Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-price meals that will be sent home with each child on the first day of school or it may be downloaded at the link below. By filling out the application and returning it as soon as possible, you will reduce your family costs as well as assist the school’s eligibility for federal and state grants. If you are uncertain about eligibility please call the lunch clerk, Sara Wolf, at 252-6022 (press 7) or Melissa Kittelmann, determining official, at 252-6022 (press 4) for any assistance needed to complete this form.

The free and reduced lunch application for 2016-17 is available at the link below.

It is very important that the free/reduced lunch application is filled out properly and signed by the parent or guardian. The determining official cannot approve an incomplete application. Please remember that an application needs to be filled out on a yearly basis. Even though a child was approved for free or reduced meals last year, a new application MUST be filled out for this year.

A lunch account with an outstanding balance (either negative or positive) from last year will be carried over to start the 2016-17 school year.

There is a 2-meal limit for charging per child. After a 2-meal charge an alternative meal will be served. Alternative meals must have the required food items/components to be nutritionally beneficial for students.

Your children may qualify for free or reduced price meals if your household income falls within the limits on the chart below.
