Can I pay for my child’s lunch online?
Money can be added to your child’s account at any time by sending cash or a check made out to “NBISD Food Service Program” in an envelope. Your child should give this envelope to the lunch cashier before school.
Remember, the envelope should be clearly marked “Lunch Program” with the child’s name, amount, teacher’s room, and parent contact information in the event of any questions. If the payment is for more than one student in the same campus, indicate how the money should be split (for example, Johnny = $10.00 and Sally=$15.00).
Payment can be made in any amount to best suit a family’s budget. We cannot split payments for siblings or students that attend different campuses.
Payment can also be made online at www.myschoolbucks.com. More information is available on our Web site under “Parents”. Your child can also pay on a daily basis.
How can I find out what my balance is in my child’s account and his or her
The easiest way is to create an account with myschoolbucks.com. Your child’s
purchase history is available one day after the account has been created This site will even enable you set “low balance reminders” that will generate an email to you when your child’s account falls below your preset amount. Or you can contact the Child Nutrition office at 830-627-6743 or your child’s specific campus cafeteria.
What happens if my child forgets his or her lunch?
If your son or daughter happens to forget their lunch from home, they may
choose from the meal plan and you will subsequently be charged.
My family qualified for free/reduced-priced meals last year. Do I need to do
anything for this school year?
Yes, every year a new application needs to be completed. Students are grandfathered in from last year for the first 30 calendar days of the school year. To avoid disruption in your child’s status, a new application must be received by the Child Nutrition office by 10/8/2019. For more information please visit our Free/Reduced Meal Program page.
