The Liverpool Central School District Food Service Department uses the mySchoolBucks Point of Sale system in building cafeterias (this system replaces MyNutrikids).
LCSD parents now have three ways to pay for their child(ren)'s lunch and a la carte items:
- Prepay online using a credit or debit card
- Prepay by cash or check made out to "Liverpool Central School District." Money should be placed in an envelope labeled with your child's name and "lunch money" written on it.
- Pay for lunch and/or a la carte items with cash or check at the time of purchase
The mySchoolBucks system gives each student a debit “account” and personal identification number (PIN). Once parents deposit money in the account, students can purchase lunch and a la carte items from the cafeteria, and the money will be deducted from the account.
LCSD parents and guardians can use mySchoolBucks' secure online prepayment service to add money to their child(ren)'s school meal accounts, as well as review and print a history report of all transactions for breakfast (free for all students K - 12) or lunch within the last 90 days (parents who do not wish to use the online service can contact the Food Service Department directly for that information).
Things to know about the online system:
- If you have more than one child in the district you can handle all online pre-payments from the same online account.
- Payments may be made with a major credit or debit card (VISA, MasterCard and Discover) or eCheck. Payments may be made at any time, and money deposited into a mySchoolBucks account will usually arrive by the next morning. Deposit confirmations will be sent directly to parent e-mail accounts..
- In order to use the online prepayment service, a convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees. The convenience fee is $1.95 per deposit transaction. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $1.95 fee once per deposit transaction. The Liverpool Central School District does not receive this convenience fee, and will not profit from the use of this site.
