Instructions for mySchoolBucks

Schoharie Central School’s Food Service Department provides a convenient and secure online meal payment service called mySchoolBucks. This website allows parents/guardians to deposit money directly into their child’s school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past 90 days.

Having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria moves our lunch lines along much faster, providing students with more time to eat and be with their friends.
