Free & Reduced Lunch Application
Parents FAQ Document
Dear Parent or Guardian,
We have some very important information that we believe will be very useful to you concerning student lunch accounts. The items involve the removal of fees associated with using MySchoolBucks and the ability to receive notifications for low balances on your student’s lunch account.
You will need to know your students state ID # located in the student Grade Book Portal to link their account in MYSCHOOLBUCKS.
Removal of fees: Starting February 1st, 2017, Dakota Valley School District will begin covering all costs associated with providing the MySchoolBucks service. This means that you will no longer be required to pay a transaction fee when adding funds to your student’s meal account.
Low balance notifications: As before, you will continue to have free access to the other services that MySchoolBucks offers, such as viewing student meal purchase histories and low balance notifications. We wanted to remind parents that by setting up an account, you can check the history of your student’s purchases. You also can set up your account so you receive a notification when your student’s account goes below the level you set as a parent for notification. For example, setting a notification of $20.00 will ensure that even if your student forgets to tell you, you will receive a notification that the account is below $20.00
We are happy to provide this service to our district parents, and we hope you continue to enjoy the convenience of MySchoolBucks to pay for student meals!
