  • Application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals must be renewed each year.

    The required information is as follows:

    Food Stamp/TANF households - Households that currently receive food stamps or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) for their children, only have to list each child's name and food stamp or TANF case number and sign the application. Link card numbers cannot be used.

    Confidentiality - Information submitted on your application is only used by school officials to determine if your child(ren) qualify for free lunch/milk. The signature of the child's parent or legal guardian is required on the application to allow school officials to determine eligibility for other services.

  • Verification - School officials may verify the information on the application at any time during the school year.

    • the names of all household members;
    • the social security number of the adult household member signing the application, or the word “none” if the adult does not have a social security number;
