The Avon Old Farms School Student Bank assists students in managing their personal expenses. The debit card system handles on-campus expenses (i.e., school supplies and snacks from the Hawk’s Nest). This system helps to eliminate the need to carry large sums of cash on campus.
My Kids Spending
Balance information can be obtained by going online and viewing your student’s account using My Kids Spending (MKS). Parents are required to setup a login account to MKS for online deposits and to monitor expenditures. The school will no longer send out monthly statements. To avoid overdrafts, a minimum balance of $50 must be maintained. If an account falls below $50, a student’s debit card privileges will be restricted until the funds are replenished. Payments to replenish the account balance may be made by mailing a check directly to Avon Old Farms School Student Bank with your son's name in the memo line or via cash payment in the Hawk's Nest. Payments can also be made online through My Kids Spending via check or credit cards.

Each student is issued an Avon Old Farms School debit card which will also serve as his student photo ID. The debit card will be valid while your son is actively enrolled at Avon Old Farms School. Lost or damaged cards will be replaced at a cost of $10 per card.
An initial deposit of $500 is required to activate and establish each student’s account by September 1st. School supplies will be deducted from this initial deposit. Please note that testing fees (SAT, ACT, TOEFL, AP Testing), dorm damage, haircuts, overdue library books, postage, fundraising donations, and additional transportation will also be deducted from the student’s debit card account.
A weekly cash allowance may be obtained at the Hawk’s Nest Monday thru Saturday 8:00am-12:00pm. Avon Old Farms School strongly suggests a limit of $40 per week for freshman and sophomores and $50 per week for juniors and seniors. If the student does not use his allowance, it may be carried over to the following week, accumulating up to three weeks allowance.
