Troubleshooting Tip
If you are trying to add funds to your child's account for the first time and receive this message:
   Your district is currently not taking payments at this time   
Chances are you have picked the wrong school district or you have had an account previously with MySchoolBucks in another school district.
If so, remove the child from the prior district and ensure you choose Loudoun County Public Schools.   
It is the other district that is not taking payments. 
Payments are downloaded 5:15 am, 6:00 am - 10:30 am every 15 minutes, 2:40 pm, 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm every hour.   Balance updates upload 5:15 am, 9:30 am, 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm every hour.   Sales Journals uploads 7:35 pm.
Please do not wait until the last minute.  During peak times or network hiccup, a payment can be delayed for 1-2 days.  

School Nutrition staff are no longer permitted, by law, to remind students of their account balances at the cash register.  This provision was enacted to protect students with the inability to pay from being identified to their peers in the cafeteria line.

Parents are reminded that you are responsible for monitoring and ensuring that funds are available to purchase meals and/or snacks.  It is recommended that parents sign up for MySchoolBucks.  Monitoring student accounts is free and access will enable parents to manage their child’s account to avoid a low or negative balance.
