Apply for Financial Assistance
The form to sign up for the free and reduced program is now available online. Apply now by following the link below.
Even though school lunches will be free to all students, to receive financial assistance for curricular materials (Chromebooks, textbooks, workbooks, classroom novels, online resources, and supplies like science lab chemicals, and art supplies) families still need to apply to the free and reduced program.
The application must be completed online. If you need access to a computer or assistance filling it out, please contact Gladys Salas at Central Office at 317-867-8002. Summer office hours are Monday-Thursday from 8am-4pm with a lunch break from 12:30pm-1:30pm.
If you do not qualify for the free and reduced program, there are payment plans designed to help parents pay their student(s) fees in smaller amounts.
Free Lunch Meals for All Students
As a part of the United States Department of Agriculture’s national COVID-19 waiver program, Westfield Washington Schools will be providing breakfast and lunch meals for FREE, all year long, to all Pre K-12 students, whether you apply for free/reduced lunch or not. You will still need to apply for the free/reduced program in order to receive financial assistance for curricular materials (textbooks, workbooks, classroom novels, online resources, and supplies like science lab chemicals, and art supplies).
What is considered a free meal?
Students can receive one free lunch AND one free breakfast per school day. Meals must meet the existing USDA guidelines in order to be free, meaning meals MUST include an entrée, fruit/vegetables and milk. A la carte/snack items (extra entrees, beverages, and snacks/drinks) will still be an additional charge.
Do we still need Lunch Time accounts?
Yes, students can still use lunch accounts to purchase additional meals, snacks and a la carte items. If a student does not take an entrée, fruit/veggie AND a milk, their Lunch Time account will be charged for the a la carte items.
Are pre-K snacks free?
Pre-K snacks will NOT be free as the waiver only applies to two MEALS per day.
