Free Meals Ending
With funding from a federal program, the District was able to serve free meals to ALL students ages 18 and under, regardless of meal status, for the past two years. That program is ending on the last day of the 2021-22 school year. Families who think they might qualify for free and reduced meals should apply for these benefits for the 2022-23 school year. If your child is eligible for free and reduced meal benefits and you apply, you can also receive additional benefits like fee waivers, activity scholarships, free screenings, school supplies, and more.

Y-Club Enrollment for 2022-23
The Before and After School Program available to families in the Platte County R-3 School District is Y Club. With Y Club before and after school, children in kindergarten through 5th grade will benefit from homework enrichment, physical activity, and small and large group activities with a focus on building community and youth voice and leadership. Full-time and part-time Y Club is available at each of our elementary buildings (Compass, Pathfinder, and Siegrist), along with Y Club on days when school is out of session for inclement weather, seasonal breaks, and other days off (enrollment permitting). Operating hours are each weekday from 6:30 a.m. until school begins, and again after school until 6:00 p.m. Registration is now open. Click here to register.
If you have any questions about the Y Club program, please contact YMCA at (913) 345-9622.
