The following is a link to their home page: Click hereOptional On-line Payment SystemThe Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District uses “MySchoolBucks”, an optional online payment solution for student lunch purchases. If you would like to use this payment option for school lunches, please review the attached letter.
Existing Users:If you set up an account last year, all information has been transferred to the new year and your account is still active.
First Time Users:
If you have not used this optional payment system, and would like to use "MySchoolBucks" you will be required to set up an account using your child's 'Student Number,' which is a nine-digit number. First, log on to Infinite Campus parent portal to retrieve your child's nine-digit 'Student Number'. Click on "Today" and you will see your child's 'Student Number' to the right of his/her picture. The 'Student Number' is required for you to enroll in MySchoolBucks. Once you have your 'Student Number', please follow the instructions in the attached letter.
In addition, you will locate your child’s PIN by clicking on “More” on the left side of the screen and then "MySchoolBucks PIN" in the Parent Portal. The PIN is used when your child goes through the lunch line. The PIN number is not required to register on MySchoolBucks.
Please note, the district still accepts payment by check or daily cash purchases. "MySchoolBucks" is optional and you can use "MySchoolBucks" to view balance information or to see what your child is purchasing without using it to process payments. Please note, if you decide to use "MySchoolBucks" to process payments, there is a convenience fee of $2.49 per transaction. This fee covers payments up to $120 per occurrence.Availability of Free Summer Meals for ChildrenPlease be aware there are several resources that provide children with free summer meals.For more information and locations of these meals please contact:
