End of School Year and Withdraw Balances

  • All negative balances, including those for students who are approved for free or reduced meal prices, must be paid in full by June 12th of each year. 
  • Your child's balance — whether positive, negative, or zero — will carry over to next school year. 
  • Student account statements can be viewed online through Family Access. If you do not have access to Family Access, contact your child’s building secretary for your user name and password.  

Please select your choice upon withdrawal with this form link 

If your child is leaving the school district (moving, graduating, etc.) and they have a remaining positive balance on their Food Service account, their funds can be:

  1. transferred to a sibling,
  2. donated to a needy student (determined by the Food Service office), or
  3. refunded to the parent/guardian, please provide an address 

Upon withdrawal from the district, amounts remaining on account for students over $5.00 will be refunded to the family unless an option above has been selected.  Prior to refunding any credit balances owed, the Food Service Department will check to ensure no other household family member has a negative balance within food service.  Positive balances from one household family member will be transferred to a negative balance of another household member.  For amounts remaining under $5.00 paid by check or cash, the district will remit funds directly to the Department of Revenue Unclaimed Property Division after 2 years, unless a parent specifically requests to receive a refund by emailing An appointment will be scheduled for refund pickup at the District Office located at 511 Chambers Street in Steilacoom.  Amounts paid by credit card will be refunded to the card used regardless of the refund amount.

Please note that positive food service balances cannot be transferred to pay for outstanding fines or fees.  Outstanding fines or fees will need to be paid separately.
