About the Service
Wakefield Public School uses MySchoolBucks.com, an online prepayment system and free monitoring of student purchases for food services.
How It Works
All cafeterias have computerized registers and each student has a personalized account. All students are assigned a 4-digit Student ID number which they can use to set up an account on MySchoolBucks.com and use it when they purchase items in the cafeteria. The number will stay the same for the entire time your child is in the Wakefield Public Schools as will the information on the account.
To add money to your child’s school lunch account, you may make an online payment on MySchoolBucks.com, pay by check, or pay with cash. Please review, with each of your children, your own "rules" regarding the use of school lunch account money for these purchases. If you need any assistance with your child's account, or their use of it, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Free/Reduced Price Meals
If your child has qualified for free or reduced price meals, this information is securely contained within the computerized registers and the meal will be processed just as it is for all other students. If your child is reduced, please follow the method above to pre-pay for your child's meal.
Please note that the system is OFF until we return in September. You will not be able to add a student or make payments until the system is turned ON after the summer maintenance. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are excited about feeding your child and we encourage you to contact us for any suggestions, questions or concerns at the School Nutrition Office at (781) 246-6440 Ext. 6947.
