Families are notified by the Child Nutrition Department by mail in a timely manner. If meals are charged before the day a child’s application is approved, parents must still pay for all meals charged before application approval date.

We highly recommend filling out the application online with MySchoolApps.

 Students with approved applications on file from the previous school year will receive the same free or reduced-price meal benefits for the first 30 days of school for processing for the current school year. After that, any family who has not submitted a new application will have meal benefits terminated. 







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 [email protected].
