The Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District’s Food Service Department provides parents with a secure, convenient and easy online prepayment service to deposit funds into a child’s meal account. This service provides parents the ability to view a child’s account balance through a website called MySchoolBucks.com.
Lunch lines move along much faster, giving children more time to eat and be with friends by having funds in the account prior to entering the cafeteria. Parents also have the ability to print out a copy of a child's eating history with all the dates and times a youngster has purchased breakfast or lunch within the past 90 days.
Families with more than one child in the school district can handle every online prepayment from a single account. Payments must be made through a credit/debit card or e-check.
Automatic low balance email notifications. Parents will be able to establish school meal balance amounts so if a child's account balance falls below an established amount, they will receive an email alert of the low balance. This feature provides more convenience to families to help manage a child's balance. Families can set different balances of notification for each child.
Online deposit convenience fee. MySchoolbucks.com convenience fee is a flat fee of $1.95. This convenience fee applies to deposits of all amounts. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $1.95 fee once per deposit transaction. This fee will be applied to all payment types (credit, debit, e-check, PayPal account).
In order to minimize any increase in the online meal account payment convenience fee, the Food Service Department suggests families to consider making larger and less frequent prepayments.
NOTE: Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District does not profit from the use of MySchoolBucks. Any fees go directly to the service provider, not to Midlakes schools. Families choosing other forms of prepayments may make advance payments with cash or check made payable to the Phelps-Clifton Springs Lunch Fund with no additional charge. Please write the child's full name on any checks.
