Nutrikids is the company the School District of South Milwaukee contracts for online school meal payments and point of sale transactions. They are transitioning the online payment website from MyNutrikids.com to MySchoolBucks.com. This change will take place over the next several days.
Beginning Friday 12/7/12 the MyNutrikids.com website will be locked and parents will not be able to make online payments for 2 business days, while the accounts are being migrated to MySchoolBucks. If you currently use MyNutrikids to make lunch payments and your child is low on funds please send cash or check to school with your child during this time.
Once the transition is complete MyNutrikids.com users will be automatically redirected to www.myschoolbucks.com where payments can be made online. If you have a current account with MyNutrikids.com you will receive an introductory email with additional information about MySchoolBucks along with basic instructions on how to use the website.
PLEASE NOTE: Parents with an existing MyNutrikids.com account will continue to use the same username and password on mySchoolBucks.com. Children associated with their account will remain unchanged.
***Due to legal requirements, Nutrikids is unable to transfer automatic e-mail notifications. If you have previously setup low balance email alerts in MyNutrikids.com, you will need to set them up on MySchoolBucks.

The School District of South Milwaukee participates in the National School Lunch Program. A morning milk program for elementary school students is also offered. In addition to the regular meal program, ala carte foods are on hand at both the Middle and High Schools. A Nutrition Break program is currently available at all elementary schools. A Breakfast program is available at the Middle School and the High School.
Applications for families who may qualify for free or reduced price meals are available at each of the district’s schools and under the Quick Links located on the right-hand side of this page. Completed applications should be returned to the district, and will be evaluated based on the National School Lunch Program criteria. Parents/guardians will be notified whether the family qualifies for free or reduced price meals. Families may apply for meal benefits at any time during the school year. Familes may also re-apply if denied benefits, but experience a decrease in income or an increase in household size later in the school year.
SPECIAL NOTES: Parents may indicate whether their student is allowed to purchase ala carte items off their account by completing a deposit slip and submitting to the school. Deposit slips are available at all schools and under Quick Links on this page. Food allergies and food abstinences may also be indicated in this way. The automated system will recognize these notes and make the cashier aware as the student takes a meal.
YEAR END BALANCES will be carried over into the next school year, unless the child is graduating. If your child graduates or 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.

In order to receive the free or reduced price Nutrition Break/Breakfast, your student must take the full Nutrition Break meal/3 of the 4 breakfast items offered.
