Food Service Meal Services 2020-21 Information

 

The District Office of Food Services would like to inform all families about the changes to meal services. 

 

Free & Reduced Meal Applications

 

To apply for free or reduced meals please click here or to learn more click here

A free & reduced meals application must be completed and submitted every school year as the application does not carry over year to year. STSD students will only qualify for free or reduced meals with an approved current school year free & reduced meals application on file with the food service office. The only exception would be if you receive a notice of direct certification from the food service department each year prior to the start of the school year.  

If you are new to the district and feel you may qualify for meal assistance, a free & reduced meals application must be completed prior to the assistance being received.  In addition, if you received free or reduced meals at a previous district you must contact Food Services immediately so that the necessary information is received by the food service office. New students who do not have an approved current school year application on file with the food service department will pay full price for their meals and parents will be responsible for the charges accumulated. 

If your student was approved for free or reduced meals for the 2019-2020 school year, that application will expire on October 6, 2020.
