How to Pay Fines & Fees
Our office accepts checks (payable to North Thurston Public Schools), cash, and credit/debit cards through our online payment portal. Please come during regular business hours to make cash/check payments.
Fee Waiver for those that Qualify for Free & Reduced meals: You may have reduced or eliminated school & district fees! Once you've filled out your Free & Reduced Lunch application, visit the Online Forms item in the Skyward menu for access to the Fee Reduction Consent Form. Once you've filled it out, our office staff will take it from there!
