Reduced Prices

If approved for reduced-price meals, cost 40 cents per day for lunch and 30 cents for breakfast.

If your child is approved for meal benefits, you must tell the Child Nutrition Services when your household income increases by more than $50 per month ($600 per year) or when your household size decreases.

You may reapply for benefits at any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now but have a decrease in household income, become unemployed, or have an increase in household size, fill out an application at that time. Applications are available at each school and the Central Kitchen.

If you do not agree with this decision, you may discuss it with the school official and you have a right to a fair hearing. This can be done by calling or writing the following official: Cass Pond , Business Manager, 333-6572

The “Other Benefits-Waiver of Rights of Confidentiality” page which accompanied the Free and Reduced-Price Meals Application allows the district to release proof of eligibility for meal benefits directly to directors of the programs you marked. If you were directly certified, you need to complete the “Other Benefits-Waiver of Confidentiality” page and return it to the Child Nutrition Office. Keep this letter to confirm your eligibility for benefits under the National School Lunch Program in the event you make application for other programs.
