Free and Reduced Price Meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply please complete our ONLINE "Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form."  

Only one application per family is required. 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.

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. Complete a foster student application with only them listed.  Foster children may be included on the household application as part of the household size, but will not be included in the household meal approval status.

 

Our online Free & Reduced Meal Application System will provide for seamless processing into our student Point of Sale system and a faster turn around on notifying families of your status.  However, we will still provide and accept paper applications, if necessary.  "Free and Reduced Price Meal Application"Solicitud de comidas gratis y reducido precio en Español".  When submitting a paper application, please complete the information release form.
