Free and Reduced-Price Meal News

As a reminder, LVISD transitioned back to Free and Reduced-Price Meals for the 22-23 school year. The federal government is no longer funding the free lunch program, which was part of the COVID-19 pandemic aid package. All families are encouraged to fill out the Free and Reduced-Price Meals applications. If your child previously received free or reduced-priced meals, a new application must be received to determine if your child still qualifies. Previous free and reduced-meal eligibility has now expired. You can fill out the Free & Reduced Meal application online at MySchoolApps by clicking on the following link (available in multiple languages in top right corner):

For questions regarding applications, please contact Michelle Jackson, and for questions regarding student purchases, please contact Jennifer Porter.

Booster Club Corner

With the start of the school year, the LV Viking Booster Club has been busy! We have increased the size of our Board and have a record number of memberships and sponsorships, so we would like to thank the Viking Community for its support! Memberships and Sponsorships are available all year long, so please email if you have any questions.

Membership Pick-Up Night was a great success! The Booster Club Board and BC Members hung shout-out banners, unveiled new fan merchandise, and passed out membership items on Tuesday night. They also sold fan gear at the Middle School Meet the Teacher Night and High School Open House.

New for 2023-24 will be Members' Nights Out and other Booster Club Member engagement events. We will kick off our first event with a paint your own Viking or blank mug at Darling Art School on Saturday, September 23 at 6:30 p.m. Register at

The LV Viking Booster Club is also working on updating our website, so be on the lookout for a new, user-friendly site in the coming weeks.

For all up-to-date information and news, please follow the LV Viking Booster Club on Facebook.
