The rules have changed!! Foster Children may now be included on a household Application for Free/ Reduced meals. They do not have to be separated out. Just make sure you check the box marked Foster Child. They will automatically be approved for Free meals and the rest of the children on the applicaiton will be approved based upon size of household (including the Foster Children) and household income.
If you have any questions regarding this change please call our office @ 779-8781.
Have your student drop it off in your school kitchen with the Food Service staff. We have 10 business days to process the application (it usually takes 24-48 hours).
You are responsible for all charges until your application is approved.
A letter will be mailed home to notify you of the application results. If you do not receive a letter within 3 days of submitting the application please contact the Food Service office.
If you were approved for Temporary Free meals, you have 6 weeks to contact the Food Service office and/or submit a new application with income information.
Once you have been approved, in order to receive the free/reduced rate, your student must choose a complete meal. That means 3 out of the 4 four food groups, in the appropriate amounts at breakfast and 3 out of the 5 food groups in the appropriate amounts at lunch.
Anything else will be considered Ala Carte and your student will be charged accordingly.
A new application must be submitted each year (It cannot be submitted on last years form). Your child’s status from the prior year will roll over to the next school year for the first 30 school days. After that, a new application must be on file. All charges accrued between when the old one expires and the new one is approved are the parent and/or guardians responsibility to pay back
