FREE MEALS!

The US Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, announced USDA released waivers extending FREE MEALS to all students through December 31, 2020 (or contingent on the availability of funding). One free breakfast meal and one free lunch meal per student per day. Students must choose a fruit OR vegetable to make their breakfast or lunch a MEAL. NO paperwork necessary. This applies to ALL students- in school or online!  Students will need money on their account for any a la carte purchases that are in addition to the free meal (this includes milk for students who pack their lunch).  A la carte items may include but are not limited to bottled water, iced tea, extra entrees or sandwiches, ice cream, extra french fries, bagged chips or snacks.
 
The free meals are for students only.
 
*On January 1, 2021, all student eligibility will revert back to the correct meal status of free, reduced or paid. Even though paperwork is NOT necessary for free meals through December 2020, we are encouraging parents to apply for the free and reduced price meal program if you have done so in the past or had a change in income. This will help the transition in January from free meals to student eligibility.
 
Any student who purchased meals from August 31 to September 11 will be refunded for those meals. Thank you for your patience as we work through this exciting change!
