Pre-Payment Options

Please pay for student meals by cash or check the first week.  It takes at least 48 hours for the student record to be added to the My School Bucks website.  Should your child leave the Paulding County School District, please stop the auto-pay option to prevent re-occurring payments. Thank You.

Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.

Important message to parents about 

Setting up an account is EASY!  Make sure you have your child's student id number, the same number they enter in the cafeteria when eating meals everyday and their date of birth.  Please do not use any zeros in front of the student id number, for example use 11111, instead of 011111.


Prepayments (any amount) for your student's meals may be made online for a fee of $1.95 per each school transaction.  For example, should you have a student in Elementary, Middle and High School, your credit card will be charged $1.95 three times, once per each school location.  The transaction fee will be added to the total amount of money you allocate to your student's account.  If you have more than one child at the same school and are making prepayments on each child's account simultaneously, only one transaction fee $1.95 will be accessed.  Please keep in mind that it will take approximately one hour for your payment to post to your child's account.  When funding your child's account for the first time, it will take at least 24 hours before you can view a seven day account history of food your child has purchased.  For an account history of more than seven days, please contact the cafeteria manager at your child's school.
