Depositing Money Into Accounts
Use this link to make a deposit MySchoolBucks.com. If sending in checks to pay for lunches, please send a separate check to each building your child(ren) attends, make checks payable to the Tonawanda City School District.
Starting May 16, 2016 - students will be allowed to charge meals only if funds are in their account.
From September - May: Please
note that students without money for their meals will be allowed to
charge food purchases to their account up to a limit of $5. Once
their account balance reflects a negative balance of $5, they will no
longer be able to charge food purchases. In this case, children are
provided with an alternate meal -- a sandwich and a drink -- so
that no child goes without eating.
know that there is no requirement for the District to provide a child
with food if they do not have money to pay for a meal - the District
follows this alternate meal practice based on a local decision made by
the Board of Education.
know in advance that if a child owes $5 or more on his/her account, a
regular full school breakfast or lunch will not be provided - the
alternate meal will be given in place of the regular meal. This is done
because the District does not receive Federal and State funding on
appreciate your cooperation in making sure your child's account balance
remains positive so that they are able to fully participate in the
District's Breakfast and Lunch programs.
FOR MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ONLY
A new cafeteria program, through SL-Tech, introduces a device that allows students to access meal accounts by using a sensor that identifies the child by the touch of his/her finger. The technology uses a scanner to generate an image of the ridges and valleys in the finger. This image is converted to a template which consists of minutiae points on a finger that are unique to an individual. It is not a fingerprint.
The scan image/ID match is pictured here.
When a student places his/her finger on the touchpad scanner, the system creates a numerical template based on the scan image, checks it against templates in the database and returns an ID match. The scan is not a fingerprint. There is no way to generate a fingerprint from a child's template.
Middle and High School students can still use their 9-digit student ID number or slide their ID card through the new device to pay for meals.
