Please continue to check back weekly (or daily in the days closer to the start of school) as student schedules and routes may be added and/or adjusted up until the start of school on Wednesday, September 7.
  • If you see an issue with your child’s transportation information, parent transportation assistance is currently available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. by calling 360-563-3525 or emailing transportation@sno.wednet.edu. If you notice any missing or incorrect transportation information, it must be communicated to the student’s school or transportation no later than 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 1, in order to ensure the correct information is available by the first day of school. Please note that after Friday, September 2, it can take up to 72 business hours for bus assignments to be made and available to families and schools in Skyward/Family Access.


Skyward/Family Access

  • Step 1 - In Skyward/Family Access on each student's profile is a Student Info tab from left menu.
  • Step 2 - In the Student Info tab will be a web link that says "View Bus Schedule." (It is located just below the student's address and just above the birthday info.) Click the web link.
  • Step 3 - The student's bus number will pop up. If you click "View Pickup Bus Stops" or "View Drop Off Bus Stops" the route numbers and times will pop open.

Food Service

  • Any balances remaining your student’s meal account from the 2015-2016 school year will move forward to the new school year. You can view your child’s meal purchases and account balances online through Skyward/Family Access. If there is a negative balance on your child's account, please be sure to pay the amount owed as soon as possible. Please note these negative food service balances are considered fines and must be paid before things such as student parking passes will be granted. If you have recently made a payment and it is not reflected in the online balance, we appreciate your payment. The updated balance should be reflected shortly in your student's account. Please contact Food Service at 360-563-7357 or food.service@sno.wednet.edu with any questions or concerns.


Online payment

  • Step 1 - Log into Skyward/Family Access and select “Food Service” from left menu. Screen with account information for your student(s) will open. Be sure you are using your parent/guardian login – using a student login gains you access to Student Access, which will not allow you to make a Food Service payment.
  • Step 2 - Select “Make A Payment.” If you have more than one student you will need to update payment amount for each student that you would like to make a payment for.
  • Step 3 - Online payment entry screen will open. If you have more than one student you will be able to make payments for all of your students from this screen. Select "Update Payment Amount."
  • Step 4 - Online payment entry screen will open. Enter the payment amount and then select “Update Cart” which will take you back to the online payment entry overview screen.
  • Step 5 - Confirm that the payments have been updated.
  • Step 6 - If total payment info is correct select “Pay with Vendor.”
  • Step 7 - Shopping cart screen will show you the payments that are waiting to be processed. Select “Go to Checkout” to complete the payment process. If you have previously set-up a RevTrak account you will be asked for your account information to process the payment. If you are a first-time user, you will be asked to set up a RevTrak account.

Payment by check

  • If paying at your student's school, checks should be made payable to Snohomish School District. Be sure to put your child’s name in the “note” section at the bottom of the check; student number is also very helpful. Checks payable to Snohomish School District can also be sent to Snohomish School District, Attn: Sodexo/Food Service Dept., 14211 Snohomish Cascade Drive, Snohomish, WA 98296
