Important Free & Reduced Meals Application Information:
If you believe your school aged child(ren) may qualify for free or reduced-priced meals this school year and have not yet submitted the application for free or reduced-priced meals to the school, we encourage you to do so by October 21, 2021. Please be aware that applying for free or reduced-priced meals will not impact meals that your child(ren) currently receives through the school.
The free and reduced-priced meals application must be completed and submitted every school year as the application does not carry over year to year. The only exception would be if you received a notice of direct certification from the food service department at the start of this school year. Again, this letter must be received each year and does not carry over year to year. When in doubt please contact the food service department for clarification.
If you are new to the district and feel you may qualify for meal assistance, a free and reduced meals application must be completed prior to assistance being received. In addition, if you received free or reduced-priced meals at a previous district you must contact us immediately so that the necessary information is received in the food service office. New students who do not have an approved current school year application on file with the food service department will not be eligible for the COVID-19 relief packages.
