Assistance for Meal Accounts
We encourage applying for your Educational Benefits Application online this year. It will be contactless and still confidential. To get started, sign into your Skyward Family Access Account. Select your students name, click on the Foodservice tab, then Applications and Add Application. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Educational Benefits. Qualification for assistance is based on household size and income as determined by USDA.
*All students, (K-12), when the “Application for Educational Benefits” has determined reduced-price eligibility for 2021-2022, will receive their breakfast AND lunch FREE of charge. This form must be completed each year. Paper applications are mailed to each household in August, or in your child’s school office. You can click on the link below, print, fill out and return into your childs school office. All applications are kept confidential.
*Our school provides healthy meals each day. The United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to provide meals for the 2021-22 school year through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). A waiver has been issued in order to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVD-19.
Our school has chosen to use this waiver and operate the SSO which enables us to provide meals free of charge for all students. No application is required to receive this free meal benefit.
However, your child(ren) may qualify additional benefits such as reduced fees or the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food. At public schools, your application also helps the school qualify for education funds and discounts.
