Lunch Applications need to be submitted


Dear Parent or Guardian,

During the school closure last spring and over the summer months, Harmony offered meals to all children ages 18 and under in the community. Meals were distributed at select schools at no charge. The last distribution day will be the week of August 10th and will include meals through August 16th.

Online school begins on August 17th, and with the start of a new school year begins meal service under the National School Lunch Program. Just as if meals were served on site, all students will be charged for meals according to their eligibility of free, reduced, or paid. For students of paid eligibility, breakfast cost $1.90 and lunch is $3.30. For students of reduced price eligibility, breakfast cost $0.30 and lunch is $0.40. Parents are encouraged to submit an application for free or reduced price meals by going to www.schoolcafe.com and setting up a parent account. Paper applications may also be picked up from the school on meal distribution days. Once a student is approved for free or reduced price meals, they will remain that eligibility for the rest of the school year and the first 30 days of the next. Parents are encouraged to reapply whenever there is a loss of income or new participation in SNAP/TANF.

Your child’s school will distribute meals on Monday (for Monday & Tuesday) and Wednesday (for Wednesday, Thursday & Friday) between 11:00am and 1:00pm. Meals will only be provided to students who are enrolled at that school. If you have children enrolled in multiple Harmony schools, you will need to visit each campus to pick up meals. For every day in the distribution cycle, your child may choose which days they would like a breakfast and/or lunch meal. A choice of milk is available, but they are not required to take it. If your child has special dietary needs, visit the school website to download the Special Dietary Accommodations form and have it completed and signed by a licensed medical authority.

Here is a link for more in dept information on Meal Distribution Procedures and also Lunch Applications and all Lunch information:

A message from the nurse

Students entering 7th grade are required to have one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria,

pertussis) vaccine and one dose of meningococcal conjugate (MCV4) vaccine for individuals who have not already received those vaccines.

*Tdap Booster
*Meningococcal (MCV4, Menactra)


Please contact your health care provider or local health department if your child needs these vaccines.


All immunizations should be completed by the first day of school. However, you will have 30 calendar days from the first day of school to provide the required up-to-date immunization record for your child. If at the end of the 30-day period, a student has not received a subsequent dose of vaccine, the student is not in compliance and the school shall exclude the student from school attendance until the required dose is administered.


thank you.
