To access these services:

1.     Simply go to the web site at .  From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account.  All you need is your child’s name, student ID number and school ZIP code.  The instructions listed below will guide you through the easy online account set up process.  For student ID number’s please call April Buckley at (603)-332-0757 X *2130 

Things to know:

Ø       If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account. 

Ø       Payments may be made through an existing PayPal account or with a major credit or debit card.

In order to use the online prepayment service, a small convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees.  The convenience fee is $1.95 per deposit transaction.  Parents placing money into multiple meal accounts at one sitting will only be assessed the $1.95 fee once per deposit transaction.  Rochester Public Schools and Chartwells do not profit from the use of this site.  

Ø        A recommendation would be to deposit more money less often to avoid the $1.95 fee assessed at each deposit

What features are free?
If you choose not to take advantage of the on-line prepayment service you can still view account balances and track student purchases through your free MySchoolBucks account.   To add funds without paying the convenience fee, make advance payments via cash or check (payable to the Rochester School Lunch Program). 

Using Cash and Checks:
You may still send in cash or check to be placed on your child(ren)'s account.  We  encourage  you to consider using a check or MySchoolBucks to prevent loss or theft.

Please write your child's ID number on the memo line of the check to help ensure it is credited to the proper account.

If checks are returned to the School District from the bank with insufficient funds, you will need a bank money order for the original check amount  including a $25.00 returned check fee and your account will be moved to cash only.

Note: All negative or positive balances will roll over to the next month.
