What are free and reduced-price school meals?
Through the federal National School Lunch Program all students are receiving no cost meals, both breakfast and lunch, through the end of the school year. This is a direct result of COVID related funding and will be available as long as school is in session. If at anytime the district needs to move to remote learning, the program will be evaluated.
