In an effort to decrease cost and improve services rendered, APCS has chosen a new vendor as our online payment system for student meals.

As a result of this change, we have migrated our payment portal from "My School Bucks" to "EZSchool Pay".  All remaining balances from "My School Bucks" have been transferred to your "EZSchool Pay" account.
