Important Free & Reduced Application Information
If your student was approved for free or reduced meals for the 2018.2019 school year that application expired on October 7, 2019. A new application must be completed and returned to school no later than October 6, 2019. If this application isn't received prior to the deadline, parents will be responsible for the charges accumulated and the students will be required to pay full price for school meals. Click on the Apply for Meal Benefits tab for copies of the 2019.2020 PA Household Application for Free & Reduced Price School Meals application.
A free and reduced meals application must be completed and submitted every school year as the application doesn't carry over year after year.
