My School Bucks


My School Bucks is used alongside the cash register and sets up an online account for each student.

A Personal Identification Number (PIN) is assigned to each student. Students can access their account with their PIN number. 

Students are required to memorize their PIN number and will be required to enter their PIN at the cashier’s station when purchasing a meal or an ala-carte item. All purchases will be automatically deducted from the account balance.
