My School Bucks
Parents can use our online payment system, My School Bucks, to pre-pay for their child's meal account, to view their child's meal account balance, and to sign up for e-mail reminders for when their child's meal account is getting low on funds.
When using the online payment system you will need is your child's name, student ID number and school ZIP code. If you have more than one child in the district, you can handle all online pre-payments from the same online account. In order to use the online pre-payment 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 will only be assessed the $1.95 fee once per deposit transaction. If you have any questions or need assistance with the online system, please call the Child Nutrition office at 479-498-8836 and we will be happy to assist you.
Parents can also make advance payments by sending cash or a check to your child's school or to the child nutrition office located at 220 West 10th Street. Please make checks payable to the Russellville School District Child Nutrition. When writing a check, please write your child's name on the memo line of the check.
