To help simplify payment of school meals, Butler Tech has enrolled in an internet-based service called Café Prepay. This service is a website where you can pay for your child’s food needs using your Visa, or MasterCard. Participation in this service is voluntary; you can enroll at any time. This program enables the students to move quickly through the lunch lines, avoiding the need for money transactions with the cashiers. It also ensures the money that you provide to your child’s food is used for that purpose only.
Café Prepay enables parents to keep track of their child’s account balance. In addition, the website offers Automatic Replenish. This is optimal for the student whose lunch spending varies greatly from day to day. With automatic replenish, when the student’s account balance goes below a specified amount, another specified amount is then deposited into the student’s account via credit card. Using “automatic replenish on low balance”, the student will never run out of money. Conversely, your credit card will not be charged until the student’s balance goes below the specified dollar amount.
Café Prepay also enables you to view your child’s participation report, which means you can monitor your child’s spending and see what he’s eating each day (via the Participation Report link).
To get started, you will first enroll at myschoolbucks.com. You will be asked to enter your email address and a password, which will be used each time you log in. Please note that a valid email address is required and that Café Prepay stores any necessary personal information in a secure, offline database which is accessed only to process payments and send payment confirmation via email.
Please visit www.pay4lunch.com/faq.aspx for more information. If you have questions that are not answered on the website, we encourage you to use the “Contact” link for Café Prepay. We hope you find this service a convenient alternative.

Each month in the Cafeteria we focus on a particular food item to encourage students to try different foods with that item in it. This is a way to point out that particular food item and give the students an opportunity to realize the variety of ways on that food item can be prepared and to try new things.
