You must have your child's student ID number in order to set up an account. Other than a $ 1.95 transaction fee that is charged when a credit card deposit made, all other My School Bucks services are cost free.We have placed a vending machine at the athletic field house to give the middle school and high school students who are on campus for extended periods of time another source for nourishment during the day. The machine contains chocolate milk and cottage cheese to promote muscle recovery and pickle juice to alleviate muscle cramps. In addition, it contains other high protein snacks such as beef jerky, nuts, yogurt, and string cheese to help get our students through a long day. You may set an account so your student can use the machine cash free. This account is completely separate from their meal account but is just as simple to use. Just click on the attached file Vending Instructions to view the directions and then follow the link http://vendaccount.com/ to get your student set up for cash free vending. He/she will love the added convenience.
