School Lunch

DCSD Nutrition Services
 
Our school lunch program is provided by Douglas County School District (DCSD) Nutrition Services. Students are always welcome to bring their own lunch from home, but if you or your student prefer, you may choose a free DCSD lunch instead. At this time, WCA is not offering a breakfast program. For any questions related to school lunch, please call DCSD Nutrition Services at 303-387-0320.
 
MySchoolBucks
 
In order for students to purchase seconds or al a carte options, parents must first create a lunch payment account for each student on MySchoolBucks (MSB) and add funds. You will need to know your student(s) six-digit DCSD Student Number, which can be found in your Infinite Campus parent account in the upper left corner next to the student picture. The account must be preloaded with money (a credit card is required). Once their lunch payment account set-up is complete, students may purchase a DCSD lunch on any school day. (You do not pre-order meals through DCSD Nutrition Services.) It is helpful if students know their six-digit DCSD Student Number, but if they don't know it, we can look it up. If you encounter a problem while setting up your MySchoolBucks account, please call DCSD Nutrition Services at 303-387-0320.
 
You may also contact MySchoolBucks directly by calling 855-832-5226 from 7am - 7pm Eastern or by email: ParentSupport@MySchoolBucks.com. Find helpful MySchoolBucks videos here
 
Nutrislice App
 
Download the Nutrislice app to easily view lunch menu items for WCA on any given day. View nutritional information and food allergy warnings and sort the daily menu by food preferences or dietary needs to see what students can eat. You can even rate the menu items to give DCSD Nutrition Services feedback!
 
 
Financial Assistance
 
This year, Douglas County School District will provide lunch to all students free of
charge, regardless of the child’s free or reduced-price meal benefit status. However, it is still
highly encouraged that families continue to complete and submit free and reduced-price meal
applications.

The submission of a free and reduced-price meal application and subsequent determination of
benefits goes beyond eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. Based on your application,
you could be eligible for the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program. P-
EBT is a program that provides a cash-like benefit to purchase groceries for students to replace
meals they would have normally received when in-person at school during the pandemic. In
addition, submitting an application also helps ensure students receive the maximum amount
of benefits they are eligible for, including discounts on school fees and athletics. Interested families must apply every school year, even if previously qualified.

Your assistance in completing and submitting the free and reduced-price application is greatly
appreciated. Apply now at www.myschoolapps.com. All information provided is confidential and
protected. The application typically opens mid-July for the next school year. If qualified for lunch assistance, families will be notified by DCSD with a confirmation letter, which must then be given to the WCA Business Manager, Heidi Bohrer.

If you have any questions about completing the application, please reach out to Susan Babineau at
Babineau@dcsdk12.org.
