Parents can enter payments online as well as track your child's specific cafeteria purchases each day at My School Bucks. Another feature we LOVE, is that this system offers an option where parents are sent a text notification when their child's account balance reaches a low level. That amount is set by the parent.

Tips on helping children memorize a new lunch number.
 
The student ID number is their 5 digit Skyward ID, including leading zeros. Parents are encouraged to practice the number at home with younger children.  This will help teachers and our cafeteria staff get the lunch lines moving much more quickly.
