Free Breakfast/Lunch Program

  • Last week the Federal and State Government extended the Summer Food program for free meals, both breakfast and lunch, for anyone from 2 to 18 years old. You will need to sign up for these FREE meals by completing the appropriate links below. This is the first time we are offering this while students are physically in school, so please choose carefully. 

    Because we have all of our elementary students in the building every day and our middle and high school on the hybrid model, this program will look a little different in each setting. 

    Elementary students (Grades K-5) can sign up for free breakfasts, free lunches, or both. The kitchen staff will follow the menu as closely as possible, so what is on the menu is what they plan to serve. Due to supply issues, the menu is subject to change. I know that many choose to bring cold lunches on the days of meals your child may not prefer. By signing up for this program, you are committing your child to get the meal each day. If your child chooses not to eat it that day, they can either decline taking the meal, or they can take the meal home with them. 

    For Preschool and Kids Club students that eat while at school, please complete that form so we have an accurate count for them as well.

    The  middle and high school will continue as it is now, but all of the meals will be free.  However, if a child wants to go back for seconds, there will be a regular lunch charge.  If you want meals sent home for the days they are not physically in school, please complete the appropriate school form below.  Meals will be sent home on either Thursday or Friday afternoon with the students. We chose Thursday and Friday because our middle and high school kitchen staff do not have students on Wednesday, therefore they will have time to prepare these meals. 

    We have included a link for our full-time  Distance Learners (grades K-12) as well. Please sign up accordingly. These meals(breakfast and lunch) will need to be picked up behind the high school on Wednesdays between 11:00am -1:00 pm.

    You will also see a link for those  not attending our schools, but that live in the district. Again, this program is for anyone from 2 to 18 years old. We will be placing this link on our website and getting the word out to others that might be homeschooling or if you have younger or older children, please sign them up with this link.  These meals(breakfast and lunch) will need to be picked up behind the high school on Wednesdays between 11:00am -1:00 pm.

    NOTES:

    • It is very important that you sign up for these meals as it is a federal program and we need to get an accurate count of how many meals are served. 

    • We would like to start this program next week so please have the forms completed by Sunday, September 20th at 5:00 pm.

    • You will only complete the forms once and that signs you up for the duration of the program.

    • If you qualify for free/reduced lunches, please still complete the Free/Reduced Application now so that when this program ends, you have completed all the necessary paperwork.

    • If you have questions or need to make changes, there is a contact phone number on the form specific to each location.


    Please click on the appropriate link(s) below and complete the forms specific to your household. This will help give the food staff some idea of how many lunches are needed at each location.
