Meal Account Balances
All balances, both positive and negative, carry-over from year to year, as long as the student is registered with Shoreline School District.
Once a student graduates, any unpaid negative balance will be added to the student record as a fine.
If a positive balance remains, an automated utility will transfer that positive balance to any sibling still attending a Shoreline school.
If the graduating senior does not have siblings in the SSD, you may contact the Food Service Office to request a refund or donate the balance to the Angel Fund, used to pay negative meal balances for families in need. If you are requesting a refund, please include the name of parent the check should be issued to and confirm your mailing address. If your student has any fines/fees, the money will be applied there first and the balance will be mailed to you.
For the 2021-2022 school year, the federal government has funded a TEMPORARY program that will allow school districts to serve FREE breakfast and lunch to all K-12 enrolled students regardless of household income. Although meals will be free for all K-12 students, families are still encouraged to apply for free and reduced benefits (there are other discounts, scholarships, and fee waivers available at school and in the community tied to the approval of this application). Applications will be available in mid-August HERE and in the school calendar mailed to your home.
There will be no a la carte sales, cash sales or adult sales at the Elementary locations.
Middle and High Schools will offer a la carte items for purchase. Cash on the student meal account or in-hand will be required for any a la carte sale.
