Breakfast and lunch is served on all three campuses. Now it's even easier to keep money in your students school lunch account and monitor what they are buying. MySchoolBucks is an online tool for parents that’s simple to use allowing you to make deposits and track your students balance so they never run out of lunch money again. Visit MySchoolBucks in order to register and learn more about this convenient service. When registering for the first time use McKeel Academy of Technology as the district.

Note: there is a small service fee for each deposit.

The Schools of McKeel Academy (TSMA) are pleased to announce that this year we will be operating under a National School Lunch Program (NSLP) waiver that allows all students to eat for FREE.

Making Healthy Choices

Tips for parents & guardians

Parents can help their student make good food choices by reviewing the monthly menu from the website at home with your student, and if possible, join them for a school lunch in the McKeel Wildcat Café to be a role model on choosing healthy meals from our food choices. Cost for adult lunch is $5.00.
