What happens to my account information in MySchoolBucks?
Both positive and negative balances in myschoolbucks.com and will transfer to our new system. The funds that were in your student’s account will be available for use on the first day of school and can also be applied towards virtual meal bundles. If your student owes money on his/her account, we can take that payment at any time and you may arrange a payment plan with the Student Nutrition department.
I have additional questions about my student's cafeteria account?
If you have questions regarding a student's cafeteria account (transferring or obtaining unused funds from account balances, application status, purchase history, obtaining ID or PIN, enrollment, etc.), please be ready to provide all names, schools and IDs along with your questions to Student Nutrition at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-299-6040.
