NTPS is proud to be part of a Compassionate Community! Last year to help address the issue of school lunch debt and how schools respond to students who run out of money for school meals, we started the Compassion Fund! Previously, this fund was used to help ensure all students receive a complete school meal -- not a courtesy meal (cereal and milk, milk, in addition to full access to the fruit and vegetable salad bar. New legislation requires districts to provide full meals to all students now, regardless of their lunch account balance. However, the Compassion Fund will be used to help pay off any debt for those families who apply and qualify for Free & Reduced lunch.
If you would like to make a donation to the Compassion Fund, you may come to the District Office in person with your donation in the form of cash or check, or mail a check payable to North Thurston Public Schools (memo Compassion Lunch Fund) to: 305 College St. N.E. Lacey, WA 98516. Contact Financial Services at 360-412-4432 or Food & Nutrition at 360-412-4446 with any questions. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
