Student Bank and ATM
Student ID Cards
Each student is issued a Student ID Card. The ID card will be valid while the student is actively enrolled at the school. Lost or damaged cards will be replaced at a cost of $5 per card.
Avon Old Farms School strongly recommends that each student have a personal bank account. If a student does not have ATM access to a bank from his hometown, the Business Office will provide assistance in establishing an individual savings and/or checking account that includes ATM access.
Due to the structure of the daily schedule, this could take some time to complete at the start of the year; therefore, we strongly encourage our families to make banking arrangements before they arrive in September.
If opening a personal bank account is not an option, parents can deposit funds directly into their son’s student bank account for personal use such as weekly allowance, transportation, or other special needs. Weekly allowances may be drawn at the Business Office from this account. The recommended weekly allowance for all students is $40. Funds may be picked up on Wednesdays or Fridays, between 12-3:30 p.m.
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 does not mail out monthly statements. 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 Business Office. Payments can also be made online through My Kids Spending via check or credit cards.
