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. Applications can be obtained from the school secretary or via the link below. All applications should be returned to your child’s main office secretary.
*Please note: Effective 9/1/2020, the USDA has approved free school meals for all students through December 31, 2020. For families that want to apply for Free & Reduced Lunch, please complete the application as soon as possible as the free meal program will end December 31st. If an application is not approved by December 31st, meals will be full priced at $2.25 and will be the parent’s responsibility. Applications can be dropped off at any of the security desks at each school or mailed to the address on the application.
For further information about free or reduced-price meal eligibility, please call the school your child attends.
