Carryover of Eligibility for Free and Reduced Meal Students
In accordance with Free and Reduced Meal Guidelines, a child’s eligibility for free and reduced meals from the 2018-19 school year (last year) will be carried into the 2019-20 school year for 30 days (until September 30, 2019). Parents wishing to continue receiving free or reduced meal prices will need to complete and return the free and reduced meal forms as soon as possible. Whether a child qualified or not in a previous year, anyone can apply for this school year. With the new federal guidelines it is possible for a child to be eligible for the first 30 days, but not for the rest of the year. To keep from losing eligibility, all parents interested in free and reduced meals should complete the forms and return them by September 30, 2019.
