SBCS' Food Service Department is excited to provide you with a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks®.  This website allows you to deposit money directly into your student's school meal account and view balance/purchase information on a rolling ninety day basis.  By having money in your student's account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find that the lunch lines move along much faster.


This new service will be available starting January 5, 2015.

To access this service:

1.     Click this link: mySchoolBucks

2.    From this website you can create your account and deposit money.  All you need is your name, school, and staff ID number.  The instructions listed on the back of this page will guide you through the process. 


Things to know:

Ø If you already have an account for your child’s meal account in this school district you can add your own meal account to the same mySchoolBucks account.

Ø If you have more than one child in the district you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account. 

Ø Payments may be made with a Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit or debit card.  You may also make a payment using an e-check.

Ø In order to use the online prepayment service, a small convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees.  The convenience fee is $2.00 per deposit transaction.  If you are placing money into multiple meal accounts you will only be assessed the $2.00 fee once per deposit transaction.  SBCS will not profit from the use of this site.  Please Note: You may fund up to $120 per child, but a family may pay for all of their children on a single transaction.


We are very excited to offer this new service and are confident this new system will benefit you and our District.  If you choose not to take advantage of the online payment service you may continue to make advance payments via check, which should be made payable to the South Buffalo Charter School.  Please remember to write your student's full name on the check. 

If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact the SBCS main office at 826-7213.
