How to Pay for Your Child's Meals
Families prepay for school meals using one of three methods; using our online payment system, sending a check or bringing cash to the Lunch Express office, 2130 Pinehurst Dr.

• Paying online
Lunch Express uses a website called myschoolbucks.com for parents to manage their student account(s). You may pay for meals, check account balances, set a low balance email alert and view transactions from the previous 90 days.
• Accessing Your Account
To access your student account(s), you will need each student's district ID number. This will be the number they use to access school computer and library services throughout their years with the district. Please contact Mary Spurgat at 829-2343 (email@example.com) if you need assistance with your student(s) ID Number.
• Making Deposits Online
Parents can choose to make a credit or debit card deposit in their student account. A $1.95 convenience fee for each complete deposit is paid by the user. Lunch Express does not receive any part of this fee. It is for the convenience of online account management. If you have multiple students within the district, we recommend one deposit for all individual student accounts for $1.95. The payment will post to students account almost immediately.
* Making Deposits in Person
Parents can deposit cash or checks made out to Lunch Express at the Lunch Express Office located at the District Operations Center or any of the schools secure drop boxes. Cash payments are recommended only at the Lunch Express office to provide you with a receipt of the transaction. Please indicate students' first names in the memo section of your check or first and last name if their last name is different. Unless otherwise indicated, the DOC will split the amount evenly among each child in the family.
