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. 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.

Factors considered in the application process are 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.

Foster children are categorically eligible for free meal benefits. An application is not needed yet there does need to be documentation of status by a state or local entity familiar with the child's status. Foster children may be included in the household application as part of the household size.

Free and Reduced Meal Applications:

We encourage all parents/guardians to fill out this form so the district can assess whether you are eligible for this program. It is imperative that these forms be returned as soon as possible so your child/children can benefit from this service. It is important to make you aware that the district receives funding from the state based on the number of students enrolled in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Please return the form to your school office.

This process is highly confidential and this information is not shared with others. The building principal is directly responsible for making the initial determination. The forms are then sent to the school nutrition office to be processed by a confidential secretary.
