Important Free & Reduced Meals Application Information
COVID-19 relief packages recently passed by the United States Congress contain numerous benefits for families financially impacted by the pandemic. Some of these benefits are available to students who are eligible for free or reduced-priced school meals.
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 as soon as possible. The application then will be used to determine which benefits your child(ren) and/or household may be eligible to receive. Please be aware that applying for free or reduced-priced meals will not impact meals that your child(ren) currently receive through the school.
STSD students will only qualify for these benefits with an approved current school year free or reduced-priced meals application on file with the food service office. 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.

If you do not have access to a printer, please contact the food service office to make other arrangements to complete an application.
