Don't forget to register your Food City card with Oak Point Elementary School. You have to make sure your card is associated with the school each year. Food City School Bucks points really add up for our school! You can register your card online or with the cashier at a local Food City store.

Parent Pickup Procedure

Parents who pick up their children through the parent pick-up line in the afternoon must display an Oak Point hang tag with the child's or children's name(s) in dark ink. If you do not have a tag, please check out your child through the main office and ask for one. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe.

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.
