• Free and Reduced Meal Application 

    Free or Reduced Meal Applications must be renewed each year.  If you qualified for Free or Reduced Meal benefits during the previous school year, a 30 school day grace period will be applied.  Your benefits will then expire after the first 30 school days of new year.   If a new application has not been received, your student(s) will be charged for their meals until the application is received and approved for benefits.  These meal charges cannot be reversed and will become the parents obligation to pay.    

    When students are approved for Free or Reduced meals, it covers reimbursable meals and does not include additional milks or second meal charges.
