Fee Reductions, Waivers & Resources


More than just Free & Reduced Meals

There are programs within the Stanwood Camano School District and in the community that offer reductions in or waivers of fees and other benefits 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 responsibility of the parent or guardian 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.

Some of the additional benefits for students and families listed below include:

  • Reduced fees for school sports 

  • Discounts on their Snohomish PUD bills

  • Discounts on YMCA membership and program fees

  • Discounts on fifth-grade camp costs

  • Access to Operation School Bell, which provides new clothing to students
