  • Community programs: Thanksgiving Baskets, Coats for Kids
  • Your application affects funding in many areas!

Please Note: If you received a Direct Certification Letter, you do NOT need to complete a free/reduced meal application.

We encourage all students to participate in the breakfast program. A grab and go “snack” breakfast will be available to K-6 students when they enter the building each day, even if there is a 2-hour delay. MS/HS students will need to come to the cafeteria to receive their complete breakfast.

Remember, this is at no cost.

Healthcare provider notes and Special Diet Prescriptions, filled out by a physician, must be updated annually with your school nurse. 

A copy of the Diet Prescription is enclosed and can be found on the district’s website

 

Student Lunch Account
To limit contact surfaces, we will be switching to a barcode system.  At the MS/HS, the students will be receiving their student IDs with the barcode on it.  They will be responsible for bringing it with them to the cafeteria to purchase food. For the K-6 students, the cashiers will have a roster with the barcodes on it and will record which child has gotten a meal.  All positive account balances will remain the same as they were when the students left for the summer. If your child is new to the District, his/her PIN will be the student identification number that he or she will receive on the first day of school.  Remember that the POS will be connected to the Parent Portal/Infinite Campus. This will allow you better access to see what your student(s) has/have been purchasing from e cafeteria. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please contact your building administrator to sign up for one. On-line payments can be made through the Parent Portal for a fee of $2.50.
