Free & Reduced Meal Applications
Free/Reduced Applications for 2020-2021 are now available online and hard copies available at each school and at the District Office.With the increase in loss or reduction of family income in many households,we encourage you to complete a "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application" form to see if you qualify. Forms may be filled out anytime throughout the year. The best way is to complete an application online, in Family Access: 1) Select one child from the arrow at the top, 2) Click the Applications tab, 3) Select Add an Application where you will enter all children. Applications are also available in the school office, administration building or you may print a hard copy (see links on the right).Applications will be processed within 10 days of submission. After your application has been processed, you will receive a letter by mail or email confirming approval or denial and the eligible benefits. Keep this letter for proof for other benefits that might apply. All information provided is held confidential unless written permission is submitted. Students who qualify for lunch also qualify for breakfast.Altho meals are free for the rest of the 20/21 School year, if you feel you qualify we ask you fill out an application to see if you qualify. Funding for many programs throughout the District rely on our approved applications and it may help you with other programs or benefits as well.
