Dear Parent or Guardian,
The William Penn Public Schools Food Service Department recently set-up a pre-payment system that will allow parents/guardians the ability to monitor their child’s account and pre-pay for meals.
We are also excited to provide parents a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks. This website allows you to deposit money directly into your child’s school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past ninety days. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find that the lunch lines will move along much faster, which gives your child more time to eat and be with friends.
If you choose not to take advantage of the online payment service you may continue to make advance payments via check, which should be made payable to William Penn School District. Please remember to write your child’s full name on the check.
The mySchoolBucks Online Payment Service is available
To access this service:
1. Go to www.myschoolbucks.com
2. From this website you can create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, school, and student ID number.
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 with a Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit or debit card. You may also make a payment using an e-check.
*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 $2.00 per deposit transaction. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $2.00 fee once per deposit transaction. William Penn Public Schools will not profit from the use of this site. There is a limit of $120 per total transaction.
We are very excited to offer this new service and are confident that mySchoolBucks will benefit you, your child and our District. If you choose not to take advantage of the online payment service you may continue to make advance payments via check, which should be made payable to William Penn Public Schools. Please remember to write your child’s full name on the check.
If you have any questions about this new service, please feel free to contact my office at 610-534-4400 or firstname.lastname@example.org
