MySchoolBucks Increasing its Convenience Fee as of December 11

 As of December 11, 2017, MySchoolBucks is increasing its convenience fee that parents pay from $1.95 per payment to $2.49 per payment. This fee increase is the result of an increase in the card scheme fee. You should receive official notice regarding the increase in an email from MySchoolBucks on November 27.

If you have questions about the fee, please contact them at 855-832-5226 or You can read the letter the district received from MySchoolBucks explaining this increase here.

 Pay for Meals with Cash or Check

If you would like to pay for your child's meals with cash or check, you can send your child in with the payment and he/she can give it to the cashier in the cafeteria. The payment will be deposited into your child's account, which you can track on MySchoolBucks. Please make your check out to West Genesee Food Service.

 If you would like to pay in person, you may do so at the Food Service office, located in West Genesee High School at 5201 West Genesee Street, Camillus, NY. The department is open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Allergies and Dietary Restrictions Your child's safety is important to us. To ensure that The West Genesee Food Service Department is aware of your childs particular dietary restrictions, such as allergies or diabetes, it is necessary for the parent or guardian of the child to submit a doctor's note to the school nurse every year.

You need to give permission to the nurse to release the information to the Food Service Department. This is to comply with the HIPAA Privacy Rule.  Please send in a parent letter and documentation from a medical authority stating the foods that are potentially dangerous or life threatening.

If your child is lactose intolerant, a signed medical note from your physician (required by the state) must be on file in order for an alternative drink to be offered in place of milk. This must be a medical condition, not a preference and does not apply to á la carte food sales.

Food Services Information

Please click the link to the right to download the monthly Lunch Menus or Free and Reduced Lunch Files. These documents are in PDF format. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them.  


The website provides parents the ability to view your child's account balance.

From that site you will create your account and add money to your child's school meal account. All you need is your child's name, student ID number and school ZIP code. The student ID number is not the same as your child's PIN number that they use in the cafeteria. The number you need is found (at the secondary level) on their schedule and report card.  Please contact your child's school for a student ID number.

At the elementary level, if they need their id number, they need to get that from their school office.

There is not a service charge for deposits made directly at your child's school building.
