Sign Up for Free and Reduced Meals

Now is the time to sign up for Free and Reduced Meals!

As you may know, over the past several years, our federal Title I funding has decreased drastically. This money is directly aligned to the number of students who are eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch. This year, less students have applied for the F&R Lunch Application than in other years, which means we receive less federal money.
**It is important to note that free and reduced meal applications expire every October. You must do a new application each school year,​ even though the USDA extended free meals for this year.


Why should we apply? 
- The more approved applications we have, the more money schools receive. 
- It also makes us eligible for state and federal grants. 

 
What programs rely on this funding? 
- Reading Intervention classes 
- Child Development Specialist 
- Educational Assistants 
- Student Advocate 
- Art Room 
- Student Leadership 
- Peer Mediation
- Family Fluency Library 
- Summer School
 
Families may also receive help with student body fees, field trip expenses, sports and dance fees
