Free & Reduced Price Meals Information

Families may apply (or reapply) for benefits at any time during the school year, but in order to avoid any interruption in benefits, initial applications for free and reduced meals must be completed each year by September 25th, and are processed in the Dining Services Office.  Applications are sent home with students the first week of school, mailed, and are also available in every school office as well as on the school district website any time during the school year in case family finances change. 
 
Please note: A new application for free or reduced price meals must be submitted every year, even if your child was eligible for free or reduced-price meals in the prior year. 
 
The free/reduced meals benefit applies to breakfast and lunch meals only, not milk, à la carte foods, vending, etc. 
 
As students take a meal, their PIN will be recorded and their account charged.  Each purchase must be tracked by federal regulations.  No child ever needs to reveal whether they are free/reduced/paid.  This is confidential information.
