Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete a “Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form.” The forms can be obtained and returned (completed) to any school office. Please Note: Even though school meals are free for all students this year, to determine eligibility for textbook assistance, you MUST fill out the F/R application. You will be notified by mail of your child’s status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
