  • PBIS Store Donations

    PBIS Donations Needed

    The PBIS store is about to reopen for the year. Students are allowed to use their PBIS points to purchase items from the PBIS Store. Any type of donations, mechanical pencils, candy, suckers, clothes, games, books, gently used purses, shirts etc. would be appreciated. Please donate anything that you think students would like to "purchase" with their PBIS points as a reward.  If you happen to be doing spring (fall) cleaning, and you are considering giving things to Goodwill, please check with the PBIS team to see if it something we can use for the PBIS Store.

    Donations can be dropped off in the front office.

  • My School Bucks

    NEW for 2018-19: FCPS has changed from the MyPaymentsPlus online software program to MySchoolBucks. Current meal account balances transfer for August's start of school. Families will receive instructions on how to set up an account with MySchoolBucks. Then you can:

    • Check cafeteria balances and purchases
    • Receive alerts on low balances in a child's account
    • Set up automatic payments

    Bank it: Deposits in any amount may be made to a student's personal account. While students still have the option of paying as they go through the line, advance payment will speed transactions and allow the lines to move more quickly. All students have personal accounts regardless of paying status.

    Charge it: Students are encouraged to pay in advance for food purchases. Any child who forgets or loses his money may charge a meal. A letter will be sent to notify the parent or guardian, who then is expected to pay in full. If a student's charges reach the amount equivalent of two lunches and two breakfasts, a nutritious snack of a plain cheese sandwich and a milk will be provided. If a child has food allergies, other provisions will be made.

    Questions: (859) 381-3846.
