    Meal accounts
    A meal account is automatically set up for every Snohomish student. Parents/guardians can add funds to meal accounts by sending cash or a check to school with their child or by paying online through our TouchBase online payment portal. Parents/guardians may pre-pay for meals so that students do not need to carry money to school each day. All schools use an electronic point-of-sale system that keeps a running balance. This can be used for breakfast, lunch and a la carte purchases.

    Students will use their school ID card or a meal card to access their account. Students’ lunch status is confidential. The system for paying for lunch is designed to protect students’ confidentiality, so there is no difference between free, reduced or regular lunch payment. Elementary students are issued a lunch card. As students go through the lunch line, their card is scanned, and the meal price is deducted from their account. Secondary students enter their ID number into a keypad to have the meal price deducted from their 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: Chartwells/Food Service Dept., 14211 Snohomish Cascade Drive, Snohomish, WA 98296

    Child graduate or no longer a district student?
    Any balances remaining your student’s food service account from the previous school year will move forward to the new school year. If your child has graduated, funds are automatically transferred to a younger sibling's account. If you child has graduated and there are no younger siblings, or if your child is no longer a district student, a refund of any remaining account balance can be requested by calling Food Service at 360-563-7357.
