Paying for Hot Lunches

My School Bucks** Hot lunches will be served free of charge for all students during the 2021-22 school year, so there is not need to set up a new account or add money to an existing account.

Thomas MacLaren School is participating with MySchoolBucks, a payment service where you can set up automatic payments, receive low balance alerts, add money using your credit card, and use their mobile app. This is the only way that we accept payment for hot lunches. We do not accept payment directly to the school.
