A New Way to Pay for Student Meals and Services Online
We are excited to offer Pocantico Hills Families the opportunity to use MySchoolBucks®, an online payment service that provides a quick and easy way to add money to your children’s meal account using a credit/debit card or electronic check. The system is up and running and available for immediate use in the cafeteria and for After Care Program payments. We plan to use this for Camp payments as well. You will be able to view recent purchases, check balances, and set-up low balance alerts at no extra cost. Listed here is a summary of what the program offers and how to enroll. We hope you find this new service helpful.
Convenience - Available 24/7 on the web or through our mobile app for your smartphone
Efficiency - Make payments for all your students, even if they attend different schools within the district. Eliminate the need for your students to take money to school.
Control - Set low balance alerts, view account activity, recurring/automatic payments & more!
Flexibility - Make payments using credit/debit cards and electronic checks.
Security – MySchoolBucks adheres to the highest security standards, including PCI and CISP.
The New York State Education Department is requiring that school districts develop an AIS policy for the 2016/2017 school year. This policy must include a second measure and must be uniformly applied to all grade levels. Please see attached for more details.
The Pocantico Hills School staff believes that each student is a complex and unique person. We are committed to helping our children realize their complete personal potential – academic, creative, physical and emotional. We will ask the students to stretch themselves and help them to discover the rewards of working hard.
We will treat the students with respect and understanding and encourage them to be caring and contributing members of society, students who are thoughtful, honest, fair, kind and self-disciplined.
