English Instructions for Free and Reduced Meal Application.pdf
Turn in Applications to:
Any one of our school offices, school cafeterias or District office.
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 returned (completed) to any school office.
Foster children may also be eligible for these benefits regardless of household income. If a household has foster children living with them and the household has not previously been notified by the School District that their foster children have been directly certified for free meals, the household may either include and count the foster children (including personal income earned by the foster children) on the household application form with other non-foster children or complete a separate application form with the names of the foster children.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if household size changes, the household should contact the school to file a meal application. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for free or reduced price meals if the household income falls at or below the levels shown on the "Eligibility Guidelines" link below. A complete copy of the policy is on file in each school and in the office of the District Superintendent where any interested party may review it.
Only complete one application per family. You will be notified by mail of your child's status. Until the application is approved, you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.

Parents wishing to make a formal appeal may make a request either orally or in writing to Dr. Fay S. Sprouse, Superintendent whose address is 56 South Greenwood Ave, Ware Shoals, SC 29692 for a hearing to appeal the decision.
