Dear Families, As we are about ready to start a new school year, I wanted to pass on some information regarding school meals, school fees, and Chromebook insurance. The District has been approved to offer school breakfast and lunch at no charge for this school year. In order to qualify for free, it needs to be a full meal. Milk break, seconds, milk with a sack lunch brought from home, and a la carte items will need to be charged. The Board of Education approved waiving all school fees for the 2021-2022 school year. The Board of Education also approved waiving the charge for Chromebook insurance for this school year. Even though the District has free breakfast and lunch and is waiving school fees for this school year, please consider completing a free and reduced meal application as the District is eligible for grant funding based on the number of students that qualify. Have a great year!
