Meal payments

In an effort to limit contact between individuals, Food Services is asking parents to:

  1. Send checks or cash in an envelope for their child’s meal account; OR
  2. Utilize the My School Bucks app for parents to deposit money into their child’s account. Learn more about My School Bucks
