All school cafeterias in the Olympia School District operate with a computerized meal purchase system. Your student has an individual account with Child Nutrition Services that is setup automatically once he/she is enrolled. This allows every student the opportunity to prepay for meals. Parents may deposit money for the day, week, and month or for as long as you wish. Elementary students whose balance becomes low will receive a low balance reminder note from his/her school. With secondary students a verbal reminder will be given by our cashiers. Negative meal balances must be taken care of immediately. A phone message system is in place that will notify a household when a student has a negative balance.
All families who wish to apply for free or reduced meals with the Olympia Public Schools are encouraged to fill out an application at anytime during the school year. A new application needs to be completed at the beginning of each school year. Applications are available at all schools and on the Child Nutrition Services web site. Once an application is completed, it can be submitted to a school's lunchroom manager or mailed directly to the Child Nutrition Services Office for processing.
