We would like to thank you for using MySchoolBucks and hope you have enjoyed the convenience this payment service provides for you and your students. As the school year comes to a close, we wanted to let you know about some exciting changes that we’re working on this summer.
In August, MySchoolBucks will be updated with a new logo and a brand new design. This will make it even easier to manage your account and make school payments online. You’ll enjoy:
- Enhanced tablet and mobile phone experience
- Faster checkout
- More payment options
- Easier account management
All of your existing account information, including username/password, students, low balance emails, and automatic recurring payments will remain the same. Stay tuned for more details about this exciting MySchoolBucks update. If you have any questions please click here to email or call (855) 832-5226.
Nutrikids has changed their online account pre-payment system to mySchoolBucks, a convenient and secure online payment portal. Existing accounts created through MyNutrikids.com will be transitioned to mySchoolBucks automatically with all balances. Parents or Guardians with an existing account will receive an email notification regarding the change to mySchoolBucks. Going forward all new accounts will need to be created at on the MySchoolBucks website.
Nutrikids has changed to MySchoolBucks for the following reasons:
- Scheduled recurring payments
- Automatic deposits when your child's account balance runs low
- Extended purchase history for the past 90 days
- Low balance email notifications
- E-wallet to save credit card information for future use
- Mobile-friendly website
While MyNutrikids payments were processed through a third party vendor PayPal, MySchoolBucks is a single vendor that owns and operates the entire solution.
Things to know:
- You can have more than one child on an account.
- A small convenience fee of $1.95 will be added to the transaction.
- There is an account maximum of $120.00.
- If you choose not to take advantage of this online prepayment system you can continue to make payments to your student(s) account via check payable to Bedford School Lunch Program mailed to: Bedford School Lunch Program 97 McMahon Road Bedford, MA 01730. Please include your student's name on the memo line.
If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact my office at (781) 275-9129 or click here to email.
