Online Application for Free and Reduced Lunch

My School Bucks

You may prepay for school meals online with our “MySchoolBucks” program. To set up an account, simply go to HYPERLINK"http://www.myschoolbucks.com" www.myschoolbucks.com and follow the simple instructions. Full paid reimbursable lunches are $1.85, breakfast are $1.00 and reduced meals are $.25

Message System

Automated calls will be made every Tuesday and Friday evening for students whose cafeteria balance is low or negative. A low balance call will occur for full pay students when their accounts are below $5.00, reduced pay students when their accounts are below $1.00, and free students (who buy juice or a la carte items) when their accounts are below $2.00. All students with negative balances on account will receive an automated call. 

Meal Charging

Students will be allowed to charge three lunches in the event their account balance is insufficient or they do not have money. After this, families are expected to pay off the charges and put money on their child’s account. If your family is experiencing a financial hardship, please contact the District Office at (315) 376-9001 or send an email to apetzoldt@lowvilleacademy.org <mailto:apetzoldt@lowvilleacademy.org> to discuss a feasible payment plan and/or apply for the free and reduced lunch program.
