Please fill out this form if you want a refund or transfer funds from your student's lunch account. Refunds are processed once a month the day after the monthly board meeting, so please be mindful when requesting a refund they aren't immediate.

Checks are mailed out the day after the board approves the docket. I will cross reference what is put on this form with what is in PowerSchool for the student.
