MySchoolBucks increases online transaction fee
Nov. 14, 2017: LaFayette Central School District parents and guardians who use the online payment system MySchoolBucks to manage their child’s meal accounts will soon see an increase in the vendor’s transaction fee.
Effective Dec. 11, the fee for electronically adding funds to a child’s meal account will increase to $2.49 per transaction. The $0.54 increase will help offset credit card processing fees, according to the vendor.
MySchoolBucks allows parents to securely prepay for student meals online, view student purchases, enable low-balance settings, and setup recurring payments so the system will automatically add money to the account when the balance reaches the threshold set. The district partners with the vendor to provide convenience for parents and does not manage or benefit from the program’s transaction fees.
Parents and guardians can still make cash or check payments directly to the district’s food service department. School cafeteria cashiers can provide balance information to students.
For questions about the fee increase, please contact MySchoolBucks by phone (855) 832-5226 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
