When the 2021-22 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. We understand this change may cause you to worry. However, there are important steps you can take NOW to be sure your student receives the meals they need this school year.
If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them this year, but you must take action to make it happen. If you don’t receive a notice via USPS from us indicating that you have been directly certified for free or reduced meals, please complete the 2022-23 online application. To complete the Online Free/Reduced lunch application, parents/guardians can Login to ParentPortal and complete the application. Click on your child's name, then click "Food Service Free & Reduced Lunch Application" under School Links. Paper applications are also available at the school where your child attends or here.
If you do not qualify for free or reduced meals, you may begin depositing money into student accounts at any time to prepare for the cost of school lunches next year. Information on meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are listed below;
- Elementary & Middle School Breakfast is $1.85, Lunch is $3.40
- High School Breakfast is $2.00, Lunch is $3.90
