Fee Reductions & Resources

There are programs within the Stanwood Camano School District which offer reductions in fees for families who qualify for the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.  In most cases, they will require proof of benefits. Proof of benefits, in the form of a letter, is sent to the primary guardian on file at the time of qualification. The primary guardian, will either receive the letter via email (if you have a current email attached to your student's primary guardian's contact information) or through the mail.  Letters are also available through SKYWARD Family Access. This letter will serve as proof of benefits for most programs. 


It is the parent's responsibility to share the letter.  We will, upon request, send another letter via email, mail or provide one in-person to the primary guardian on file.
 

A fee may be charged when additional copies of this letter are requested.

 

Thank you,

The Food Service Department

Pay to Participate

Due to the rising costs associated with the Stanwood-Camano School District’s athletic programs, and the statewide educational budget reductions, the District has approved an Athletics Participation Fee. The fee must be paid when the athlete makes the team and before the first competition. Parents of students who qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and have a current application on file with the district office are eligible for a free or reduced athletic participation fee. A copy of the Notice of Eligibility for Free or Reduced-Price Meals OR a print out from Family Access* must be provided by the guardian and given to the athletic department, in order to take advantage of either the free or reduced-price athletic fee. (Applications for the NSLP are available on-line, at all schools, and the district office). Parents are responsible for completing and submitting the required paperwork. Follow the link below to print out a Pay to Participate Form.
