Paying 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. A courtesy, or emergency lunch, 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 through RevTrak.
- Make checks/money orders payable to the Clover Park 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 253-583-5490.
