When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. This means all families will need to carry a positive balance in their children’s school meal accounts when school begins in the fall.
The free and reduced meal application is needed by the District to determine families who qualify for free/reduced cost school meals, fee waivers, for the P-EBT program and for Federal funding and Title 1 services for our students. Families should complete it in one of the following ways beginning July 1, 2022:
Use the Infinite Campus Parent Portal - click on Application/forms, follow the steps to process your Free & Reduced Application online and sign electronically. These instructions walk through the process.
