 School Payment Solutions

Central Kitsap School District has a new online payment system for the breakfast and lunch program.


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.

 

Even if you had an account with our prior online payment system, you will need to establish a new account with My School Bucks.  The account balances from the old system will automatically transfer to the new system. 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. The convenience fee is $2.50 per deposit transaction. Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the $2.50 fee once per deposit transaction. Central Kitsap School District will not profit from the use of this site.

We are very excited to offer this service and are confident this system will benefit you, your child and our district. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service, you may continue to make advance payments via check, which 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.

If you have any questions about My School Bucks, please feel free to contact Food Services at (360) 662-1090.

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.schoolpaymentsolutions.com/Register . 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.

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.
