At Glen Crest Middle School, meals are provided by Quest Food Management Services.
Paying for lunch
New in 2020-21: Students will use their school IDs to pay for lunch, and families will be able to load and refresh accounts through the MySchoolBucks software. MySchoolBucks allows families to add funds by logging into PowerSchool or by downloading the MySchoolBucks app. Families will be able to monitor their student’s purchases, check balances, and receive low-balance alerts. More info
Parents can refresh balances and set up auto-refresh by using a credit card on the website or the app.
In order to use MySchoolBucks, parents will need to establish a PowerSchool account. Middle school parents already use PowerSchool to check their student’s grades. Once you log in, the PowerSchool homescreen will now include a MySchoolBucks button.
Elementary school students will need to create a PowerSchool account. The district mailed letters to all families with a personalized password needed to log on to Powerschool.
If you need assistance with your account, you can find helpful how-to videos and answers to commonly asked questions by visiting myschoolbucks.com. Or, you can contact MySchoolBucks directly by logging into your account to start an online chat or calling (855) 832-5226.
If you have questions or concerns about food service, please address them with your school principal.
