Buying school lunches for your child is now easy with the installation of a new electronic point of sale (cashier/POS) system. MySchoolBucks.com provides parents a convenient and secure online prepayment service so that you can deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance and set automatic account reloads.
To access the service, simply log on to MySchoolBucks.com and register your student(s). The process is simple. However you will need your child’s permanent student ID number (this is the number that appears on report cards, class schedules and most official documents you receive from the district). If you still have trouble finding the number please contact school office at (310) 546-8022.
REDUCED LUNCH PROGRAM:
All students participating in the free or reduced lunch program must use their MySchoolBucks.com Account. Parents must deposit a sufficient amount of money on the account to cover the cost of reduced fee of $0.40 per daily lunch. Our system will not allow a $0.40 cash payment at the register. We recommend a $10 deposit at a time, as long as your child does not purchase any items a la carte or any second meals, as they are not included in the NSLP program.
NO MORE BORROW SLIPS:
Due to abuse of borrow slips, and the huge financial loss that we have incurred in the past, we no longer allow them. If your child has no lunch at lunch time, a cheese sandwich and milk will be offered to them. They will not be entitled to the lunch on the menu. They must still go to the office and pick up a “no lunch” slip.
PAYMENT VIA CHECKS:
We are very excited to offer these new services, and are confident this new system will benefit you, your child, and our district. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service, you may continue to make advance payments via check made payable to MBUSD FOOD SERVICES. Please write your CHILD’S FULL NAME, ID NUMBER AND SCHOOL NAME on the check. Checks will take 48 hours to process and appear on your child’s account.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lena Agee, Director of Food Services Department, at 310 318-7345 ext. 5031.
