MEALS ARE AT NO COST TO FAMILIES ALL YEAR!

Hello Parents/Guardians,

We are happy to inform you meals will be free to all students this school year.

  • We encourage all families to submit a meal application, if you usually qualify, as it provides additional educational funding for your school and benefits for your household. It will also ensure your student is covered for free meals the first 30 days of school for the 2022/2023 school year to avoid meal charges.
    • Eligibility guidelines can be found on www.yourchew.com, in the upper left corner, under meal applications.
    • Note - You do not need to complete a meal application if you have already received a letter indicating that your student has been directly certified.

Join us for breakfast & lunch! Menus will be available online at www.yourchew.com.
