Coweta County School System families are receiving a new form of economic stimulus: free school meals for all students!

CCSS School Nutrition, beginning Monday, September 14, 2020, will not charge fees to any student for breakfasts or lunches through December 31, 2020 (the end date is dependent on available funding), based on extended meal service flexibilities from the USDA. There are no forms to complete or income eligibility requirements for this federally funded temporary relief program.

These free meals are not only available to in-person students, but also to all CCSS Empower and Hybrid Learning students who order a week of to-go meals for pick-up on Mondays at each student's base school location. School nutrition will continue to charge fees for second helpings and for district employee/adult meals.

It is still important for all families who think they may qualify for free or reduced-price meals to complete the online application at by September 24, 2020, which is the previous year's approval grace period deadline. This approval will be needed to receive free and reduced-price meals after the temporary program providing free meals to all students ends on December 31, 2020 (dependent on available funding). Additionally, the completion of the free and reduced-price meal application is especially important for Title I and E-Rate funding.

7th Grade Immunizations

All 7th grade students are required to have a current immunization waiver, even if they are attending virtually. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!

Please contact our school nurse, Mrs. Michelle Snider, at, for questions or concerns.
