Meal Refund Policy

Student Meal Account Refunds

  • Parents/Guardians may request a meal account refund at any time during the school year by completing an Account Refund Request Form and submitting it to the school cafeteria or the Food and Nutrition Services Office.   Refunds for balances of $5.00 or less may be refunded on site by the cafeteria (funds permitting).  Refunds for balances exceeding $5.00 will be issued in the form of a check from the Food and Nutrition Services Office. 

    Requests for refunds for graduating students or withdrawn students must be made within one year of graduation or withdrawal from the district by submitting an Account Refund Request Form.  Any Positive balance remaining after one year on an inactive account will become the property of the Avondale Elementary School District Food and Nutrition Services Department. This is for non-returning students only.  Account balances for returning students automatically transfer to the new school year.

    Parents/Guardians may also elect to transfer any positive balance to another student account or to a donation account established to aid in the payment of student lunch debt for the Avondale Elementary School District.  Transfers of student account balances may be made by submitting a Transfer Request Form to the Food and Nutrition Services Office.

    Refund Request Forms and Transfer Request Forms are available below and in each school cafeteria. You can also transfer within your family securely online by clicking here.
