Payments at LWHS
There are several ways to make payments at Lake Washington High School. Below is an overview of the options and what type of payments are acceptable.
School Meals for the 2022-23 School Year:
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the USDA has funded free meals to all students. The USDA free meal waiver is set to expire on June 30, 2022. As a result, the district will start charging fees again for lunch and breakfast starting in the 2022-23 school year
There will be no charge for those eligible to receive benefits for free or reduced meals who have a current application on file. (Reduced price subsidy for both breakfast and lunch at all levels will be paid by the state). To receive meal assistance benefits for the 2022-23 school year, a new application for free and reduced meals will need to be filled out. We strongly encourage all families who might be eligible for benefits to submit an application. Applications for the 2022-2023 school year will be available to complete online (preferred method) through Myschoolapps , or by manually filling out an application found on the district website: Application. Both can be completed after July 1, 2022. If you currently have an application on file, you will receive seamless meal benefits through October 17, 2022, at which time you will need to have a new application on file. The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and parents only need to provide one application per family or household.
Additional Benefits for Free and Reduced:
Students that are eligible for Free and Reduced meals are also eligible to receive fee waivers for athletics, extracurricular activities, and ASB cards. In order for the district to waive these fees, you must provide consent to share your Free and Reduced eligibility status for this purpose. You can provide consent on the Free and Reduced application. If you are already qualified for free and reduced meals or you are directly certified through the State, you can provide your consent to share eligibility information in Family Access by following these instructions|instrucciones. You can also complete a Consent to Share Form online and email it to F-RMeals@lwsd.org.

School Counselors can also help connect you with benefits that you may be eligible for if you qualify for free and reduced meals.
