New for the 2014/2015 school year, there is NO EXTRA FEE for making online payments/deposits for the School Breakfast and Lunch Program!
The Triton Regional School Lunch Program implemented computerized lunch registers as part of the Point Of Sale (POS) system. Each student has a unique ID number (which remains the same until graduation) and is used at the lunch-line registers when purchasing lunch. To help increase the efficiency of the lunch lines, we strongly encourage using the “Debit Account” to pay for your child’s meals. Payments can be made online at mySchoolBucks.com and the monies will automatically be deducted from the account every time the child’s ID number is entered at the register. Payments can also be made by check for weekly or monthly amounts. If the student is absent, the monies remain in the account until used. Any unused balances at the end of the year will automatically be transferred as beginning balances for the next school year. Special arrangements are made for students who do not have a lunch from home, cash or money on account.
*Children who qualify for reduced priced meals are required to prepay on a weekly or monthly basis.
If you have questions, please contact the Food Service Director at 978-465-2397 x1063 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Online payments are accepted for all Cafeteria Purchases as well as for student athletics and activities. You are still able to make payments for fees via a check, but these should be mailed or delivered directly to the district office, to the attention of the Business Office Clerk.
