Thanks to MySchoolBucks, parents of students in Mount Pleasant Independent School District schools now have the option of depositing funds directly into their child’s cafeteria account using an on-line payment service (adult employees of Mt. Pleasant ISD have this same option as well).
MySchoolBucks allows parents and staff alike to view 90 days of past purchases, account balances, deposit funds and receive low balance email alerts. If you choose, you may also set up an automatic draft from any account you may have to deposit funds into yours or your student’s lunch account on a periodic basis.
Heartland Payment Systems is a multinational ultra-secure payment processor that processes more than 11 million transactions a year. They are the 5th largest payment processor in the United States and 9th in the world.
Heartland Payment Systems requires a transaction fee of $1.95 per “swipe of the card” to cover bank fees. However, you may deposit funds to multiple accounts in the same transaction or “swipe”. To offset the fee, MPISD will provide one free meal for every $50 deposited into a student’s account. That means if you choose to deposit $50.00 into each of your three children’s lunch accounts in one transaction, each child would receive a free meal and you would be assessed one fee of $1.95.
