Application for Educational Benefits & Free/Reduced Meals

  • Meals are no longer free for the 2022/23 school year as COVID related federal funding for meals has stopped. Free or reduced meals can be offered to families that qualify. Applications also impact school funding. Applications will be mailed to households the week of August 1, 2022 and are included in the online annual update process. Applications are also available at the district office and school buildings as well as below.

    If a family does not receive benefits, student meal accounts will need to be funded in Infinite Campus
