Purchasing School Meals

  • Each student has a personal debit account linked to their PPS student identification (ID) number. A student’s identification number can be found on their fall registration form. Students enter their ID number to purchase a meal. A transaction report can be printed for student’s account.

    It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to PREPAY for school meals so lunch money is always available. There are three prepayment options

    • Enroll in the online prepayment service MySchoolBucks (for more information, click here).
    • Bring a check made payable to Portland Public Schools to the cafeteria. Write your student’s first and last name on the check.
    • Provide a cash prepayment to the cafeteria. Cash back is not provided, any remaining change will be added to a student’s account balance.
