School Lunch Program
Welcome to the Starpoint Central School District School Lunch Information Page
The Starpoint Central School District is proud to announce the implementation of an on-line payment system for the school lunch program. You will now be able to electronically add funds to your child's lunch account eliminating the need to send in money with your child. You will also be able to set up reminders and automatic payments for all your children.
Enrollment is easy!
1. Go to www.mySchoolBucks.com and register for a free account. A confirmation email will be sent to the address you provide; click on link included in the email to activate your account.
2. Activate your account and begin adding your students. You will need their school name and student ID which will be mailed to you in late August 2014.
3. Add funds* to your students’ accounts with your Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, debit card, or electronic check.
*A convenience fee of $1.95 will apply to each payment that you make. If you have multiple children within the District, and you set up one payment that is split among your children, you will only be charged $1.95. You will have the opportunity to review any fees (and cancel if you choose) before you are charged. Money deposited into mySchoolBucks® generally appears in your childs account within 12-24 hours.
PLEASE NOTE: As of December 11, 2017, Heartland School Solutions will be raising their convenience fee to $2.49 per payment. This is the first time that the convenience fee has been increased in sixteen years. If you have any questions on the increased fee, please contact Heartland Solutions at 1-855-832-5226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
