Charging Policy
 
A courtesy (emergency) lunch of a sandwich, milk, and fruit, is available to students who do not have money in their lunch account. To help assure that students eat, we may allow a child to charge a meal (the parent/guardian is responsible to pay for any meals served to their student).  Students who have a negative balance will not be permitted to charge meals until their account is current. 
 
 
Paying/Prepaying for School Meals
 

Student balances follow the student from school-to-school within the district and remain on the student account from one year to the next.

You are welcome, and encouraged, to pre pay your child's meals.  To help assure that each child eats lunch, we may allow a child to "charge" a meal (the parent/guardian is responsible to pay for any meals served to their student), but students who have a negative balance* in their meal account will not be permitted to charge meals until their account is current. (A courtesy, or emergency lunch, consisting of a sandwich, milk, and fruit is available to students who do not have money in their account.)

 

  • To pre pay into your child's account, you may give payments (cash, money order, or check) directly to a member of the kitchen staff, or you may make online payments (see Online Payment Option information in the column to the right) to manage deposits using a debit or credit card.
  • Make checks/money orders payable to the Auburn School District.
  • Please include the student's name, ID number, grade, and homeroom teacher's name on the check or money order (or on the envelope if you send a cash deposit).

Upon request, the balance of your student's account can be refunded.  Refunds take approximately three to four weeks and the refund check is mailed to the parent/guardian.  To request a refund, call the Child Nutrition Services office at 253-931-4972.

 
 
*In June 2014, negative balances on student accounts were transferred/moved to the district fine list.  If your student had a negative balance at the end of the 2013-14 school year, it is now showing as a kitchen/cafeteria fine on InTouch.  These fines may be paid through the main office or with the bookkeeper at the school.

Making online payments for school meals is convenient.

Remember, in addition to pre paying for school meals, from Family Access you can:

  • see if your student was served a meal;
  • monitor account balances (you can choose a low-balance-notification amount so you'll be aware when your student is getting low on money);
  • view breakfast and lunch menus;
  • complete an online application for free or reduced-price meals, see if your application has been processed, find out meal eligibility, and even print the page from Family Access to verify meal eligibility;
  • continue accessing grades, attendance, and more! 


* This convenient, safe, secure, and time-saving option is available to you from RevTrak.  Each transaction is charged a processing fee (the fee will be displayed prior to payment being made) by the vendor.
