Online prepayment for school lunches is handled by MySchoolBucks.com
As the district's priority is the health and safety of all students and staff, we highly recommend utilizing the online payment system for a contactless transaction to avoid the handling and exchange of cash.
Please note...My School Bucks uploads payment information to the register system at 6am, 10am and 5pm daily. Funds needed for lunch must be submitted prior to 10am that morning.
Negative & Positive Balances
All negative and positive balances in student accounts follow them within the Wachusett School District.
IOUs must be paid at the next meal period.
As a courtesy, we allow two meal IOUs. We will remind your child at the cashier station to bring in money the next day, a phone call reminder will be made, an IOU letter will be sent home. Every effort to collect unpaid funds will be made. We currently send Negative Balance reminder emails 2x per week to all student accounts.
If you would like a refund of any positive balances call the Supervisor of School Nutrition Services at 508-829-1670 x278 or click here for a refund request document.
Mail the document to:
Supervisor of School Nutrition
1745 Main St. Jefferson, MA 01522.

End of year Lunch Account Balance Policy
If your child will be still be enrolled in the Wachusett Regional District next year, and has a negative balance, the balance will transfer to the next year.
Of course, all negative balances must be paid in full by the close of the present school year. In accordance with the USDA, student accounts with outstanding IOU balances remaining at the end of the school year will be closed to use until paid in full.
No IOUs will be issued for lunch or milk after the first week of June.
If your child is graduating from WRHS or leaving the district:
All negative lunch balances must be paid before tickets and caps & gowns are handed out to the student for graduation.
If your child presently has a positive balance in their lunch account, the balance will stay on their account through the start of the following school year. There is no need to do anything unless you would like the balance returned. If that is the case, please complete and submit a Refund Request form to:
