Free Breakfast and Lunch for all Students in 2016-2017 School Year!!!!!!!
PARENTS: Our school system will be participating in the Community Eligibility Program also known as CEP. This is a universal plan under the National School Lunch Program that permits eligable districts and schools to provide meal service to all students at no charge, regardless of economic status that's listed under Section 104a of the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act.
To continue using this program please encourage your student(s) to participate in breakfast and lunch daily. Participation percentages will determine if Sequatchie County Schools will be able to continue serving meals at no cost for every student in the upcoming school year.
New look of school lunch: USDA has set new meal regulations for all schools participating in the National School Lunch program inculding Sequatchie County Schools is required to be compliant with all these regulations.
