Notice for Online Lunch Payments:

MDUSD has discontinued the use of MySchoolBucks for payments to students’ meal accounts. Please sign up on the new website Titan School Solutions to continue managing your student’s account.

All prior year’s meal account balances were transferred to Titan on Jul. 23, 2018. Please check your Titan account to see the transfer, not MySchoolBucks.  MSB does not show the transfer nor does it have the correct current balance for your account.

If you have a student who has graduated or moved out of district and would like a refund or transfer balance to a sibling, please email William Chong your student’s name, ID number (both students for transfers) and mailing address (for refunds).
