Prices & Payment
Effective in 2018-19, FCPS changed from the MyPaymentsPlus online software program to MySchoolBucks. Previous meal account balances transfered at the start of school. With MySchoolBucks, families 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, thus reducing the chance that breakfast or lunch money will be forgotten, lost or stolen. 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. School staff members also are encouraged to open accounts for their food purchases.
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 la carte/single item(s) cannot be charged; they must be paid for in advance or at the time of purchase. When meal charges accrue, a letter will be sent to notify the parent or guardian, who then is expected to pay the charges 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. Note: Adults must pay for meals or a la carte item(s) in advance or at the time of purchase. There are no provisions for adult charges.
Check-writing policy: FCPS requires the following information on all checks: full name, street address and home phone number. If a check is returned by the bank, it will automatically be forwarded to Envision for collection of what is owed, plus the $50 state-allowed collection fee. When needed, Envision may re-present the check to the bank electronically along with applicable collection fees.
Questions: (859) 381-3846.
Grades 6-12: $2.75
Note: Students who qualify for reduced-price meals will now eat at no cost. Their families will not be charged for the student’s meals because the reduced fee has been waived for this school year.
