It's Not Just About The Cafeteria!
Did you know that the federal Free & Reduced School Meal Application is not only about eating in the cafeteria? In addition to providing an opportunity for some of our students to eat a nutritious meal for no-cost or at a significantly-reduced cost, it also generates additional money for our school. For example, the amount of money we receive from the federal government in our Title programs is based directly on the percentage of students enrolled in the Free & Reduced program, regardless of whether they ever eat a meal in the cafeteria. Our reimbursement from the federal government for our cost of providing Internet and Phone service is also directly tied to that same percentage. Our ability to apply for both State and Federal grants is tied directly to the Free & Reduced program enrollment.
How do you apply? Starting July 20, 2021 online applications will be available through Parent Portal to complete and submit directly to the school. Click on the more tab then set up your pin. You will need to confirm your signature and complete the online application. You will not need to submit a paper application once you have completed and submitted the online application. You will receive a notice by email of your approval or denial. We are pleased to update the meals approval process. In the Meal Applications box on the left are two documents. One is the set of instructions, which includes the amounts that we use internally to determine program eligibility.
The forms are confidential. When you submit your application to the Program Secretary she is the only person or our auditors who will see the form. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Program Secretary - her information is listed below.
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 online. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
