What is a Nutrikids Account?
All students attending Pelham schools have an account in Nutrikids which allows them to charge their meal and a la carte item purchases. The account is linked to their Pelham Schools Student ID number.
What is My School Bucks and how do I fund the account?
www.MySchoolBucks.com is a payment website which interacts with the Nutrikids point of sale system. On the site, parents fund their student’s account and view purchase transactions. Alternatively, send in a check made payable to PUFSD Cafeteria Fund.
What happens if my student’s balance is negative?
When a student attains a negative balance, the Whitsons’ staff will notify the parent, via email, phone call, or account statement, to request deposit of funds to bring the account current.
Students will be provided an emergency meal, for which they will be charged. However, the student will no longer be able to charge a la carte items until the account has sufficient funds.
Will my student be denied a meal if their account balance is negative?
All students should have access to nutritious meals each school day and a student with unpaid meal charges will not be shamed or treated differently than a student with a positive account balance. Students with unpaid meal charges will receive an emergency meal for which they will be charged. Cafeteria staff will deal directly with parents regarding unpaid meal charges. Negative balances are expected to be paid promptly.
Can I transfer funds among my children?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an account transfer. Please provide the students’ names and grades.
What happens to account balances at the end of the school year?
Account balances carry forward to the next school year. The Whitsons’ staff will notify parents of a negative balance. Negative balances are expected to be paid in full.
What if my student has an account balance remaining when they graduate or withdraw from the District?
Remaining account balances may be transferred to siblings or refunded to the parent. Written refund and transfer requests MUST be made within one school year of graduation or withdrawal. Please email email@example.com to request a refund or transfer.
