Fines & Fees (Payment Information)
Our office accepts credit cards (through our online payment portal), checks (payable to North Thurston Public Schools), and cash (please come in person during regular office hours to make cash payments).
Free & Reduced Lunch Eligible? Your ASB-related fees (athletics, etc.) could be waived. More information on the bottom of this page >>
Paying with Credit Card?
How do I log in? Use your Family Access login information for the first time.
- When you are assigned a new ID and password for Skyward Family Access, they will initially match with a one-time overnight sync. Change your password in Skyward the first day you receive it so your Payment Portal and your Skyward password will be the same after that first sync.
- If you change your Skyward password after that first sync, the passwords will not match and you need to change your Payment Portal password manually to keep them the same.
