The MySchoolBucks program will have an increase to the convenience fee that parents pay from $1.95 per payment to $2.49 per payment. This fee increase is the result of an increase in card scheme fees and will be effective as of December 11, 2017. 

Heartland School Solutions will notify all MySchoolBucks account holders of this change via email. If you have any questions please contact Heartland at (855) 832-5226 or at gives parents a fast, easy secure way to add money to their children's school meal accounts (using your Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit card or debit card; you may also use an e-check payment directly from your bank account), check their children's current school meal account balances, and monitor what items their children have been purchasing at school.

The Food Service Program uses a computerized Point of Service system. Each student in the district has been entered into the system and assigned a unique identification number. Money may also be placed into a student's account in advance and as the student purchases ala carte items their account will be debited. The computerized system protects the identity of students receiving free or reduced price meal benefits as their meals are processed just as it is for all other students.
