Meal prices will stay the same for students next school year, but the district’s online meal payment vendor is changing.

“We’ve heard from parents who were having difficulty navigating the current program,” said WCS Food Services Director James Remete. “This switch will help make the payment process easier.”

Starting July 15, the district will use MySchoolBucks for its online meal payment system. This means parents will need to register for a new account using MySchoolBucks in order to pay for their child’s school meals online.

Because student funds are held on WCS servers, any remaining funds on the student’s account will carry over.

MySchoolBucks will allow 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 will also be able to view past purchases, check balances and set up an alert when the account’s balance is low.

To enroll, 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.

The meal prices for the 2019-20 school year are listed below.

Meal Price
Student Breakfast, All Grades $2
Student Lunch, All Grades $2.90
All Adult Meals $3.50
