The Harrison Central School District has a long history of providing healthy, appetizing and affordable meals to students during the school day so they are prepared to perform to their maximum potential.
In addition to the traditional lunch, a variety of a la carte items, including sandwiches and salads, are available on a daily basis. A full range of breakfast items are offered at each school in the morning.
During the 2021-22 school year, additional funding from the federal government allowed schools nationwide to offer all students, regardless of their family’s income, free breakfast and lunch while at school.
Because that funding was discontinued as of June 2022, school districts must transition back to charging students for school meals and requiring the formal application process for students to participate in the National School Lunch Program, which is the federally assisted program that allows eligible students to receive free or reduced-price school meals.

MySchoolBucks Prepayment Program
The goal of the Harrison School District is to provide student access to nutritious and low-costing meals each school day and to ensure that a student whose parent/guardian has unpaid school meal fees is not shamed or treated differently than a student whose parent/guardian does not have unpaid meal fees.
The Harrison Central School District has partnered with "MySchoolBucks.com" to allow parents to:
View purchase history
Check account balances
Sign up for email notifications when balances get low.
These benefits are available regardless of whether payment is made electronically through their website or by check at the school.
Payments can be made electronically via credit card or PayPal. MySchoolBucks.com charges a convenience fee of $2.49 for each time a payment is made electronically.
Payments can be made at no charge to the child's account at the child's school cafeteria. Please note that one check must be written per school. If payment is made to the school cafeteria, please note that the check should be made out to Harrison Central School District.
Include the child's name on the check
Include the child's account number
If you have any further questions, or need your child(ren)'s ID numbers, please contact Food Service Director, Christine Clementz at 914-630-3114.
Please visit MySchoolBucks.com to register and access your account(s).
If your child's MySchoolBucks account reaches a low balance, if you have signed up to receive automatic notifications, you will receive an email or be contacted with instructions for adding money to his/her account. Students will not be made aware of these low balances. If a student does not have sufficient funds to purchase a meal, he/she will be provided with a meal consistent with the provisions of this policy. However, the charging of items outside of the standard reimbursable meal (i.e., a la carte items, adult meals, etc.) is expressly prohibited.
Please be aware that if you choose to use E-check payments rather than a credit card to fund your child's account, e-checks can take up to one week to clear and post to your child's account. If you have a problem establishing an account using MySchoolBucks, please contact them by phone at 855-832-5226 or email at email@example.com.
If you are having problems after you entered your credit card information, please contact Pay Pal at either 402-935-2050 or 888-221-1161 for payment issues. Click here for an important disclaimer about the MySchoolBucks program.
