Free and Reduced Lunch Application Information

Students who qualified for Free or Reduced Meals for the 2015-16 school year are able to use their benefits for the first few weeks of the 2016-17 school year. A new application must be turned in by the first 30 days of school to continue meal benefits uninterrupted. Applications are available online at Lunchapp.com, at all school offices, or by calling the Food Services Department at 668-3138.

July 1, 2016 is the first date we can start accepting new applications for next school year.

If you received a letter stating that your child was approved for meal benefits through the direct certification process, you will not have to fill out another application. In addition, you will want to keep this letter to verify your student's meal status for other programs within the school district.

When completing the free and reduced application, please include all students enrolled in the 2016-2017 school year on one application, sign, date and include the last four digits of your social security number.
