenience fee may apply to payments made in your student accounts. You will have the opportunity to review any fees (and cancel, if you choose) before you are charged. Money deposited into lunch accounts can take up to 12 hours to post.

If you have any questions concerning use of the website, we encourage you to use the contact information on the website. If you have questions concerning account balances, feel free to contact me at the numbers below.  


Thank You

School Nutrition Charge Policy

GRAYSON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS SCHOOL NUTRITION PROGRAMS CHARGE POLICY/COLLECTION PROCEDURES

Unpaid meal charges are not allowed in the Child Nutrition Program according to cost principles determined in accordance with federal regulations. Therefore, no free meals may be served unless a student has been approved for such through the proper application process.

In order to ensure compliance, the following procedures will be implemented:

*Student cafeteria accounts have a $25 charge limit.

*Adults are not allowed to charge meals.

*Once the $25 limit is reached, students will not be allowed to purchase or charge a la carte items (bottled water, extra entrees, snack items, etc.)

*Once the limit is reached, all regular meals will be on a cash basis until the debt has been cleared or a payment plan arranged.

*All account balances, both positive and negative, will be carried forward from year to year.

*Prepayments are encouraged, as they result in faster lunch lines and more time for the students to eat.

*All money collected will be placed in the student account to be used for breakfast, lunch, and a la carte items. If the parent wants to set limits or restrict the sale of a la carte items on their child’s account, they should contact the school cafeteria manager.

*Parents are encouraged to sign up for an online account at myschoolbucks.com in order to add money to their account, and view activity and balances.

The following notification procedures will be used to remind parents of their child’s debt:

*Automated phone calls are made once the debt reaches $10.00 *Cafeteria Manager will send letters home with the students concerning the debt *When the debt reaches $25, the cafeteria manager will call the parents and notify them that no more charges can be made. *All calls will be documented, and parents will be encouraged to apply for free/reduced meal benefits if the need exists.
