We wanted to take this opportunity to remind each family about the “Free and Reduced Lunch” program. The “Free and Reduced Lunch” program is funded by the federal government to assist families who could benefit from reduced meal costs for students. Those families who do qualify are able to get school breakfast and lunch for their children at a much lower cost or no cost at all. Many of our students already benefit from this program. We would like all who qualify to also take advantage of this opportunity. We strongly encourage every family to fill out this form, which remains confidential. Just because you qualify, doesn’t mean you have to participate, but it will help the school to do more than we have before to benefit all students. Unfortunately, if our percentage of students drops below the qualifying level, we can also lose the funding for our school. That is why we need your help at this early date by filling out an application form. To apply or reapply for the 2020-21 School Year, click here. An application in English can also be found here. An application in Spanish can be found here.
