Fee Waivers & Free/Reduced Lunch Information

Lunch Information

Trexler understands that many families experience economic hardships and challenges in paying for both school fees and school lunches. For this reason, the federal government sponsors a Free/Reduced Lunch program in which you may qualify and the Onslow County School District offers a School Fee Waiver process that is based upon your child’s lunch status. If you haven’t already, please consider applying for the Free/Reduced Lunch program online at the following link: as this is the quickest method for gaining approval. If you do not have computer access and need to use a device, just let us know and we will be able to assist you in the front office or the application can be submitted on a paper form that we also have in the front office and can send home with your child. If using a paper application, please return the meal application to Trexler or the school nutrition office at the district office. Only one application is needed for a family so please include all children names on the application. Often families meet the guidelines for qualifying for Free or Reduced pricing and are not aware of the opportunity. If by some chance a family qualified for Free or Reduced pricing and did not want the savings, you can decline the free or reduced savings.

School Fees

Please submit a copy of the letter that the district Child Nutrition office mails to you in order to allow Trexler to waive your child’s school fees. We can make a copy of the form for our records or you can take a picture of your letter and send it to the homeroom teacher if that works better for you? If you need another copy of your letter, please call the district Child Nutrition office at 910.989.2021 ext. 20504.

Account/Fee Collection Process

The Onslow County School District has implemented new requirements for Middle Schools to ensure that student lunch accounts are paid in full. Therefore, students will need to be current on all accounts and school fees to attend school dances that occur after September 2017.

Once again, ensuring that students and staff know and understand how to respond to possible emergencies helps maintain a safe environment.
