A new meal benefits application must be submitted each school year for those interested in participating in the free or reduced meals program. Only one application is needed for an entire household.  Students are permitted to receive meal benefits based on last year’s meal status only until October 2, 2017, or until a new meal application has been processed. Don’t delay in completing this important document. New applications are available from the school office.

To expedite the approval process of a new meal application, we highly recommend that families click the link below to submit the information on-line.  (If you are having issues opening the links, please use Internet Explorer/Safari)
