The district is continuing to use MySchoolBucks for online meal payments. MySchoolBucks allows parents to deposit funds into their child’s account using a debit/credit card or electronic check. There is a $2.49 depositing fee for online transactions. Parents are also able to view past purchases, check balances and set up an alert when the account’s balance is low. Money on a student’s account from the last school year will carry over.
For parents who need to enroll in online meal payments, visit the MySchoolBucks website or download the app and register for an account. Add students to the account using their school name and student ID. MySchoolBucks may also be accessed from the WCS Food Services page.
