We look forward to providing your students with a healthy and tasty lunch everyday.
Free/Reduced Lunch Applications
If you received a letter stating that you were qualified for free and reduced lunch already, then you do not need to do an application. If you received a letter that stated that you are qualified for free and reduced lunch, but all children in household were not listed please submit another application so we can match all students in the household together. The Free/Reduced Lunch Applications are available to be filled out online at www.lunchapp.com. These applications will be sent home with your student on the first day of school. If you applied last year for Free/Reduced Lunches you will need to reapply again this year all benefits from last year will expire after the first 30 school days. Only one application is needed per household, you do not need to send an application in with every student in your family. If you receive a letter approving you for Direct Certification to the program in August or September before you apply to the program then you will not need to fill out an application. Finally, all applications and people who qualified remain confidential. The application qualifies for the breakfast and lunch programs.
