    Check Your Child's Lunch Account Status Online–New Online Program My School Bucks

    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.

    3. We will try to include students who are left out.
    4. If we know that somebody is being bullied we will tell an adult.
