2023-224 MHS Bell Schedules: 2023-24 MHS Bell Schedules
MHS Activities: MHS Activities Aug. 22-26, 2023
● 2023-2024 Breakfast/Lunch Payment Process Change: Over the summer, we changed our food and
nutrition system to utilize My School Bucks. As a part of that change, students will utilize their
Student ID cards to scan for breakfast and lunch.


For students who had their picture taken on August 16, they received their new Student ID and the
barcode is printed on it. They will scan the barcode on their Student ID anytime they purchase
breakfast and/or lunch.


For students who did NOT receive their new Student ID (did NOT attend August 16 Picture Day), our
Food and Nutrition Staff have printed barcodes to be placed on an old Student ID or other item so
they can scan during breakfast and/or lunchtime. Barcodes will be available for pickup the morning
of 8/23 starting at 7:30AM in the Cafeteria.


FYI – The next Picture Day will be on August 29, where Student IDs will be printed on-site! This is for
any MHS student who did not get their picture taken on August 16. Retakes will be taken on October 4th.

After this date, students will use their Student ID to purchase breakfast/lunch items.
Thank you for your understanding and willingness to help in this!
