Thanks to Utility Trailer Manufacturing

Utility Trailer Manufacturing employees presenting Mr. Roberts with a check.

The employees of the Utility Trailer Manufacturing Plant in Atkins, VA, decided to share their good fortune with the county and area schools. They decided instead of having a performance based meal on the 4th week, to donate the value of the plant wide meal to charitable causes. So, each month over 1,100 employees decided to assist with two local causes: Public Schools and Senior Citizens. This month Atkins Elementary recieved these donations. AES sends a big "Thank You" to Utility Trailer Manufacturing employees!!

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.
