Meal Applications

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 student's status. Until notification you must provide your student with a lunch or lunch money.

If your student attends one of our CEP sites(Valley Oaks, McCaffrey, or Vernon E Greer), please complete a "Household Data Collection Form".

Only complete one application per family/household. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your student's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. If you have students attending both CEP and non-CEP sites, please complete the "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form" and include all students in the family/household. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. The more applications/data forms our school district can collect, the more state or federally funded school benefits our schools are eligible to receive.

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 should be submitted for each Foster child with the child's personal income listed. Foster children may be included in the family household application as part of the household size.
