Online Prepayments: MySchoolBucks

Red Jacket Food Service Department provides 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 & receive low balance alerts…. all for FREE through a website called Funds can be added weekly, monthly, or when the balance runs low, (Simply choose the “Setup a Payment Schedule” option during the checkout). 


Things to know:

  • If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.
  • Payments may be made through a major credit, debit card or with an electronic check.  
  • In order to use the online prepayment service, a convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees. The convenience fee of $2.49-2.75 per deposit transaction. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the fee once per deposit transaction.
By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster and your child has more time to eat and be with friends. Also, parents will 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 an item within the past thirty days.

Your participation in this service is voluntary and between you and myschoolbucks. Red Jacket School District does not receive any financial benefit from your participation in this service and will not profit from the use of this site.
We are confident these services will benefit you, your child and our District. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service you may continue to make advance payments via check, which should be made payable to the Red Jacket CSD Lunch Fund. 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 585-289-2150 x2507.

UPDATE- Please Read
MySchoolBucks Message
Due to rising payment processing interchange fees and continued increases 
in operational costs, we’re updating the MySchoolBucks program fee that 
parents and guardians pay at checkout to $3.25 for all cafeteria credit/debit 
card prepayments beginning on March 7th. If your district accepts e-checks, 
the program fee for electronic check payments will increase to $2.75 per 
meal payment on the same date. This adjustment to our program fee for 
school meals is necessary to continue providing you and your families with 
the best and most secure online payment experience, while continuing to 
maintain the highest levels of data privacy.
The program fee is designed to cover the costs of providing the optional 
MSB services and includes a variety of items, including payment processing 
costs, live parent and school support, compliance and information security 
requirements, as well as the software used to manage meal payments.
 We recognize that fee updates during the school year can be disruptive, but 
we can no longer absorb these cost increases without negatively affecting 
the service we provide. Our intent for increasing our program fee is to be less impactful to your families than a one-time fee.
If you have any questions, please contact  MySchoolBucks Admin 
Support team at 800.803.6755.
