Online Payment System:
With the online payment system, parents can monitor their children's cafeteria balances, pay with credit cards, debit cards, or electronic checks, schedule recurring payments, and set up low balance email reminders. Parents need only sign up for a free account to get started. Please contact David Carter, if you have questions or wish to check your child's balance without using MySchoolBucks.

If you do not wish to use MySchoolBucks you may send cash or check to the school's cafeteria director, Kim Reyes. If you have questions about your child's account balance during the school year, contact Ms. Reyes at 830-966-1926 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All refunds will be provided by check from the Business Office after a parent/guardian submits a written request to Kathie Burns, Business Manager. Withdrawn students' refunds not requested by the end of the current school year will be transferred to the district's general fund.

For students continuing enrollment next year, remaining balances will be rolled over into the new school year if a refund is not requested.
BALANCES OWED AT END OF YEAR:
