After March 1st students can still pay online with www.myschoolbucks.com but the price will be $150. At this point, they can no longer pay Ms. Mack. They will be able to pay by check or cash to Wendy Alexander in Finance, but only before or after school. After May 1st the only way students will be able to pay is by cash for $150 to Wendy Alexander in Finance. If students have free or reduced lunch please ask your student to speak with their administrator.
