Meal Applications are Required for Free / Reduced Price Meals This Year!

Free meals for all students expired June 30. In order to receive free or reduced-price meals for next school year, families need to submit a meal benefits application. Please note that students who qualify for reduced meal prices will continue to receive meals at no cost this year.

For every student who turns in the free and reduced meals application and qualifies, our school receives federal funds that help us enhance the learning and family engagement programs we are able to offer.

PLEASE complete a meal application if you think your family may qualify. English - Spanish
