Free & Reduced Meal Eligibility
As always, the district is willing to work with families so that all children are provided with a nutritious meal during the school day. If your family’s income status has impacted your ability to keep your child’s meal account up-to-date, you may want to consider completing a Free and Reduced Price Meal Application which can be submitted any time during the school year.
Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, student meals will not longer be served to all students for free. Parents/Guardians will be required to file a completed application with their student's school to qualify for free or reduced meals as required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service. To simplify and make the application process more efficient, the district has enabled an online application through MySchoolApps. If you would prefer a paper application, they are available in the main office of all school buildings as well as the district office.

program, the district does not have any information about payments or
eligibility. All questions should be directed to the P-EBT Food Benefits
