The School Board approved a five-cent increase on school lunches at their June 23, 2016 Board Meeting effective for the 2016-2017 school year. This increase was mandated by USDA to be in compliance with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
School Nutrition Services continues to provide its popular pre-payment service of MySchoolBucks.com. Using this program allows parents to pay and replenish their student’s account using a personal credit or debit card from home via a secure Internet site. Heartland School Solutions does charge parents a $1.90 handling fee for each prepayment.
NEW! MySchoolBucks.com now allows parents to check their child’s meal account balance free of charge, even if no other services are being used on this site.
