Free and Reduced Lunch Application

We are asking that all families complete the free and reduced lunch application available at http://www.myschoolapps.com/ or the paper form that was sent home in the beginning of the year packet.

Even though the State of Maine has agreed to fund breakfast and lunch for all Maine public school students, if a student qualifies for free or reduced lunch, federal funding will continue for those students as it did pre-pandemic to offset the cost of meals. This demographic data also informs our school funding through the state and helps pay for programming - including Title 1 Literacy and Math - here at CPS.

Even if you think your family may not qualify, we appreciate you taking the time to complete the form. If you use the paper form that was sent at the beginning of school, please put it in an envelope and it will be sent confidentially to our nutrition office. If you need another form, give the office a call at 207-445-1550 and we can send another copy home as well.

Thank you for your support of our schools!

Mrs. Britten, our new CPS Librarian!

Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Britten to our library! We are excited for her new role here at CPS, and for all of her great ideas to help kids spark their love for reading.
