When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the USDA had a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, this program will not continue to be funded. This means all families will need to carry a positive balance in their student’s school meal accounts when school begins in the fall.
We understand this change may cause you to worry. However, there are important steps you can take to be sure your student receives the meals they need next year. If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them, but you must take action to make it happen. Forms will be sent home with students and can also be picked up at the office.
