Parents/guardians must pre-pay for their student to be eligible to purchase lunch. There are two payment options:
Payment by Check or Cash
Cash and checks should be submitted to the school office, enclosed in an envelope labeled with the student's name, student's homeroom and "Cafeteria." Checks should be made payable to "Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy" with your student's name and grade written on the memo line.
Parents/guardians may pay for and monitor their student's lunch account through a secure online system, MySchoolBucks. This system may be used for one time payments and recurrent payments (autopay). There is a small fee for using this system.
To set up and use the MySchoolBucks system, go to www.myschoolbucks.com and follow the prompts. Parents/guardians will need to know their student's MySchoolBucks code to complete the initial sign-up. This code may obtained from the school office. Also, when selecting the school district, choose "Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown."
Online payment will likely post as "DIOCESE OF ALTOONA INTERNET" on your credit card or bank statement.
Insufficient Funds in Lunch Account
If a student's account has insufficient funds for payment, he/she will be given a meal. However, charges will continue to accrue, and the student may denied extra items until payment is made.
Senior Snack Bar
The Senior Snack Bar offers soda, candy and miscellaneous snacks. Proceeds from the snack bar support the senior class endeavors such as their end of year class trip and class gift.
