Free and Reduced Meals

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."  This form can be obtained here on the website or at your child's school and returned (completed) to any school office.  Para una versión de este formulario en español, haz clic aquí

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-price meals.  This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits

A new form must be completed for each household or family at the beginning of a new school year. Meal benefits from the previous school year will carry over into the next school year for the first 30 days of school. After this Grace period, if we haven't processed a new household or family application, the meal eligibility will go to fully paid. You will be notified by email or US mail of your child's status. Until notification, you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.

Factors considered in the application process are the household size and total household income. Household size is considered all persons, related or unrelated: Including parents, children, grandparents who live in your home and share living expenses. The total household income is the income each household member received last month before taxes - this includes wages, social security, pension, unemployment, welfare, child support, alimony, and any other cash income.
