📝 NOTE: There will be no meals available July 4-8 due to regularly scheduled building maintenance and deep cleaning.




With the expiration this fall of the program which allowed for free meals for all students during the 2020-2021 & 2021-2022 school years, it will be more important than ever to make sure you have a current Free/Reduced Price Meal Application on file. If you filled out a form last school year, the grace period only extends 30 days into the new school year, so don't forget to fill out a 2022-2023 form as soon as possible. (The new form will be active on our website after July 1.)

Completion of the Free/Reduced Price Meal Application benefits families and the school district in multiple ways, so apply even if you aren't sure if you'll qualify!

Participation rates directly impact schools’ eligibility to receive state and federal funding, which provides valuable resources that play a key role in our students’ success.

In addition, students who qualify for benefits may also be eligible for discounted rates on:

  • District Technology User Fees
  • Fees associated with applying for college
  • Fees associated with academic tests such as the ACT, SAT, and AP exams
  • Scholarship opportunities

After July 1, 2022, the 2022-2023 form can be filled out on our website here. Or, if you prefer, you can download a digital version to fill in and print out here.

NOTE: any additional items (a la carte, additional meals/items, extra milk, etc.) will incur a charge
