5-17-22 — Change to National School Meal Program for 2022-23

May 17, 2022 ~ The federal funding support that has provided school breakfasts and lunches free to students for the past two years is coming to an end at the end of this school year. With this in mind, please be advised of the following items.

  • For the 2022-23 school year, families once again will pay full price for student breakfasts and lunches unless they apply and qualify for free-and-reduced-cost meals through the district’s application process.
  • The new, federal free-and-reduced-cost application for 2022-23 will be available beginning July 6 within the online registration process. It will also be posted on the district website. Families must apply each year for free or reduced-cost food service, transportation and student registration fees.
  • Filling out the federal free-and-reduced-cost application will be necessary before students will be able to qualify for and access free or reduced-cost breakfast and lunches during the 2022-23 school year.
