Free & Reduced Price Meals

Continuation of FREE breakfast for all students participating in the School Breakfast Program was included in the Governor's Proposed Budget.  As students return for the 2023-2024 school year, they will not be charged for breakfast.  Ala Carte items purchased in addition to the breakfast will be charged to the student's account.
Additionally, students identified as eligible to receive Reduced Price meals
will not be charged for their meals.

Financial assistance is available for families that need assistance paying for school meals. Eligibility for free/reduced meals must be established each school year, regardless of eligibility in previous years.  If you do not receive a "Notification of Approval For Free Meals-Direct Certification" letter before the first day of school, you must submit an application for the current school year.
Eligibility from the previous school year is carried over for the first 30 days of the current school year or until a new eligibility determination is made.
