 School Payment Solutions


Central Kitsap School District offers a convenient way for parents to pay into their students breakfast and lunch accounts via an online payment system.

The system is called "My School Bucks" and is available now. There is no charge to establish an account, which allows you to view history and to review your student's account. A transaction fee of $2.50 still applies to online payments.


 To register and use the new system you will need the following:


  • School district name
  • School name
  • Student's birth date
  • Student's ID number (you can get this number from the school front office or off your student's report card)
  • A valid email address for your account


In order to complete registration, you are required to add one student to your account. However, once your account is active, you can login and add any number of additional students to your account.


Once you have completed registration, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you specified during registration. You MUST confirm your email address via the instructions in the email in order to activate your account and login for the first time.


If you are ready to begin, go to www.myschoolbucks.com and click the green "Sign up Today" button.


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. Payments made with a credit card can take up to 24 hours to show up in your child’s account. If you prepay using a debit card or e-check, the transaction can take up to a week before it is credited to your student’s account.
  • In order to use the online prepayment service, a small convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees.  Central Kitsap School District does not profit from the use of this site.

If you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service, you may continue to make advance payments at your students school. Checks should be made payable to Central Kitsap School District. Please write your child’s full name on the check.

If at any time you need to transfer money from one student account to another, please call the Food Services Office at (360) 662-1090. We will be happy to transfer that amount for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for lunches?

Food Service uses a computer system to maintain student accounts. You can put any amount into your student's account at any time. The appropriate amount will be deducted for each breakfast, lunch or ala cart item that they purchase. Students may also purchase any breakfast, lunch or ala cart item with cash. 


With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, Central Kitsap School District’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called School Payment Solutions. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends. 


Click this link or go to https://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, student ID number and school ZIP code.

When and how do I apply for free or reduced-price meals?

You can apply at any time during the school year. You may apply by one of the following methods. The quickest way to file and process or preferred method is (1) Click on this link or go to https://www.applyforlunch.com  or (2) Contact your school's office for a Free and Reduced application or (3) print the application by clicking here.

What if my child has food allergies?

The District Health Services Office has a form named, "Diet Order for Life Threatening Food Allergies." This form is available from your school nurse. The form is specific for foods to be omitted and the foods to be substituted. The food allergy must meet the USDA criteria of being a "Life Threatening" (anaphylactic) reaction.  The form must be signed by a licensed physician and returned to the school nurse or District Health Services.  We follow USDA guidelines for "Offer Versus Serve".  For most situations, substitutions for food allergies are not necessary since students may decline food items and still qualify for a subsidized meal. Refer to Meal pattern Chart.


Do students need to take a certain amount of food?

A qualified school lunch includes: Meat/Meat Alternative, Bread/Grain, Vegetable, Fruit and Milk. Students must choose at least 3 food items from three of the five food groups (1 of the food items must be 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable) in order to meet the new USDA requirements for a school lunch and to be eligible for federal subsidy.


If my child qualifies for a free or reduced lunch can they also get breakfast?

Yes. If your child qualifies for free lunch, he/she can also get a free breakfast. If your child qualifies for a reduced lunch, he/she can also get a free breakfast. 


Can my child purchase a second lunch?

Yes, however, only the first lunch is federally subsidized. If a student purchases a second lunch, they will be charged $3.50.


Can my child purchase an extra entree?

The cost of an additional entree  is $2.50.

USDA Guidelines

In a press release on January 25, 2012, First Lady Michelle Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack unveiled new standards for school meals that will result in healthier meals for kids across the nation. The new meal requirements will raise standards for the first time in more than fifteen years and improve the health and nutrition of nearly 32 million kids that participate in school meal programs every school day. The healthier meal requirements are a key component of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by the First Lady as part of her Let's Move! campaign and signed into law by President Obama.  To read the entire press release, please click here.

In addition, the following documents provide more information about the new guidelines.

Healthy Snack Guidelines

Smart Snacks Update


As the implementation of the Smart Snacks standards moves forward, below are some links to new guidance and resources.


  • USDA Memorandum SP 59-2014 Implementation of Smart Snacks in School:  State Agency Fundraiser Elections and Exemptions
    Please be advised that Washington state does not have a fundraiser exemption policy. Therefore, all food and beverages sold as fundraisers to students on campus, during the school day must meet the Smart Snacks standards. There are no limits for fundraisers when food and beverages meet the standards. Washington is one of 32 states across the country without a policy.
  • USDA Memorandum SP 63-2014 Smart Snacks Standards for Exempt Foods when Paired Together
    The Smart Snacks standards provide exemptions for certain foods that are nutrient dense, even if they do not meet all of the specific nutrient standards.  For example, peanut butter is a nutrient dense food but would not meet the Smart Snacks standards for total fat and saturated fat.  As a result, peanut butter is exempt from the total fat and saturated fat standards.  Similarly, when peanut butter and an apple are sold together, this paired snack retains the exemption for total fat and saturated fat.  Calorie and sodium standards must still be met.
  • Administrative Reviews
    Administrative Reviews beginning school year 2014-15 will include the Smart Snacks standards at the sites selected for review. Child Nutrition Services is required to review all areas of the school where competitive foods are sold. Product documentation for the competitive foods must also be available for review. You may visit the USDA website to view the Administrative Review guidance and forms.
  • Tools for Schools
    The USDA webpage, Tools for Schools, offers many resource materials to assist you in implementing the Smart Snacks standards.
  • Illinois Public Health Institute
    Five tips sheets are available to help schools implement the Smart Snacks standards and topics include finances, policies, and student engagement. 
  • Webinar: Strategies for Implementing Smart Snacks in School: Learning from 8 Districts' Successes in Controlling Junk Food and Maintaining Revenue
    This webinar took place on November 14, 2014.
  • Alliance for a Healthier Generation
    The Alliance for a Healthier Generation has made available the Smart Snacks calculator tool.  They also have excellent ideas for non-food fundraisers on their website. 


Wellness Statement

The Board recognizes that good nutrition contributes to student health and learning. Therefore, it is the policy of the Board to provide students access to nutritious food and information related to nutrition.
