All refunds must be requested from either the Tumwater School District Food Services Department or the School site your student attends.
If the amount of the refund is less than $10.00 you may request the refund directly from your students School.
All refund requests over $10.00 must be submitted to the TSD Food Services Office. Please download and complete our REVENUE/REFUND AUTHORIZATION FORM then mail or fax it to the TSD Food Services Department. Your request will be processed based on the final account balance in the students account. Please note that the requestor must be listed in the TSD Skyward database as an adult household member or have other documentation stating they are eligible to receive the refund.
You should receive the refund within 4 to 6 weeks. If there is an issue with your refund you will be contacted within 1 to 2 weeks. Note: We will use all necessary resources to contact the requestor in the case of an issue. However, it is the requestor’s responsibility to follow up in the matter of not receiving a refund.
Please remember that all account balances carry over at the end of each school year to the following school year. The balances also transfer within all Tumwater schools automatically to follow your child.
Transfer Meal Account Request
It is possible to transfer meal funds between students’ meal accounts either during the school year OR at the end of the year. For example, if you have a student who will be graduating and will no longer need the funds, you can requests that those funds be transferred to a sibling’s account. All requests to transfer funds between student accounts need to be made directly through the Food Service office at (360) 709-7740.
