If you have sufficient funds in your child’s My School Account, please go to www.myschoolaccount.com and place your order.

When you open My School account and your balance shows $10.00, that means you have that amount in your account available to spend. If your account shows ($10.00) that means that your account is negative by that amount and must be paid prior to checking out.

If you do not have sufficient funds in your My School Account you will need to add funds via RevTrak. Please use this link to add funds. RevTrak - Food Service

If you add items to your My School Account to determine the amount due for checkout, then add funds in your RevTrak account, you will need to log out and then log in again for the funds to show in your My School Account.

If you have any questions regarding Food Service for the 2022-23 school year, please contact Angie Cryderman at crydermana@hollyacademy.org or 248-634-5554 x154.
