There is an important change coming to school meals for the upcoming 22 – 23 school year. The USDA program that has provided free school meals to all students during the COVID-19 pandemic is ending on June 30th. This means that unless qualifying families turn in a free/reduced meal application, they will need to pay full price for meals when school starts in August.

We encourage you to complete the free/reduced meal application for the 22 – 23 school year as you may be eligible to continue receiving the free meal benefit.

Students who qualify for free/reduced school meals may qualify for other benefits as well! Those benefits may include discounts on ACT/SAT testing fees, college application fees, as well as home internet and technology devices, among others.

Students who qualify for free/reduced school meals receive the same school meal options and check out process as students who do not receive free/reduced school meals.

Families who receive benefits through SNAP, TANF, or the foster care system are already enrolled in the free school meal benefits and do not need to submit an application

The free meals, which are safe, nutritious, and delicious, help extend family food budgets too. For more information, contact Megan Rabun, Food Services Coordinator, at (913) 288-4141.

Get Involved!

Join PTA! Our PTA needs YOU! We currently have 3 PTA Board Members, one is a teacher and two are parents. We need more support in order to keep PTA moving forward at Midland Trail. The commitment is small. We meet once a month, after school, for 30-45 minutes. We plan a few activities each year: Back To School, Classroom Parties, Teacher Treats, Candy Sales, and our biggest event is the MTE Carnival. We cannot do this without more support. Please consider joining PTA and offering to help out once a month. You can contact Lorraine Martinez at martinezl@turnerusd202.org or call the school for more information.

Online Enrollment & Student/Family Changes

It's time to update your information! Make sure each student has all updated phone numbers, home address, and emergency contact information in Infinite Campus.

If you need to change daily transportation you must call the office BEFORE 3:15pm. This gives us enough time to notify the teacher and student of any change.
