School Meals

Our mission is to provide our students with the nourishment they need for outstanding academic achievement and healthy lives.

Thank you for trusting MySchoolBucks as your online payment portal for cafeteria payments.

Due to rising payment processing interchange fees and continued increases in operational costs, we’re updating the MySchoolBucks program fee that parents and guardians pay at checkout to $3.25 for all cafeteria credit/debit card prepayments beginning on March 7th. This adjustment to our program fee for school meals is necessary to continue providing you and your families with the best and most secure online payment experience, while continuing to maintain the highest levels of data privacy.

Free Meals for 2023-2024 School Year

Sheboygan Area School District qualifies for the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the 2023-2024 school year. This means that all enrolled students can receive breakfast and lunch at no charge. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a free/reduced meal application.

As part of the online registration process, families were asked to complete a CEP Alternate Household Income form. Completing this form is important to maintain educational funding for our schools. In addition, this form determines eligibility to receive benefits for your child(ren), such as reduced program fees.

IMPORTANT: FOOD & SUPPLY CHAIN SHORTAGE

SASD is experiencing last-minute menu changes due to nationwide food & supply chain issues. Menus posted on our website may not reflect these changes and are subject to change at any time.

Please note we are not offering a "milk only" choice. Students who wish to participate in school meals will be offered a complete meal only.

The Sheboygan Area School District understands the importance of serving nutritious meals daily to our students. If meals are purchased through the school nutrition program, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep a positive account balance in the students account. The District uses a pre-payment system for meal accounts, and payment is to be made prior to consuming meals. In order to provide clarity and accountability surrounding the school nutrition program, the following policies regarding student meal account balances have been put in place:

Each day after the deposits have been made, a file is created of all families whose lunch account is at or below $5. A notice will be sent out through School Messenger to these families letting them know their balance and asking them to deposit money into their students account. To avoid the phone calls, parent/guardians should maintain an account balance greater than $5. A monthly file of all families whose lunch account balance is $20 or more in the negative will be sent to the Assistant Superintendent of Business and Operational Services. The Assistant Superintendent will take additional action to collect on these accounts.

No a la carte items may be purchased on account if there is a negative account balance. Students are allowed to pay with cash.

If a child transfers, moves or graduates from the Sheboygan Area School District and has a positive balance left in the meals account, parents/guardians have the following options:

* Funds will automatically be transferred to a sibling account.
* Funds may be refunded to the parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must request a refund in writing to the School Nutrition Department by June 15 of that current school year, and a refund will be sent to the address provided.
* Funds may be donated to an account to help other families. If there is no request for refund by June 15, and there is not a sibling in the district, any account balance amount of $10 or less will automatically be transferred to an account to help other families.

If a current student has positive funds in their meal account and currently does not use the account, a refund can be requested in writing to the School Nutrition Department any time during the school year.
