Charging School Meals

On occasion, students may forget to bring meal money to school.  To ensure that students do not go hungry, but to also promote responsible student behavior and minimize the fiscal burden on the district, the following guidelines apply:

- Only complete meals on the menu may be charged.
- No snacks may be charged.

This Board of Education policy applies to all paying students whether they are paying full-price or reduced price.

Paying For School Meals

PRSD uses MySchoolBucks, a computerized Point of Sale (POS) system, for parents to pay for lunches in our cafeterias.  Every student has a personal meal account based on their current student ID number. Parents may deposit money into their child’s account through the online payment system MySchoolBucks or by sending in cash/check with their child to school. Monies paid into the student account can only be used for the purchase of regular meals and other items available in the cafeteria.  Children of families who opted out of this program can continue to use cash for their purchases.  Please note that upon leaving the district, no refunds will be issued for accounts below $10.00. 

If you have any questions with your MySchoolBucks account, or if you are moving out of the district and are eligible for a refund, please contact Daniela DiToma at ditomad@pearlriver.org or 620-3833.
