PrePayment

Pre-Payment Options

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.

Rowland Unified School District, Nutrition Services department, is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy, and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into their child’s school meal account at any time.  This service also provides parents the ability to view their child’s account balance through a web site called www.MySchoolBucks.com.  By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, the lunch lines move along faster so children have more time to eat.  

 

Parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s 30-day eating history report.  This report will show the dates and times that their child purchased a breakfast and/or lunch within the past thirty days.

To access these services:
  1. Go to www.MySchoolBucks.com.  From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account.  All you need is your child’s name, 10-digit student ID number, and school ZIP code.
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 an existing PayPal account or with a major credit or debit card.
  • In order to use the online prepayment service, a small convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees. The convenience fee is $2.49 per deposit transaction. If more than $40.00 is deposited into a student's account, the account will be credited with one bonus meal.  Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $2.49 fee once per deposit transaction.  Rowland Unified School District will not profit from the use of this site.  
If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact Nutrition Services at (626) 854-8315.
