The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that it will extend the free school meals program helping to keep millions of kids fed amid the Corona Virus Pandemic through the new school year.
Students may receive one breakfast and one lunch each day. USDA will only reimburse the school for meals, not just milk. If your student brings cold lunch and takes a milk, the milk will be charged to your account. A la carte items, including milk for milk break, will also be charged to the student account.
Even though the meals will be free right now, we will still collect Free and Reduced-Price Income Applications. The October 31 free and reduced numbers are critical in determining eligibility for other programs that are beneficial to students as well as our district. If you would normally submit an application for free or reduced meals, or if your income is down this year (or at any time in the year), please consider filling out the income application.
