SCHOOL PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The School District of South Milwaukee Nutrition Services are self-operated and participates in the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs.  We provide quality, nutritious, and well-balanced meals for our students.  In addition to the regular meal program, a la carte foods are also available at the Middle School and High School cafeterias.

FREE & REDUCED SERVICES

 Student Meal Accounts

Students are provided a school ID that is used as a debit card for Lunch & Breakfast payments.  For easy online deposits, parents/guardians are encouraged to set up an account at MySchoolBucks.com.  (You will need your student’s ID #).  MySchoolBucks provides you with a convenient resource to deposit funds, view your students' purchases, track account balances, set up low balance reminders, and schedule payments.  There is a $1.95 fee for this service but students earn a bonus meal for each deposit of $30 or more which more than covers the convenience fee.  Funds are available almost immediately but parents should allow 1-2 hours for system updates.

Check & cash payments, with a completed deposit slip, may also be sent to school with your student. Deposit slips are available at all schools and under Quick Links on this page. Envelopes should be clearly marked “Lunch Money”.  Checks and Money Orders should be made payable to the School District of South Milwaukee and can be sent to your student's school via the student, parent walk in, or U.S. Postal Service. Parents may write one check for all of their students, no matter what school they attend in the district; this type of payment can be processed at any school and must clearly state how much is to be directed to each student's account. Funds will be available the same day at that school if the deposit is received prior to 9:00 a.m. Deposits for other school sites will be available the next day. Please allow 5 days for account deposit for any payments sent via U.S. Postal Service. High School & Middle School students can pay the food service cashier directly at the time of service, if they wish. Cashiers make every effort to notify students of low balances.  Notices are sent home with elementary age students.  Middle School & High School students are reminded at the point of sale and are responsible for communicating with their parent/guardian. 

There is NO charging of meals.

YEAR END BALANCES will be carried over into the next school year, unless the child is graduating. If your student withdraws from the School District of South Milwaukee, you may request a refund of the balance or a transfer of funds to the account of a younger sibling.  Transfers and refunds for graduating students are processed automatically after the close of lunch on the last day of school.  No action is required except for special circumstances.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for refunds. Refunds are mailed to the most recent address on file.  Please notify Food Service of your student's of address changes!
