PARKLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT
Offers On-Line Payment Service
The Parkland School District is pleased to announce a new payment service over the internet. Your child’s school now accepts payments for school meals through the mySchoolBucks.com online payment service.
www.mySchoolBucks.com offers a secure transaction gateway that accepts VISA® or MasterCard® as a means of adding money to your child’s meal account. Credit or debit cards can be used. Please note: Neither MySchoolBucks nor Parkland School District would ever contact a parent or guardian to request credit card information over the phone.
Here are a few reasons to register now and begin using mySchoolBucks.com:
- Safety – Virtually eliminates worries about your child carrying money to school.
- Convenience – Make payments when it’s convenient for you, from the comfort of your own home, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
- Control – If you are using mySchoolBucks, you will be able to view your child’s meal purchases at the school cafeteria. Also, you can set up an automatic email reminder to alert you when a payment is needed for your child’s account. For Subscribers or Members of mySchoolBucks, you can set up an automatic payment when a payment is needed for your child’s meal account or for any other items or accounts available on the mySchoolBucks site.
- Efficient – Make payments for all your children in one step, even though they may attend different schools in our district.
To get started, all you need is a computer, internet access, and an email account.
There is no fee to use the mySchoolBucks Service to setup an account and view your child’s meal purchases, balances, and to setup up automated email notices when your child’s meal account falls below a dollar amount you specify.
There is a $2.50 transaction fee if you are using mySchoolBucks Service to make an online payment.
If using the Service to pay for meals, the Service automatically deposits the money into the student’s meal account at school within one to two business days.
Refunds will be handled through the District Office using usual procedures.
