With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, Baldwinsville Central School District’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called MySchoolbucks.com. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends. Lunch prices for the 2017-2018 school year are $2.75 for elementary students (K-5) and $3.00 for middle (6-7) and junior high students (8-9). High school lunch is $3.25. Breakfast for K-7 is $2.00, and for Baker High School (10-12) it is $2.50.
Also, parents have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and/or lunch within the past thirty days.
To access these services:
Things to know:
- Simply go to the district website at www.bville.org
- Click on the Food Services link
- Click on MySchoolbucks.com link. From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number (610……or 601…….found on your student’s schedule) and school.
♦ If you have more than one child in the District, you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.
♦ 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 $2.49 per deposit transaction. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $2.49 fee once per deposit transaction. The Baldwinsville Central School District will not profit from the use of this site.
We are very excited to offer these services, and are confident this system will benefit you, your child and the District. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service, you may continue to make advance payments via cash or a good check, which should be made payable to Baldwinsville Food Service. Please write your child’s full name on the check.
If you have any questions about these services, please feel free to contact my office at 315-638-6063
