Free/Reduced Priced School Meal Applications
Families who wish to apply for free or reduced priced meals need to complete a new income application every school year. The free/reduced price edibility of our returning students rolled over to this school year for the first 30 days. However, last year’s Free/Reduced Priced Meal Applications are set to expire on October 2, 2017. Students who currently receive free or reduced price meals but whose family have not yet summited a new application for the 2017-2018 school year will be changed to full pay status. Households will be responsible for all cost of each meal purchased until a new 2017-2018 application is submitted and processed. If you have any questions please call or email your child’s Cafeteria.
