Free Breakfast and Lunch for ALL Students

Our district has received wonderful news from The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Services.  Beginning tomorrow, Monday, September 14, our school district will be able to serve free lunch to all students attending school physically under Option One regardless of their free/reduced lunch status. The USDA is making the program available until December 31, 2020 or until the funding runs out, whichever comes first.  It is recommended that families still complete the free/reduced meal application so that the service will continue in January 2021 for your child or children if they qualify.  Qualifying applications not only provide cost savings to our families, but they also provide funding and opportunities for our district.  If you have questions regarding this opportunity or meal applications, please contact our Food Service Director, Mrs. Dorothy Balzer.  We are very excited to be able to provide this opportunity for our students.
