Pre-Payment Options

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.

Online Payments

Online Payments: MySchoolBucks-NEW-web

Online payments are a simple, safe and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments. There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment. To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.


Send Check or Cash

You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student's name, their ID #, their teacher's name, the $ amount and the check #. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashier(s) or school office.
