All meals and a la carte items are reasonably priced to encourage participation while maintaining a self-supporting operation.
Please take advantage of the options to prepay your student's meal accounts. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and gives students more time to eat, relax, and play. It also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or worry that it might get lost, stolen or used for other things other than lunch.
Student Account Refunds
Refunds & Transfers: All student balances automatically roll over to the next school year and new grade and/school, as long as your child remains in any Prince William County Public School. If relocating or graduating from our district, please click the “Refund Request” to have your student’s balance refunded.
If you are requesting a refund, please remove any SmartPay option you may have set up while using MySchoolBucks.com, to avoid any further charges to your credit card. Refunds are processed in the form of a check and typically take 3 to 5 weeks to process and arrive in the mail (additional time may be required due to volume at the beginning and end of each school year).
Transferring of account balances to another student's account can also be done through the “Refund Request” link. Please provide the student’s name, student ID # (if available), name of school student attends, and student's date of birth to receive funds.
