The North Smithfield School Department, in conjunction with Aramark Nutrition Services, HAS TRANSITION over to mySchoolBucks.com online pre-payment system for the North Smithfield breakfast and lunch programs. Moving forward, this program will not only allow parents to make secure payments to their children's lunch accounts, but will also offer may other benefits including increased accountability when dealing with the school lunch program. A brief overview of the mySchoolBucks.com features is provided below:
Safe and secure payments: mySchoolBucks.com allows parents to make payments to their children’s lunch account via credit card, debit card or your checking account (these payments will be assessed a $1.95 fee once per transaction). Payments can still be made via check or cash at the school. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PARENTS: Please put all cash or check prepayments in an envelope with your child's name and grade on the outside.
Increased Accountability: Whether parents choose to make payments through the online system or if they continue to prefer cash or check payment, the mySchoolBucks.com allows parents to see the balance of a child’s account at any time including all deposits and withdrawals – this essentially enables mySchoolBucks.com to act as a receipt system.
Account Monitoring: Setting up an account on mySchoolBucks.com is easy and free. Parents can use the site to view all account transactions of their students. Online payments are not required in order for a parent to set up and maintain a mySchoolBucks.com account.
Low Balance Alerts: mySchoolBucks.com is a great way to ensure that there is always money on a child’s account. By setting up a mySchoolBucks.com account, parents can choose to have “low balance reminders” sent by email once their children’s accounts reach a certain point. mySchoolBucks.com also has recurring payment options.
If you already have a MyNutrikids.com account, you will NOT need to create a new account with mySchoolBucks. Your existing login username and password will remain the same. Children that are associated with your account will also carry over to the new service.
