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 child's status. Until notification you must provide your child with a lunch or lunch money.
Only complete one application per family. The information you give will be used to determine or prove your child's eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits.
Your eligibility may be checked at any time during the school year. School officials may require you to send pay stubs showing that your children should receive free or reduced-price meals.
Foster children are eligible for free meals. Foster children are defined as being placed by the court or a ward of the state. An application must be submitted. You may include them in the household with children that are not foster children living in the same household. You must include any personal use income for the foster child. The household count and entire income will determine the eligibility of the household, but the foster child is automatically free.
If you are applying for a single foster child on an application, it must include the child’s name, the child’s “personal use” income, and an adult / guardian signature.
