New School Fee Payment System IMAGE

Dear Families, 
JTHS has a new system for paying school fees. This is the same system that parents/guardians use to pay for their student’s cafeteria meals as cash is not accepted in the cafeteria.   

The MySchoolBucks cafeteria account has expanded to allow parents/guardians to view and pay student fees through one account. With MySchoolBucks, you’ll be able to quickly make cafeteria deposits, browse school items, receive notification when fees are due, and make payments from anywhere.  
How to Use MySchoolBucks 

  1. Go to or download the mobile app MSB Parent, USA (IOS or Android) 

  1. If you have not already done so, create your free parent/guardian account and add your student(s) using their school name/student ID.   

  2. Add school items or invoices to your cart 

  3. Check out using your credit/debit card or electronic check 

Previous Year(s) Fees & 2022-2023 Fees 
When you log on to the system, you will see fees owed for the previous school year and for this school year. The Instructional Materials Fee will be added to accounts next week. Please note that if your student has fees from past school years, the fees are not itemized. Parents/guardians will receive an itemized notice by mail that specifies what each fee is for. If you have questions, contact the Textbook Center.

Online Meal Application/Fee Waiver 
The online meal and fee waiver application portal for the 2022-23 school year is now open. Families that are not directly certified for free meals/fee waiver through an eligible program (SNAP, TANF, Medicaid, Foster Child, Migrant) can complete the online application to see if their child qualifies for free/reduced meals and the student fee waiver. Students must qualify each school year for free/reduced meals and the fee waiver. Submit your online application HERE.

We thank you in advance for your patience as transition to this new system.
