Food City School Bucks

Atkins Elementary School is participating in the "Food City School Bucks" program. The Food City School Bucks Program runs from August to May 2016.

Each year you have to sign up for that school year's program, so please sign up to credit Atkins Elementary with your purchases. Thank You.

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.
