FREE AND REDUCED APPLICATIONS
Some parents are concerned about listing income amounts and social security numbers on the application. Any personal information you provide will not be shared:
Free and reduced-price meal applications are confidential. Your information will only be used to determine your child’s eligibility for the school meal programs. We cannot share your information without your written permission. This year’s form only requires the last 4 digits of your social security number.
Students who receive free and reduced-price meals are not identified. No other students, staff, or teachers need to know who is receiving free or reduced meals and who has paid.
TWO IMPORTANT REASONS TO FILL OUT THIS FORM:
If your child qualifies for free and reduced-price lunches, he or she qualifies for free and reduced-price breakfast as well. We want to help your child eat healthy meals at school.
Your child may receive other school benefits. The number of applications that are returned and approved can affect how much funding our school gets to help students meet academic benchmarks, including material like books and computers.
