All students are able to receive a free breakfast and free lunch everyday – no matter whether they are attending classes on campus or participating in remote learning. Meals can be served to children directly or adults caring for children at home. Free meals are available to our community until September 30th, 2021 through funding provided by the USDA. Once USDA funding ends the school meal program will return to our normal school year model. Although there is no paperwork required to receive meals under this program, we strongly urge all families to submit paperwork to apply for the traditional free & reduced meal program. Not only will this allow your students to receive free meals after the special program ends, but enrollment in the meal benefit program helps the school district to secure additional funding (Title I, reduced utility rates, etc.). Meal benefit applications can be filled out and returned at any time this fall; please contact our food service director or your school’s office to request forms.
Items such as bottled beverages, milk, and other “a la carte” items are available as well. These items are not included in the USDA program and can only be sold to students in school who have available funds on their lunch account. During COVID-19 we strongly discourage payments by cash; the preferred methods of adding funds to accounts are prepayment by check or using the online payment portal.
