Sign Up for Free and Reduced MealsNow is the time to sign up for Free and Reduced Meals!
As you may know, over the past several years, our federal Title I funding has decreased drastically. This money is directly aligned to the number of students who are eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch. This year, less students have applied for the F&R Lunch Application than in other years, which means we receive less federal money.
**It is important to note that free and reduced meal applications expire every October. You must do a new application each school year, even though the USDA extended free meals for this year.
Why should we apply?
- The more approved applications we have, the more money schools receive.
- It also makes us eligible for state and federal grants.
What programs rely on this funding?
- Reading Intervention classes
- Child Development Specialist
- Educational Assistants
- Student Advocate
- Art Room
- Student Leadership
- Peer Mediation
- Family Fluency Library
- Summer School
Families may also receive help with student body fees, field trip expenses, sports and dance fees
