End of 2023-24 Reminder About Student Cafeteria Accounts

This is a reminder about MySchoolBucks student cafeteria accounts. With not much of the school year left, we do not want families unnecessarily charged if their student’s account goes below the automatic deposit threshold. If you have automatic deposits set up for your student’s account, we recommend pausing them before your student’s last day of school this year.

If your student is returning to Schodack in September, any positive balance left in their account will roll over for them to use next year. For 2024 Seniors with a positive balance in their account, families may request one of the following options:

  • Roll it over to a younger sibling’s account.
  • Donate it to the school charity accounts to benefit other Schodack students. The district determines eligible students, specific students may not be requested.
  • Receive a refund check for the remaining balance.

If you have questions or requests for senior account balances, please contact Michelle Dellavechia via email ( or phone (518-732-2297 ext. 2361).
