School Meals

The USDA has announced that ALL students -- regardless of family income -- will be able to have a free breakfast and lunch at their school during the 2021 - 2022 school year! This is for the basic breakfast and lunch offered. For lunch, students may still purchase a la carte items. Despite this period of free breakfast and lunch offerings, we need families to continue to complete the application for Free/Reduced Lunch to ensure federal funding for needed programs in the future.
