      MySchoolBucks Information

        MySchoolBucks Logo

        Letter to Parent/Guardian with Additional Information about MySchoolBucks

        The MySchoolBucks website provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance.

        *NEW OnePay Membership feature on MySchoolBucks

        From that 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 student ID number is not the same as your child’s PIN number that they use in the cafeteria. The number you need is found (at the secondary level) on their schedule and report card.  Please contact your child’s school for a student ID number.

        At the elementary level, if they need their id number, they need to get that from their school office.

        If you have any questions about these services, please feel free to contact the Food Services Department at 315-487-4661. Click on the MySchoolBucks logo to access your MySchoolBucks account.

        Please be aware that MySchoolBucks is an independent entity that provides this service to West Genesee. MySchoolBucks collects a service charge for deposits made through their website.  Also, the maximum deposit for any one child is currently $120.00 online. We continue to work with MySchoolBucks in an effort to raise the maximum deposit amount allowed per transaction. There is not a service charge for deposits made directly at your child’s school building. 

         Vendor Allergen Information Now Available

        Your child’s safety is important to us. To ensure that The West Genesee Food Service Department is aware of your child’s particular dietary restrictions, such as allergies or diabetes, it is necessary for the parent or guardian of the child to submit a doctor’s note to the school nurse every year.

        You need to give permission to the nurse to release the information to the Food Service Department. This is to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule.  Please send in a parent letter and documentation from a medical authority stating the foods that are potentially dangerous or life threatening.

        If your child is lactose intolerant, a signed medical note from your physician (required by the state) must be on file in order for an alternative drink to be offered in place of milk. This must be a medical condition, not a preference and does not apply to á la carte food sales.
